The Ministry of Science and Technology at Pakistan has announced their initiative to create a Pakistani version of Netflix, i.e Pakistan’s first OTT Tv.
Fawad Chaudhry, announced via tweet that all technological regularities were in place. A first of its kind, the OTT platform will be available to the audience soon.
Chaudhry added the technical aspect of the platform has been completed and now, PEMRA has been asked to prepare guidelines for the content that will be screened on the medium.
The politician is hopeful the medium will be up and running in no time.
The need for a local OTT platform has been emphasised upon by many Pakistani artists, especially after five Pakistani original series were picked up by an Indian streaming giant.
