Pakistan Electronic Media Regulatory Authority has awarded the Internet Protocol TV (IPTV) license to M/s Optix Pakistan (Pvt) Ltd, Lahore.
The license of IPTV has been awarded for the Northern Telecom Region-1.
Chairman PEMRA Saleem Baig handed over the license to Optix Pakistan Ltd representatives at the authority’s headquarters.
PEMRA has already awarded IPTV license to Fiberlink (Pvt) Ltd for Karachi and Lahore zones.
Internet Protocol television (IPTV) is the delivery of television content over Internet Protocol (IP) networks. This is in contrast to delivery through traditional terrestrial, satellite, and cable television formats.
Unlike downloaded media, IPTV offers the ability to stream the source media continuously. As a result, a client media player can begin playing the content (such as a TV channel) almost immediately. The most widespread IPTV service provider in Pakistan is PTCL.
