JADOO TV is it worth the Price?

I wanted to watch IPL (Indian Premier League) cricket this year that is 2009 . But it is quite expensive to buy the channel that shows cricket , specially if you live in USA and Canada . A friend of mine actually told me about the new TV box that i can purchase online .
Jadoo TV that is . The idea behind this box is that you plug a Ethernet cable ( DSL cable from your Router) behind it , then connect the audio video cable supplied with it to your TV , turn the Box on and start watching your favorite channels on your TV. Don't worry if your router is far away from the TV . This package also contains a wireless USB adapter that will connect your Jadoo TV box to the Internet wireless , but you have to have a wireless router.
The remote control that is supplied with it is tiny , but still big enough for you to see what you are pressing. Over all the good invention , made in china after all , but what thing isn't ? . The price however , is a little bit too much for the quality. Currently going for $199.00 + Tax Plus shipping charges will get you the box for $225.00 . Now if I only want to see IPL , then that is a lot of price for that , because i can get IPL for the same price on TV for a whole year . The quality is much better on regular Dish or Direct TV and i can record it on Tivo or similar device.
If you are looking to see other channels like Geo news , Geo Tv and all other Indian and Pakistani channels then the box is worth the price. Again if you don't mind the low quality picture and sometimes delay in transmission , this box is perfect for you.
Upon searching on google , I found out that this Box is similar to the one already used by a different source http://www.vunow.com/ . This box is identical to Jadoo Tv but the only difference is the software that is installed in it , which only lets you see the American channels.
There is just one more thing to it, the availability of the channels is not guaranteed , you might have it one day and the next day it might not be available. Since this Box brings only the streaming channels from the web , the service is not very reliable. They do give you 3 months warranty on the equipment.
So cutting it short , it is not the best investment , where there is no guarantee on the return. Be sure to leave a comment if you like and more information about any related product.

Jadoo Tv has a new Digital  HD Box , which is going for  $250.00 on their website . This new Box has a much better quality , has many new channels ,  and  has a high resolution. One thing that is not good is that the resolution is only 480i , So , if you have a new flat screen TV then  you will have to adjust the size or even  zoom in to fit the screen . you can get one at http://www.jadootv.com/  .

One of the key features of Jadoo2 is the wireless 11n USB dongle. The increased range of Wireless 11n eliminates "dead spots" better known as buffering issues in homes served by Wi-Fi router communicating with Jadoo2™ box over the network.

  13. I think best way to get it is order online from jadootv web-site.But they dont offer all the Punjabi Channels.Before jadoo had alpha,PTC,Jus but now they only have Chardikla, DD Punjabi, Apna Tv, No punjabi movies.In canada/ USA punjabi community is the biggest one but underserved on TV.

  14. Can anyone tell me how fast internet service is required for this to work efficiently? Would 8 mega bite works?

  15. Installed Jadootv about 2 yrs ago and canceled dish network. I think I purchased it for about $170 or so. I feel that it payed itself in just about 6 months. I have since then watched a lot of cricket as well as various Indo/Pak news/views/ entertainment/drama etc channels.The box also let you watch several recorded shows.

    ReplyDelete
  16. i bought jadoo 2 for $350.00 in canada. i think it is worth to buy it. i know sometimes it buffers or channel not available but still its worth it as one can find lots of channels all the time. for example i bought this 1st nov 2010 since then i watched sab tv only twice but geo tv (both) and ary always there. so i guess down the road it will pay off that 350 dollars which i m saving atleast 25 dollars for 3 channels every month on rogers cable

  19. Yes, I recently bought Jadoo TV and me and my wife are very happy with it.

    Lots of Indian Channels, the only issue, is no guide for the TV, and also it streams TV Shows in UK Timing, so sometimes, have to miss some shows.

    The quality is good and I could also watch the Cricket between India and SA.

    Hope this helps someone.

    Thank you,

  22. Jadoo box has all of a sudden stopped streaming SAB and Zee tv for last 2 weeks...

    ReplyDelete
  23. Spending 250 on jadootv is not worth it. You can do the same thing with other streaming devices for less like boxee, or roku or even appletv2 for $99 only. You can buy any of these boxes and follow the above steps that I mentioned to watch desi channels. You need to crack these boxes though.
    If you need style and brand then get appletv and install boxee (boxee.tv) or install xbmc (xbmc.org) on it. They both the instructions on their sites how to do it. Once you have installed either one of the above said you can follow the same steps to add the desi channels from idesitv.com or vexcast.com.

    whoever bought these so called jadoo tv shit got ripped off bad and they are idiots...let me tell u how jadoo shit works and ppl have been doing this shit for long time: get a legal satellite > hook it up to pc (not going to explain how this is done...figure this out on ur own) > find a good server with unlimited b/w > stream your satellite channels to that server > create a website and stream channels there (figure this out on ur own...im not going in details)> charge ppl to watch live channels on your website = profit.....now lets look at jadoo, it does the same shit but uses "box" which connects to its own server where all these channels are being streamed.....some desi guy's dick got blown off when niagara3 came out and couldn't crack it so he decided to make quick cash by doing the above mentioned thing so no satellite required.............my advise to u guys is not to buy this garbage cuz this will only last for few months or less then u have to waste another $$$ to get what? jadoo3...4..5? also jadoo,btv, shava, mela ...all uses same generic box just with their own logo...all that box does is just interface it with ur tv and connects to some private server which streams live sat channels

  51. Jadoo Tv It's a haux. I bought Jadoo TV When it stopped working I called the help line The guy at helpline was some Pakistani and when I said that my box is Jadoo 1 he immediately made conclusion that your box is dead and you have to buy new one and that too at more expensive rate than it is available on internet. Jadoo tv has first made a name and then now they are making money by misguiding their customers.

    1. I have a Jadoo 3 Box ,and to be honest I am very impressed with the quality . It is very high definition and it has all the channels that I like , I can not list them here . Your internet connection must be at least 5 maga bits per second or more . It is a great device and I recommend it .

      Delete
  57. I too have Jadoo 3 and yes it's big improvement from Jadoo 1. For $200 you get non-stop entertainment and all the Indo-Pak channels. I don't expect it to last for more than a couple of years, as they will come up with Jadoo 4 or 5, but I will be happy even if it lasts for that long as it will be $8.33 per month. Anything over two years will be a bonus. I highly recommend it.

  66. was as recently as in March 2014 that JadooTV was acquired by a Silicon Valley-based, privately-funded and Intel Capital-backed company CloudStram Technologies, along with Pearl Media Group and Altair Techonologies to create what has been hailed as a “vertically integrated OTT power house.”

    Cloudstream had in its press release stated that “the acquisition catapults it to be the dominant multicultural OTT provider, gaining access to a well-known OTT brand JadooTV, the largest south Asian user base in excess of one million viewers, key content deals, and proprietary technologies.”

    The JadooTV website openly states that it is offering channels such as News Express, Zoom, Mtunes, Mastii, Aaj Tak, 9XM, Music Xpress, FoodFood, Dhamaal, Big Magic, among many others from India to subscribers. Nowhere are the mainline GECs such as ZeeTV, Sony Entertainment, Colors or Star or the SunTVs mentioned as being available to viewers, though it says many more channels are available apart from those listed. And a perusal of all its Facebook pages catering to subscribers in various countries
