Radio Pakistan Starts Live Internet Stream

The Pakistan Broadcasting Corporation (PBC) has started live streaming of its broadcasts on the Internet.

The step has been taken to bridge the divide through enhancing focus on integration of communication and opportunities for development. By streaming on the Internet, Radio Pakistan has not only extended its radius of coverage but also provided easy access to its listeners worldwide.

According to a statement issued by the PBC, programmes of National Broadcasting Service (NBS) can now be listened live on the Internet. The service is a dedicated Current Affairs Channel of Radio Pakistan, which broadcasts news, talk shows and interviews of prominent personalities besides social and cultural programmes 17 hours a day, starting at 6:55 a.m. and concluding at 12 midnight.

In the background of fast moving events around the world, it was felt that the audience needed to be kept informed with the latest events. For this purpose, a News & Current Affairs Channel (NCAC) was launched on April 18, 2001, which was the only channel of its kind in Asia. NCAC was converted into Current Affairs Channel (CAC) and then on August 28, 2008, it was converted into NBS. As Radio Pakistan starts its new Internet Streaming Service now, listeners around the world can get easy access to various programmes live on the address www.radio.gov.pk

    good move from Radio Pakistan…
    something to change

    • I think its not new because I use to listen to live broadcast 5 years ago when I use to live in Lithuania..

  • Muhammad Zohair Chohan

    Its good to see that they are also streaming FM101 from 1200 – 1400 Hours and 0000 – 0400 Hours

    But let me quote extracts from Radio.gov.pk about 1 year ago they claimed:

    In October 1998 Radio Pakistan started FM transmission from Islamabad, Karachi and Lahore under the title of FM-101 exclusively for entertainment.
    FM 101 service is also available on:-
    Internet
    Thaicom

    Biggest joke ever! Their so called FM doesn’t tune on Radio sets (LAHORE), how come its available on internet when they launched online streaming now?
    moreover the official website of Fm101 http://www.fm101.gov.pk/ is showing Coming soon since i first visit there about 5 years ago.
    Here is a glimpse of their speedy work, i wrote to them when they updated the web for elections results!

    Congratulations for having a website, after a long interval of four years.
    Please complete it as soon as possible, we cant wait for another four years.
