ISLAMABAD: In a bid to curb the menace of illegal Indian direct-to-home (DTH) decoders proliferating in the country, Pakistan Electronic Media Regulatory Authority (PEMRA) on Wednesday held ceremony to destroy more than 500 illegal Indian DTH decoders confiscated by the Regional Office Islamabad during crackdowns against Cable TV operators of Rawalpindi, Chakwal, Jehlum and Attock.

The ceremony was held at PEMRA Head Office in which Council of Complaints Chairperson Shamim Humayun was also present. Last month, PEMRA enforcement teams have confiscated about 2,500 illegal DTH decoders across the country.

Briefing the media, PEMRA Licencing Director General Wakeel Khan Director General told that the crackdown has been launched against cable TV operators providing cable TV services by using signal of illegal Indian DTH in violation of PEMRA laws. According to an estimate, more than two million illegal Indian DTH decoders of Dish TV, TATA SKY, Airtel, VideoCon, SunBig, Reliance etc, have been smuggled into Pakistan which is illegally laundering money worth US$ 200 million per annum outside Pakistan putting a colossal loss to national economy.

These illegal DTH decoders are also a source of distribution of illegal and unlicenced channels in Pakistan in violation of PEMRA laws. He said that availability of illegal DTH decoders is also a potential threat to future investors in Pakistan. He said that PEMRA has already initiated process for award of Pakistani DTH by advertising in print media. The bidding for the award of three DTH licences would be conducted on December 7.

It may be mentioned that DTH is a digital satellite distribution platform for delivery of television channels directly to viewers/end users without the need for any intermediary. The service is state-of-the-art in broadcasting and distribution technologies and it has a number of advantages including enhanced channel carrying capacity, better quality of picture and sound, value added services such EPG (electronic programme guide), parental control, VOD (video on demand), Push, VoD, PVR (personal video recorder), time scheduling etc.

Initiation of this digital medium would help in creating jobs for thousands of people, besides injecting investment of billions of rupees in the country's economy. PEMRA also foresee licencing of more local and foreign TV channels.

Drugs & p**n Is Health & Mindset Related Issue So Government Have Rights To Control It For PPL Health... Its Not Related To Entertainment... Its a habbit like smoking...

Alcohol ? If u consume with limit it gives healthy life... If u consume more it destroys ur all health like slow poison... This is also not related to entertainment... Its a bad habit like smoking...

Only teenage ppl thinks these all for entertainment coz it entertain them they thinks they are grown ppl @mindset... Its funny...

Entertainment Vs Bad Habit Both are different...

Entertainment = Thrills

Bad Habbit = Kills...
