Airtel TV is now available on the web: You can watch more than 100 live TV channels
Online content platforms have been extremely popular with mobile internet becoming cheap. After seeing a host of third-party players jump in and rule the segment, telecom players are themselves participating in the game to snatch a share of the pie. Jio was the first one to jump in with its JioTv a few years ago and others followed. Airtel has been offering its Airtel TV in the guise of a mobile app and now, it is moving a step ahead of its rivals.
After limiting its TV service to the mobile app, Airtel has now released the Airtel TV service for the web. Subscribers will now be able to enjoy content from the app on the web. Therefore, the consumer now gets to watch the content on computers anywhere anytime. With this service, Airtel has essentially made available almost 100 live TV channels on the web.
All Airtel subscribers need to do is simply go on to website (www.airtelxstream.in) and log in with their Airtel number to access the service. Once logged in, the subscriber will able to see all the content available for free. For watching premium content, subscribers will need to pay for the packages. If a subscriber has done that, even the premium content is available to watch online.
The app offers more than 350 live TV channel across news, entertainment, infotainment, music, movies, devotional, lifestyle, kids, sports across multiple languages like English, Hindi, Tamil, Telugu, Bengali, Kannada, Malayalam, Marathi and more. The service makes available content from some popular streaming platforms such as Zee5, Hooq, Eros Now, YouTube and others.
In comparison, Reliance Jio's JioTV is only available in the form of an app. JioTV isn't available on the web but it also offers access to TV channels - both live as well as recorded. JioTV also doesn't require additional paid subscription as it is complimentary with all Jio recharges. However, Jio's TV service will be soon coming to the GigaFiber service scheduled to launch within a few weeks.
