The set-top box supports web apps and it comes with 500GB of disk space. Users can forward or rewind a show and one can also pause it. It offers a resolution of 1080p and it features Dolby Audio as well. It comes with the Series Link feature, through which it can record all episodes of your favourite TV series, and skip the repeats.
Meanwhile, Tata Sky is reportedly planning to cut channels and packs of around 70 lakh customers in India. The company’s latest move is to bring down the monthly bill of its subscribers during the Coronavirus outbreak.
The company has lost over 1.5 million customers during the lockdown period as the users have failed to pay bills or renew subscriptions, which was a result of layoff and cut in incomes. The company said that the move is meant to retain customers with monthly billing of Rs 350 or less. With this, the company will reduce the subscribed channels and packs of almost 70 lakh subscribers from June 15.
