Dish TV India, Set-Top Box (STB) chipset provider Acer Labs (ALi), and Korean multimedia device supplier Handan further extended their partnership by launching the latest hybrid solution, Dish Box, to enhance the TV experience for subscribers in India. The new set-top box developed by the partnership will enable Over the Top (OTT) services.

Dish TV India is expanding its OTT offerings by introducing Dish Connected Box, allowing subscribers to enjoy both Digital Video Broadcasting (DVB) TV and OTT content.

ALi’s System on Chip (SOC) was chosen due to its wide compliance with mainstream Conditional Access System (CAS) security features, ideal for DVB-S2 Pay TV applications. In this joint collaboration, the SOC was adopted as the core of the Dish Connected Box to integrate OTT apps, developed by Handan. The integration of hardware, software, and middleware will help enable subscribers to view both OTT apps and DVB-broadcasted contents.
