Information circulating the Internet suggests that Reliance Jio Infocomm is working on a set top box service in cities like Mumbai, Pune and Chennai
Images of a Reliance Jio set top box has leaked online suggesting that the company will enter the set-top box space soon. The leaked set-top box has a rectangular design much like existing set top boxes and also has a USB port in the front.
Jio is rumoured to be adding a new feature called ‘catch up’ which will allow users to stream content from past seven days. The company may initially launch the service with 300 channels to be followed by more channels.
New leaked images suggest Jio might stick with a rectangular design for its set-top box after all. The pictures show a blue box with Reliance Jio branding on top as well as new set-top box. The device has a number of ports including a standard cable connector, HDMI, USB, as well as audio and video output. There’s also an Ethernet port, which will allow users to connect to a modem to offer broadband.

The Department of Commerce’s National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA) posted the first public, searchable, and interactive nationwide map of broadband Internet availability on Thursday. It took about $200 million in funding to create the map, which serves up a database of over 25 million documents detailing the type, speed, provider, and location of broadband service across the U.S. You can see from the map that the further west you go, the more spotty the coverage.
“The National Broadband Map shows there are still too many people and community institutions lacking the level of broadband service needed to fully participate in the Internet economy,” said Lawrence Strickling, head of the NTIA.
Up to 10 percent of U.S. homes, most of which are in rural areas, don’t have access to basic broadband, the map reveals. At the same time, broadband adoption has increased to 68 percent of U.S. homes, up from 63.5 percent in 2009.
