The HD channels I am watching on Jio STB are not of HD quality.

If I do a speed test on Netvelocity app then it shows 40-50 Mbps which should be enough for HD quality, however, if I do a speed test via JioPages browser speedtest.com or fast.com it shows the usual 95 Mbps

I have no clue what is happening

Not sure about the speed test results. But, regarding quality, Jio may be restricting the quality for now (or forever), just like how Amazon controls the quality of videos of youtube in its firestick platform (in fire OS precisely). We can use / watch only a maximum of 720p video in YouTube via Amazon firestick, irrespective of higher quality of original video.

I think my fire tv stick plays 1080p youtube videos just fine.
But I bought it after the release of native youtube app for firetv stick.

Watching live football on Hotstar and the picture quality is bad on Jio STB.

However its fine if I use Chromecast and my own hotstar account.

So the connection isn't definitely the issue here

Jio might be throttling or streaming at lower bitrate inorder to save the user from finishing up thier poor fup or prevent network congestion.
