He remarked, “It will be just another humble contribution.” Since taking government office, Prime Minister Imran Khan and his team has been striving to promote technology in the country. As part of the initiative, the PM also launched Tele School Television Channel with an aim to impart education to children at their doorsteps especially during the lockdown situation. The channel benefits those children living in remote areas where there is no infrastructure for primary education. Similarly, Ministry for Science and Technology launched a mobile app to make it easier for citizens to get real-time information about the different phases of the moon. Recently, the Pakistan Electronic Media Regulatory Authority (PEMRA) announced a call for feedback on a consultation paper to license and regulate ‘web TV’ and Over-the-Top (OTT) content services. Through this, PEMRA seeks to bring OTT content services in specific, and web streaming services in general loosely defined as ‘web tv’.
