How to Activate / Register for BSNL IPTV Service?
Currently, BSNL IPTV service is available to customers in Ernakulam, Alappuzha and Thrissur districts. BSNL customers in these cities who are registering for IPTV service on or before 10th September 2020 can enjoy one month free subscription to FTA (Free To Air) channels.

BSNL has opened a dedicated Portal for IPTV Registration - https://fms.bsnl.in/iptvreg for the Bharat Fiber/FTTH customers. The dedicated portal enables BSNL FTTH customers in Ernakulam, Alappuzha and Thrissur along with the BSNL FTTH customers across India to register for the IPTV service. The BSNL FTTH customers are required to submit the Bharat Fiber/FTTH phone number along with the email and mobile number to register for the IPTV service.

Advantages of BSNL IPTV as compared to OTT / Cable TV/DTH service.
BSNL IPTV uses dedicated MPLS backbone and hence the service assurance will be maximum. Moreover, BSNL is providing dedicated path for IPTV content which will not affect normal internet browsing / data usage.  It means, a 100 Mbps FTTH customer can surf / download at 100 Mbps speed and watch HD channels simultaneously. The data usage for IPTV service will not be added or clubbed with BSNL FTTH tariff plan. Customers may also watch their favorite TV channels on their mobile phones / tab / TV.

Another attraction with IPTV service is the absence of Carrier charges / Network Capacity Fee (NCF)Unlike Cable TV / DTH, BSNL IPTV customers need not pay any carrier charges / Network Capacity Fee (NCF). In Cable TV/DTH, there is real time transmission of all the TV channels up to the customer St Top Box (STB) whereas in IPTV, channels will be served to a customer on-demand from nearest IPTV cache server. As per latest TRAI guidelines, the NCF charges for 200 channels will be Rs 130 plus taxes per month. In addition to that, a DTH/Cable TV subscriber has to pay Rs 25 for every bundle of 20 additional channels added to his subscription. 

Reasons to Choose BSNL as your FTTH provider.
BSNL is the only operator in India to have such a strong and robust Optical Fiber backbone which spread across the nook and corner of the country. Recently, Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi inaugurated BSNL's submarine optical fiber cable project (CANI) from Chennai to Andaman and Nicobar Islands.

What BSNL actually lacks was the inability to extent last mile optical fiber connectivity to customers. In order to overcome this issue, the PSU has made revenue share agreements with Telecom Infrastructure Providers (TIPs) and Local Cable Operators (LCOs) so that the service provisioning and maintenance will be done by these TIPs/LCOs. With these agreements, the PSU was able to add millions of new FTTH broadband customers during this pandemic period. Now customer may also register for BSNL FTTH broadband through BSNL's Book My Fiber portal. BSNL FTTH is the best fiber broadband service currently available with superior quality and assured bandwidth. With the launch of ITPV, customers may enjoy True Triple Play services - Voice, Video & Telephone seamlessly.
