People familiar with the matter have denied plans by the company to sell the Jio Media Cable. Meanwhile, Reliance Jio hasn’t shared any official information on the matter.

Last year, we first heard about Jio Media Cable which lets JioPhone connects to your TV to stream content, live channels and more.

Now according to a Twitter user, Reliance Jio is all set to launch the much-awaited Jio Media Cable soon for Rs 1,499. With Jio Media Cable, users will be able to connect JioPhone with old CRT and the latest LCD/LED televisions.

After connecting your JioPhone to a TV, you will be able to cast all the channels from JioTV app as well as content from other Jio apps like Jio Cinema.

The Jio Media Cable will come in two variants, one with HDMI support which will connect to all LCD/ LED televisions with HDMI port and other with RCA cable to connect your old televisions with AV input.

The package bundle will contain a small adapter and a cable.

Jio has kept the packaging colour-coded to differentiate HDMI and RCA variants. The HDMI variant will have a red packaging (M533), whereas the blue box pack is for RCA cable (M532).

How The Reliance Jio Media Cable Works?

 

The Jio Media Cable arrives to be quite similar to TRSS cable. It splits the signal emanating from the Jio Phone into Audio & Video.

However, there are two variants. One is similar to the one shown above and the other one has HDMI out. Unexpectedly, both the cables connect via the Micro USB port on the Jio Phone.

Incidentally, it is this connectivity that significantly limits the applicability of the Jio Cable because a majority of the devices or smartphones that offer TRSS jacks (Raspberry Pi is a good example) don’t support Audio/Video output via the Micro USB port.
