The Android 9 Pie will allow users to enjoy TV as well as the best shows available on OTT platforms like Hotstar, Netflix, ZEE5 and many more. The Tata Sky Binge+ android TV set-top box will be available for a price of Rs 5,999 for new subscribers according to the website. The Tata Sky Binge+ android TV set-top box also comes with a new remote control that has a built-in microphone, which allows users to give voice commands.
The set-top box also offers more than 5,000 apps from Google PlayStore. The Tata Sky Binge+ Android TV set-top box comes with 2GB RAM and also gives 8GB internal storage. The built-in Chromecast allows you to mirror whatever you are watching on your smartphone to your TV. Tata Sky Binge+ subscribers can also listen to music by using apps like Spotify.

Tata Sky’s new set-top box will be competing with Airtel’s Xstream box and SMRT HUB by DishTV. Airtel’s Xstream box price has dropped from Rs 3,999 and now is available for Rs 2,249.
