Pakistani infotainment service AT Global has abruptly gone off air this evening, leaving many questioning the future for the channel.

AT Global, which broadcasts on Sky Digital channel 837, has been showing a frozen image since around 18:30 today.

There has been speculation for days that the channel was to cease broadcasting but a spokesman at AT Global denied this on numerous occasions. However, the channel had been running indirect on-air appeals for various funds including raising money for the channel’s transmission.

BizAsia.co.uk was awaiting a reply from AT Global about the channel’s sudden “departure” at the time of filing this article. Is it a technical glitch or something more permanent, keep it with us for more.

Recently, AT Global was slapped a warning by media regulator Ofcom for telecasting promotional messages during programming airtime.
