Reliance Big TV, which rolled out an attractive DTH offer a couple of months ago, today confirmed its partnership with 50,000 post offices across the country. With the help of these post offices, the DTH service provider will facilitate the booking of its high-definition, high-efficiency video coding (HD HEVC) set-top boxes. However, at the time of pre-booking, customers will be asked to pay an amount of Rs 500. The company will commence the pre-bookings from June 20 across Rajasthan, Punjab, Uttarakhand, Andhra Pradesh, Karnataka, Arunachal Pradesh, Assam, Manipur, Meghalaya, Mizoram, Nagaland and Sikkim.
Customers in these regions can head over to the post offices and book the set-top box. “Now, every Indian household can have our HD HEVC set-top boxes at their disposal and can be booked from listed Indian post offices,” said Vijender Singh, Director, Reliance Big TV.
Earlier in March, Reliance Big TV started pre-booking of the STBs across Maharashtra & Goa. And yes, the pre-bookings were taken through the post offices in those two regions.
At the end of March 2018, Reliance Big TV, under its new leadership team announced a new offer with the promise of free DTH services for one year at Rs 2,000. After the completion of one-year, customers will be required to pay an amount of Rs 300 every month to get the services free for every month. Also, the company will be refunding the entire amount of Rs 500 (pre-booking) and Rs 1,500 (which will be collected at the time of installation) after a period of three years.
“With this tie-up, we will have a wider reach since Indian Post Office has an incredible reach. The same would help the users to book this incredible offer by paying Rs 500 at any of the post offices in the stipulated states,” added Singh.
Reliance Big TV announced that users could enjoy over 500 channels for one year, post which they can enjoy the services at Rs 300 per month. Also, the cashback amount will be provided in the form of recharges only, which in turn will again deliver services for another two years. The initial booking of the STBs started on March 1, 2018.
