Only VIP is part of subscription not premium

Sony LIV has premium content

Once you reach LIVE tv the box does buffer <1min into stream and then streams for 5-10min then buffers again... My thought is the HLS is very bad for larger screens as they(hotstar/Live channels) dont stream with high bitrate the max i saw was only 2.4mbps which is terrible for 1080p... the initial with bad quality is auto by default and everytime you have to set to high to get decent stream. which is annoying AF.
trust me thats not my phones fault the actual streams looks POS.

the box has L1 security certificate so if they bring in Netlix and prime then we can expect full 4K/even atmos.

this was taken from non jio (hathway) connection via 5GHZ band.. i feel bad to post the Jio speed test where the upload speed is only 3.8mbps. i dont use speedtest.net but speedof.me to test speeds..

i got the box with tuner in it... i guess it may be used as DVB-C box when LCOs signup with Jio.

The box does have atmos/DTS--HD so the box has great potential but right now it POS.....

Final word:

The box has great potential but locked to only jio is wasting its potential.... all stream testing was done with JIO fiber and via 5GHZ
people who say live needs Ethernet not wifi, for streams with only 2.4Mbps wifi is more than enough.... so overall i would say they just rushed in to launch and put off many users from continuing the paid plan.... until jio is fully capable of giving JIOtv/top OTT streaming apps, you are better off with chinese android box which does same thing but even better...

FAQ
1: Can we sideload/install apk?

A: NO
2. Can we watch Amazon prime /netflix via browser?
A: NOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

3. Can we watch OTT app without subscription?

Still 1000gb free data exist? Or only 200gb pm?
once you go for paid plan or getting new connection your plan will be what the commercial FUP.... mine is 200GB/m and have complementary 200gb voucher which can be used after using up the FUP.
