Guys

I have DEN cable connection in my house. Now my cable operator told that from next month DEN will become Jio DEN and all packs/plans price will drop.

I want to know is it true or he is lying?

Also I have one query in my mind! What will happen after this merger? Will DEN STB be replaced by new Jio STB? Also will current cable system be replaced by Jio broadband and we'll require Internet connection to watch channels?

Or is it just merger and DEN cable will keep working as usual?

My query is will DEN continue to work as usual as MSO or will Jio convert it into fiber broadband using new STB?

Do you really think that Reliance JiO will remain a minor & silent partner there ?
As their network is new have so much of teething troubles that's why they want to have some established cable networks in the kitty to achieve last mile connectivity.

JiO already have 12% stake in DEN now what is coming ?
I think it going to be consumer friendly at least for first few months or year.
Keep figures crossed
They have 78% stake in Den not 12% bro.

@DTH Fan , they'll replace your DEN STB with the Jio STB & they'll give free preview for few months. Internet connection is not required for watching TV channels. I asked the LCO of our area & he said this. I asked him about the other things/features of giga fibre but he was not knowing about those. He said that they've only got the information about replacing the STBs after few months.
