New Delhi. Plenty of confusion is being observed centering Jio set top box. Lack of clarity on the plans and pricing of the service could mean two things: either the company is still unclear of its future plans for the set-top box or it is running quietly running a test run of the service. Earlier we have seen that Jio rarely talks about the pilot run of its services. The same is true for the Jio set-top box that is real and is actually reaching consumers for wider testing purposes.


Currently, Jio set-top box is one of the most talked-about devices in the market. With not much information on it from the company, people are left puzzled. Many users also felt betrayed as the company at the announcement of Jio GigaFiber had said that it would be giving set-top box free with the device. This was clearly not the case as Jio did not offer any set-top box during the pilot run of its broadband connection. 
The Jio set-top box now comes free with a JioFiber connection. Consumers don't have to apply separately for the device. The company charges Rs 2500 at the time of installation of JioFiber out of which Rs 1000 is the installation charge and the rest Rs 1500 is the security deposit. You can return the set-top box at any point of time if you are not satisfied with the service. 


The Jio set-top box is different from the conventional set-top box in regard to how it pairs with your TV. Jio set-top box turns a normal TV into a smart TV using its given functionalities. The Jio set-top box turns your TV into a smart TV by running third-party OTT apps like Hotstar, Zee5 and likewise. Note that Jio currently does not offer to access to Jio TV apps via set-top box which means subscribers will have to get a separate cable connection to access normal television channels like ZEE, Sony and likewise.
