A new feature called "First Day First Show" will be made available to all Jio Fiber users where people will be able to watch some movies right from home on the day of their release.

Reliance Jio, which has now become India's biggest telecom operator and second-biggest telco globally (in a single country) has now set its sights on home broadband service in the country.

At the Reliance AGM, Ambani also revealed that Jio Fiber plans will come bundled with subscriptions to most leading premium OTT applications, possibly referring to Hotstar Premium and Netflix.

Ambani also announced that voice calls from home to any Indian operator - both mobile and fixed line - will be absolutely free forever.

He said that Reliance and Microsoft will launch cloud data centres, offer Office 365, and Azure Cognitive Services in the country. As a result, the company got registrations from 15 million homes from 1,600 towns which enabled Jio to plan to launch the services for 20 million residences and 15 million SMBs in these towns.

One family, one plan Jio will also allow seamless connectivity across voice, data and other plans.

Ambani had a couple of announcements for startups and SMBs in India as well. It is also setting up pan-India edge computing and CDN network.
