Free-to-air Asian entertainment channel, DM Global has increased the number of hours it dedicates to Pakistani news channel, Aaj TV.
The channel has been broadcasting Aaj TV content for a number of months but has recently added extra shows to ramp up its programming. No doubt, the channel’s stronger output is in response to the sudden explosion of Urdu news and entertainment channels in the UK market. DM Global has cut down on its local programming during primetimes, to make way for live and recorded shows from Aaj TV.
Recent additions on the channel include ‘Faisla Aap Ka’ Monday, Tuesday & Thursday at 19:00, ‘Court Room’ Tuesday at 20:00, ‘Spot Light’ at 22:00, ‘Islamabad Tonight’ at 20:00 (Thursdays), ‘Ru Baroo’ at 19:00 (Fridays) and ‘Main Kamli’ at 20:00 (Fridays). There are other shows from the Aaj TV brand being shown at weekends.
DM Global is no longer on BARB but with a stronger line-up of shows, it won’t be a surprise if the channel returns to BARB reporting.
