Jio GigaFiber launched in 1,100 cities across India was the biggest event of the RIL AGM. A Fibre-to-the-Home (FTTH) broadband service with which Jio GigaFiber aims to deliver wall-to-wall broadband service for mobile devices. It will work on TVs with the help of GigaTV set-top boxes and smart home devices. Those with GigaTV will also be able to make phone calls to other TVs, phones and tablets on Jio GigaFiber networks.
But my question is for Jio, are we ready for Video calls from TV? Do we have web cam ready inbuilt in smart TVs available in the market?
For now, my answer is No! As there is no TV available in the market, which has the web cam features. Even I checked with the leading TV manufacturing companies such as Sony, Samsung, LG, Videocon, and Panasonic.
So, if there is no TV with Web cam available in the market, Jio is launching Video calling feature rom TV for 2050 I guess!
Here we have what, Isha Ambani said in AGM, “Jio was built to connect us to loved ones. When Jio mobility services were launched 2 years ago, video calling was one of the most loved features. Now we are bringing to you Video calling to your TV, with Jio TV calling you can call every other TV that is powered by Jio Giga fiber by that’s not all, you can also call on mobile and tablet connected to any network. Just imagine, every child on Giga fiber home will have live access to the world’s best educational content and teachers. Anyone with the health problem can get real time consultation with the best doctors and receive the best medical advice right at home.”
If Jio is planning this way – are the consumers ready to make this transformation from ordinary Smart LED and LCD TVs to the video calling television?
