New Delhi: DTH operator Tata Sky on Thursday unveiled its first batch of Made in India- set-top boxes which have been manufactured in partnership with Technicolor Connected Home and Flextronics.

Talking about this landmark milestone, Tata Sky’s MD & CEO, Harit Nagpal said, “The India-made set-top boxes will help generate employment while reducing lead time. The boxes have been tested and re-tested beyond the factory floor for quality assurance, and we hope this endeavor will help us to serve the Indian consumers even better.”

According to the DTH operator, the project builds further on the long-standing partnership between Tata Sky and Technicolor Connected Home, which provides set-top boxes and broadband access solutions for network service providers (NSPs) around the world. The mass production of the set-top boxes developed for Tata Sky by Technicolor Connected Home started in Chennai, in partnership with Flextronics in June 2021.

Technicolor Connected Home, president, Luis Martinez-Amago said the announcement marks the accomplishment of objectives outlined in August of 2020, in which Tata Sky and Technicolor Connected Home committed to shifting the production and distribution of STBs – including Android TV-based Binge+ set-top box – within India.

“This is another step in Technicolor Connected Home’s continuing investment in the growth of the important Indian market. The disruptions brought about by COVID-19 have illustrated the importance of having manufacturing and distribution operations that are as close to the subscriber base as possible. We remain committed to minimise risks and total cost of ownership of STB deployments,” he added.
