Bharti Airtel has slashed the price of its DTH service provider box, the Airtel Xstream Box, by Rs 499. The setup was earlier listed at a price of Rs 2,000 on Airtel's website in India. It was launched in India back in September 2019 at a price of Rs 3,999.
According to a report by Dream DTH, this pricing is applicable only for the new Airtel Digital TV connections along with the Xstream Box option that have either been purchased via Airtel's website or offline via authorised dealers. The offer is also said to be available for a limited time period.
In addition to reducing the price of the Airtel Xstream Box, the telecom service provider is also offering a one-year Disney+ Hotstar subscription and a three-months Amazon Prime Video subscription for free to new subscribers. In addition to these, the company is also offering subscriptions for other OTT platforms such as SonyLIV, ErosNow, and Hungama to the new Airtel Xstream Box subscribers for free.
Airtel Xstream Box specs and features
For the unversed, the Airtel Xstream Box is a DTH Set Top Box (STB) that comes integrated with a Chromecast for streaming OTT services such as SonyLIV, Netflix and Disney+ Hotstar among others. It runs the Android 9 Pie-based Android TV OS and it gives users access to over 5,000 apps and games via the Google Play Store.
