Pakistan is expecting the launch of Over-the-top TV, that is being acclaimed as the Pakistani version of Netflix. The network is going to get launched within the next coming 6 months. Fawad Hussain, Minister for Science and Technology, notified the public regarding this new initiative.
OTT, the acronym for Over The Top, consists of two parts; one of them is wholly dedicated to the tech, and the other one includes the content.
While informing the public about his new take, he stated that the government is already done with the work on the technology part, while work on the content part is still ongoing.
The Minister plans on taking both tech and content companies on the same board, where they will have the opportunity to start TV in collaboration. The project will be dispatched as soon as Pakistan Electronic Media Regulatory Authority gets done with its guidelines.
