Pakistan set to launch its own version of Netflix

  • Fawad Chaudhry says the Science and Technology Ministry has asked PEMRA to prepare a guideline on content to launch OTT TV in PPP mode
Updated 23 Oct 2020

(Karachi) Minister for Science and Technology Chaudhry Fawad Hussain has said that the government is all set to launch country's first over-the-top (OTT) TV, the Pakistan version of Netflix.

In a tweet on Friday, he said: "The Science and Technology Ministry are all set to launch Pakistan’s first OTT Tv (Pak version of #Netflix)."

He added that the technology part is complete and have asked PEMRA to prepare a guideline on content and we will be all set to launch in PPP mode. He remarked, "It will be just another humble contribution."

Since taking government office, Prime Minister Imran Khan and his team has been striving to promote technology in the country.

As part of the initiative, the PM also launched Tele School Television Channel with an aim to impart education to children at their doorsteps especially during the lockdown situation.

The channel benefits those children living in remote areas where there is no infrastructure for primary education.

Similarly, Ministry for Science and Technology launched a mobile app to make it easier for citizens to get real-time information about the different phases of the moon.

The app has been named ‘The Ruet’ in reference to the Ruet-e-Hilal Committee (RHC), the primary moon-sighting committee responsible for announcing the start of lunar months.
