Internet, Now On The Biggest Screen At Home

Airtel Internet TV's UI that takes together a set-top-box and an Android box effortlessly, allowing the freedom to run any app you want, be it content or games.

How to make a dumb television smart has been a question gripping the tech world for some time. Now it seems the explanation can also be found in a set-top-box. Airtel has just launched its Internet TV box in India and it’s a new concept that merges two old concepts — the set-top-box and an Android box.

Airtel Internet TV

The Airtel Internet TV box looks like a regular STB, maybe a bit larger than my Tata Sky Box. It has the card jutting out of the box from the side, which is a bit of an eyesore. The best thing about the box is the remote, which gives you the freedom to get rid of the TV remote and just use this for all your TV needs.

The Internet TV, as I mentioned before, is a mix of two things. But the good thing Airtel has done is to create a UI that brings the two together effortlessly. The dashboard is brought to life by the Airtel button on the remote, which acts a bit like the Home button. The UI has tabs for Home, games, apps, Netflix, Aritel Movies and even an Android Home where you can add new apps to the box.

The box offers a very visual programme guide which is segregated channels and the option of reminding you about the programme or even recording it, if you add a storage option to the box. This is something very unique to this box and could end up being its USP. Plus it tells you the titles that are playing at the moment as a curated stream which is a great way to discover content.
