Airtel Digital TV today launched Internet TV, an Android TV Box developed in partnership with LG. Airtel claims it to be India's first hybrid direct-to-home (DTH) set-top box (STB).

Airtel Internet TV offers more than  500 satellite TV channels and comes pre-loaded with Netflix, YouTube, Google Play Music, Google Play Games and Airtel Movies. It also comes with Google Play Store, meaning, you can download your fav apps and games and run on the TV. 

The device comes with built-in Chromecast support to let you cast contents from your laptops, smartphone or tablet to the TV screen. It also comes with a Bluetooth remote which supports Google Voice search, so that you can search for favorite contents by giving voice commands. You can even connect any gaming controller or you smartphone as a gaming pad.

To stream content from online services to the Airtel Internet TV, you'll need a broadband or 4G hot sport connection with 4Mbps minimum speed for a smooth online experience without any buffer. You can pause, rewind and record live TV shows as well.

If you're interested in the technical details, the Airtel Internet TV comes with 2GHz dual-core processor, 2GB RAM, 8GB internal storage, microSD card slot, WiFi 802.11ac, Bluetooth, HDMI 2.0, USB 3.0, USB 2.0 and Ethernet ports. It is compatible with external hard drives (via USB port), Dolby Surround Sound Audio and supports 4K streaming from Netflix and other streaming apps. 

The Airtel Intenet TV has been priced at Rs. 4,999 which includes three-month digital TV subscription. For a limited period, there's a Rs. 7,999 plan which gives one year subscription with all SD and HD channels included, three-month subscription to Eros Now and one-month Netflix trail. 

Existing Airtel TV users can upgrade their existing set-top boxes to Airtel TV Internet STB at Rs. 3,999. Airtel is also offering additional data of up to 25GB for its broadband subscribers, when they register for myHome on MyAirtel App. As part of launch offer, all SD channels can be availed for Rs. 500 per month and all SD and HD channels at Rs. 700 per month.
