How Do I Register or Activate My BSNL IPTV Service?

For clients of Bharat Fiber/FTTH, BSNL has launched a special portal for IPTV registration at subscribers of BSNL FTTH in Ernakulam, Alappuzha, and Thrissur may sign up for the IPTV service using the dedicated portal, which is available to all BSNL FTTH subscribers in India. Customers of BSNL FTTH are needed to register for the IPTV service by providing their Bharat Fiber/FTTH phone number, email address, and cell phone number.

Benefits of BSNL IPTV over OTT, cable, and DTH services.

Because BSNL IPTV employs a dedicated MPLS backbone, the level of service assurance is at its highest. Additionally, BSNL is offering a dedicated lane for IPTV material, which won’t interfere with regular web surfing or data use. It implies that a 100 Mbps FTTH consumer may browse, download, and watch HD channels all at once. The BSNL FTTH price plan does not include or combine data use for IPTV services. Customers may use their mobile phones, tablets, or TVs to view their preferred TV channels.

Absence of Carrier fees and Network Capacity Fee (NCF) is another benefit of IPTV service. Customers of BSNL IPTV are not required to pay any carrier fees or Network Capacity Fees (NCF), unlike those of Cable TV or DTH. In Cable TV/DTH, all TV channels are sent in real time to the client’s set-top box (STB), whereas with IPTV, channels are delivered to a customer on-demand from the closest IPTV cache server. The NCF fees for 200 channels will be Rs 130 + taxes per month in accordance with the most recent TRAI rules. A DTH/Cable TV customer must also pay Rs 25 for each bundle of 20 more channels that are added to their subscription.

Why you should select BSNL as your FTTH supplier.

Only BSNL has such a powerful and resilient optical fiber backbone that stretches throughout the whole nation of India. The Andaman and Nicobar Islands to Chennai undersea optical fiber cable project (CANI) was recently launched by Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi.

The inability to extend last mile optical fiber access to customers was what BSNL genuinely lacked. The PSU has signed revenue-sharing agreements with Telecom Infrastructure Providers (TIPs) and Local Cable Operators (LCOs) to resolve this issue by having these TIPs/LCOs provide and maintain services. The PSU was able to add millions of new FTTH broadband subscribers thanks to these agreements throughout this epidemic time. Customers may now sign up for BSNL FTTH broadband service through the Book My Fiber page. The greatest fiber broadband service currently offered, with excellent quality and guaranteed bandwidth, is BSNL FTTH. Customers may now easily use True Triple Play services—Voice, Video, and Telephone—with the introduction of ITPV.
