Chinese tech firms Xiaomi and TCL have revealed that their TVs will get the JioCinema app soon. While Xiaomi teased the announcement on Twitter, TCL has sent a press note to the media fraternity apprising them about the development. Just like other OTT apps, JioCinema is an on-demand video streaming platform with over 1 lakh hours of content, including movies, TV shows, originals, music videos, among others. It also provides content in regional languages like Hindi, English, Tamil, Kannada, Marathi, Telugu, Bengali, Gujarati, Bhojpuri, Malayalam, Punjabi and dubbed content.
The app also has an exclusive Disney section where users can watch movies like like Marvel's Avengers: Age of Ultron, Captain America: Civil War, Iron Man 3, UP, Wall-E, Ratatouille, and Guardians of the Galaxy just to name a few. While, Xiaomi hasn’t announced when the app will be available on its PatchWall UI, a teaser on Twitter likely means that an update will be rolled out soon. It is also unclear which TV models will get the update.
