SCO Gets IPTV License from PEMRA

Pakistan Electronic Media Regulatory Authority (PEMRA) has awarded Internet Protocol TV Distribution Service License to Special Communications Organization (SCO) for Gilgit Baltistan (GB) region.


In this regard, a signing ceremony was held at PEMRA HQ Islamabad. The ceremony was attended by Major General Ali Farhan HI (M), Director General SCO and Muhammad Saleem Baig, Chairman PEMRA besides senior officials from both sides.

Internet Protocol television (IPTV) is the delivery of television content over Internet Protocol (IP) networks.

IPTV services offer both live TV broadcasting and stored video on demand (VoD). It provides a wide range of geographic coverage and vast range of internet solutions for both consumer as well as corporate sector.
“In the era of fifth generation warfare, we would be able to defeat the hostile external narrative through this medium.” said Major General Ali Farhan, HI (M), DG SCO.

SCO intends to work with the local operators and be a facilitators rather than a competitor as earning of revenue is not a priority for us.

With this agreement, SCO will become the only telecom operator to offer IPTV services to the people of far flung areas of GB. Through IPTV services, SCO will be able to meet the local requirements.


  • PEMRA is total failure department. They even could not be able to start DTH services in Pakistan. After the issuing of one DTH license in February 2019, still no sign of DTH in Pakistan.

  • Who could stop them? DHA, Fauji Fertiliser, Fauji Cereals, Fauji Cement, Askari Bank, and what not. The deep state continues to expand. These SCO people have not let anyone offer 3G/4G in Kashmir/GB region for last three years. Just imagine the strength of this mafia.

    • all these companies have lacs of civilians both on managerial and labour levels so i think so far so good for them as sco is best sirvice
