Bharti Airtel has introduced a hybrid DTH set-top box (STB) which claims to convert any TV into a smart TV allowing end-users to watch YouTube, Netflix videos along with regular satellite TV channels.
Called Airtel Internet TV, the hybrid DTH set-top box connects overs Wi-Fi to provide the smartphone entertainment experience on your larger old TV screen
The hybrid DTH STB makes no sense without a reliable, high-speed Wi-Fi internet connection.
Before getting the Airtel Internet TV, make sure you have a good Wi-Fi plan, preferably with unlimited data offering.
It requires a broadband or a 4G hotspot connection with a minimum recommended speed of 4 Mbps for a smooth online experience.
The Airtel Internet TV is just like any other STB with the added smart Android TV feature.
For those unaware, it is more like an Android PC-on-a-stick device that is combined with the standard STB.
A regular Airtel Digital TV dish antenna will also be a part of the installation.
Existing Airtel Digital TV customers can also upgrade their existing STBs to ‘Internet TV’ STB
