Right after Indian government allowed satellite television services in the country, many DTH companies started blooming up. Reliance came up with its own DTH service namely, Reliance Big TV. Though its initial sale shot up earning the company 1 million subscriptions within 90 days of its launch, it lost its popularity after a few months. But the DTH brand is making a big comeback with the Reliance Big TV offer that has come live from today.
“Reliance Big TV is going to mark the beginning of a new dawn in the way Indians have been accessing entertainment on their TV sets,” said the director of Reliance Big TV, Vijender Singh.
What is the Reliance Big TV Offer?
Reliance is planning to offer its customers free DTH HD service! Yes, guys, you read that right! This is what the Reliance Big TV Offer is all about. In order to lure in more customers, the company will give effectively free HD DTH service till the stocks last.
In the support of Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s Digital India campaign, Reliance has launched this offer.
