Pakistan media regulator, PEMRA has ordered restoration of all Geo TV Network channels within 24 hours.

A press statement issued today said, “Suspension of any licensed TV channel is a violation of PEMRA rules, hence all the cable operators are informed to ensure transmission of channels licensed by the PEMRA on cable TV networks.”

“In this regard, today on April 2, 2018, PEMRA, while issuing notice of licenses suspention of Wateen Multimedia Lahore, and WorldCall Cable Lahore and Karachi, has directed them to restore all Geo TV channels on their actual positions within 24 hours,” the statement said further.

The Geo TV Network channels were suspended after it was falsely reported that PEMRA had ordered the suspension.
