Pakistan to auction DTH licences again

Pakistan’s media regulator, PEMRA, says the abandoned DTH auction (cancelled last December) will be reinstated later this year.

PEMRA says it will auction rights to three satellite TV slots.

PEMRA has been somewhat bogged down while its new chairman Absar Alam has conducted examinations into PEMRA’s own operating processes.

Last autumn, ahead of the cancelled auction, there were eight potential bidders for licences: Sardar Builders, Parus Media & Broadcast, Mastro Media Distribution, HB DTH, IQ Communications, Nayatel, Shahzad CGG and Sharif Feed Mills.

India’s Tata Group is said to be behind one of the potential bidders.
