The Android-based STB works with any television.

Viewers can stream content from any device directly to their TV screens without any lag, download thousands of apps and also play games right on their TV sets without needing an additional gaming console. Adding to the seamless experience, d2h stream users can operate and control the device with simple voice commands using the Alexa built-in Remote.

‘d2h Magic’ – the voice-enabled kit with a dongle and remote powered by Amazon Alexa is priced at Rs 1,199 and available for select d2h subscribers. This kit allows users to access popular OTT Apps and thousands of Alexa skills through their existing STBs.

To get started, customers will need to set up the kit with their Amazon account. Once set up, customers can simply say – ‘Alexa, tell me the news’, ‘Alexa, what’s the cricket score?’ or ‘Alexa, play latest Bollywood songs’, to enjoy a voice-controlled experience.
