The intuitive feature is aimed at changing the way we access Sports telecast. With the new feature, viewers will get a chance to enhance their viewing experience by toggling between 5 different camera angles. Viewers can also switch to their preferred language of commentary. Alongside English and Hindi, the channel also supports regional languages like Kannada, Telegu, and Tamil. That apart, the Jio TV viewers will also get access to opinions of leading cricket experts and commentators including Zaheer Khan, Ashish Nehra and Gaurav Kapoor.

Henceforth no need to wait for the scorecard to roll over, since the stream allows you to check the score and the other quintessential statistics with a tap of a button. Additionally, you can also catch up with the recorded telecast and replay the desired segment of the match. In order to get this feature, the JioTV users need to update their app to the latest version. Adding to that, you can also stream the telecast on your TV considering that you have a Chromecast or any other equivalent setup.

“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.
