As of now on JioTV it is only available in English but considering the demand for dubbed shows in regional languages they should make it available in other languages too before making a debut on linear TV. 

The channel was launched in September 2007 in America, in early 2019 it expanded its international reach to the United Kingdom, Ireland, Brazil and last year landed in South Korea and Hong Kong. Some of the popular titles of this channel include Aerial America, Ice Airport Alaska, Hell Below, Air Warriors and more.
