Reliance Jio has now added Amazon Prime Video app on its JioFiber set-top box (STB). The telco had launched this smart STB device last year, but it didn’t have many OTT apps support. The major drawback was that it didn’t have the Amazon Prime Video and Netflix in the list of OTT apps. Now, Jio has got Amazon Prime Video onboard, but the Netflix app is still missing.
The JioFiber STB users will now see the Amazon Prime Video app there in the apps offering list, and they can access it with their own Amazon Prime subscription. Reliance Jio is not offering it for free. At present, JioFiber user can access a list of VOD streaming apps which include Zee5, ALT Balaji, SonyLiv, Voot, Jio Cinema, Disney+ Hotstar, and more, first reported by OnlyTech (via NDTV Gadgets360).
Meanwhile, Jio’s video calling app is coming to rival Zoom. The telco has already announced that it will soon launch ‘Jio Meet‘ video conferencing-cum-collaborative app. It’ll integrate Jio’s eHealth platform along with eEducation platform in the Jio Meet app.
At present, the Jio Meet’s landing page notes “Thank you for your interest in JioMeet”. It is expected that there will be a dedicated Windows and Mac app, and Outlook plugin alongside the Android and iOS app. To note, Jio Meet app will let you sign in with the OTP alongside the usual email sign-in process.
