JioTV launches India's first interactive sports experience

Live TV app JioTV has announced that it has introduced India’s first interactive sports experience for consumers watching the ongoing tri-nation Nidahas trophy which is being shown exclusively on JioTV in India. 
With this, JioTV consumers can interact with the game while watching it, which it said is a revolution in the live TV space.
A press release from telecom services provider Reliance Jio said customers who watch the tri-series can customize their viewing experience by selecting from five different camera angles.
They can experience audio from stump mic and stadium ambience, giving an immersive feel. They can choose commentary in a language of their choice from Hindi, English, Tamil, Telugu and Kannada.
Customers can get access to leading cricket experts and commentators including Zaheer Khan, Ashish Nehra and Gaurav Kapoor. They can view score and other details on demand, on a single click.
They can also watch catch-up (past content) in case they have missed a ball or a six, the release said.
"Once again, Jio has put the power of technology in the hands of the consumers, enabling them to challenge status quo. Till date, viewers are fed a single feed with broadcaster controlled video, commentary and score-boarding. With this innovation of digital interactivity, the game-viewing experience will get redefined," the release added.
“Interactivity in sports will transform the way sports is consumed in India. Jio continues to deliver the best and most premium content exclusively to its users through the Jio apps. Additionally, we have challenged status quo and redefined the existing user experience, with the help of technology. Jio will continue to bring a superlative consumer experience in the areas of sports, AR, VR, Immersive viewing and more in the coming days,” said Mr. Akash Ambani, Director, Jio.
JioTV users need to update to the latest version of the app from relevant app store to get this feature. 
JioTV, which recently won the prestigious Global Mobile (GLOMO) Award 2018 for the “Best Mobile Video Content”, has acquired the exclusive India digital rights for the T20 cricket series Nidahas Trophy - a tri-nation T20 competition being played at Colombo from March 6 to 18, 2018 between host Sri Lanka, Bangladesh and India. JioTV will provide comprehensive coverage of the triangular series, enabling millions in India to access live and catch-up content on their mobile devices. The event coverage on JioTV will commence on match days at 6:25 pm.  It will include live and repeat telecast and highlight packages.
