Tata Sky launched its Binge + (STB) decoder last year. The Binge + is a second generation hybrid DTH decoder based on the Google Android TV platform. The Android based 4K set-top box allows users to watch live TV via DTH and OTT content over the internet. As it is an Android supported device, it gives users the benefit of downloading apps from PlayStore. Now Tata Sky is offering its Binge + users a free set-top box (STB), but the offer is applicable to some users. Tata Sky users can benefit from this offer if they top up through the mobile app or its website. Users with a top-up of Rs 6000 for one year will be able to benefit from a free Binge + STB upgrade offer from Tata Sky with an STB.

Tata Sky Binge also offers a bundle subscription to several OTT platforms such as SonyLIV, Disney + Hotstar, CuriosityStream, Voot Select, ZEE5, EpicON, Voot Kids, Eros Now, HungamaPlay, SunNXT, Docybay, Hungama Play and ShemarooMe.

According to a report from Telecom Talk, along with a one-month free subscription to Tata Syy Binge, users will also have access to Amazon Prime Video for one month. Tata Sky notes that users must have a stable internet connection that offers an internet speed of at least 4 Mbps to get the most out of their Binge + decoder.

Separately, Tata Sky Binge + costs Rs 2,499 for new users while existing Binge + STB users can get a second Smart Box for Rs 1,999. The STB comes with 2GB of RAM and 8GB of internal memory. Users can also expand this memory up to 128 GB using an SD card. The price of Binge +, each month, is Rs 153 for the most basic TV channels and Rs 299 for OTT applications, once the free subscription period ends, with an additional Rs 129 per month for Amazon Premium, which decreases to Rs 600 per month.
