I’m hearing the AndroidTV part of the Xstream box i.e. using apps like Netflix, Youtube, Hotstar etc. won’t work unless DTH account is active. Is this true?

I was mildly interested in the box because of a single remote and input to TV for all my needs but if the reports are true, it will be a no go. And also an anti-consumer move by Airtel.
