Airtel Digital TV, the third largest DTH operator in the country, is offering a huge discount on Xstream Box. The Android-powered Xstream Box is reportedly available at a whopping discount of Rs 1,750 to new customers in the Delhi-NCR circle. The move can be seen as a way to counter the impending launch of Tata Sky Binge+ set top box. Airtel has been one of the big gainers in the DTH market and now seems to be further expanding its reach by offering discounts on its devices.
