Ratings and Reviews from users

Mr.Abhishek Pradhan: Best TV app to replace your Cable TV This app has all the features necessary to replace your existing HD Cable or DTH connection because it has 411 channels ( as of writing), past seven days content may be viewed at one’s discretion, schedule future recordings (unlimited I guess) and no need of providing storage space for those recordings as it is stored in JIO servers. Did I miss out any other major feature? Get rid of your existing cable or DTH connection and enjoy the future of TV, aka IPTV or Internet TV. All the best Jio TV.
