Jio TV for PC and Smart TV: How to Download and Install JioTV on TV and Laptop to Watch Live TV for Free

Jio TV is a one-stop solution for all your Indian and global entertainment needs with content in over 15 languages. The streaming application lets its users stream a plethora of HD Live TV Channels (including Sony, Star Sports, among others) without purchasing a DTH connection. In this day and age where users are shifting to streaming services like Netflix and Hotstar, you may still wish to have Live TV Channels in your Smart TV or Laptop without paying a subscription fee.

While JioTV is available for free on Android and iOS smartphones, there’s not an application available for the AndroidTV or Laptop interface. One solution is to get the Jio Smart Setup Box, but you’ll require a Jio Fiber connection to make that happen. This post will guide you on how you can download, install and stream Live TV channels via the JioTV application on PC and Smart TVs.
