    I don't think it will be accessible to all. and it will require a STB+Modem box which is costing 4500 approx.

    Also laying fibres everywhere will be a big task, maybe only metros for now...
    But for the 6months welcome offer, people will be ready to pay 4500, moreover, they'll broadband and tv using single device...

    If it's not in small cities then it's of no use for many.

    Satellite is more reliable than Jio's Fibre optic and I doubt whether this venture will be a success by looking at their current Jio 4G speeds

    The technology is more of a hybrid between traitional dth, digital cable and iptv I think.
    Yes at that moment, I also think dth i reliable. But lets see what unveils in future.
    For speed concerns, wired speeds will always be much higher than wireless, and I think even if it drops from 1Gbps to as low as 100Mbps also, it'll be enough for hdtv stream. Moreover, who knows, we may even see the birth of 1080p channels...
