After buying the Reliance JioDive VR headset from JioMart, scan the QR code on the package and install the JioImmerse application on your mobile device. Allow access to all permissions and connect with the Jio Network.

Go to the "JioDive" tab and click "Watch on JioDive." Now, open the front cover, insert the device among the support clip and the lenses in JioDive, shut the front cover, and put on the JioDive headset, adjusting the straps to fit properly on your head.

Use the center and side wheels to fine-tune the picture quality for the optimal viewing experience. Apart from binge-watching IPL, you can also use JioDive to access other VR content and play games, but you will need a Jio 4G, 5G, or JioFiber network to access the JioImmerse app.
