Pakistan DTH launch Satellite:

There are some leaked reports that the ChinaSAT11 @98E is the satellite selected for the first-ever DTH service in Pakistan.

ChinaSat 11 at 98.0°E Current TV Channels List:

Currently, the expected ChinaSat 11 @98E is broadcasting around 100+ channels mostly from Indonesia. The list includes

  • Galaxy Premium HD Indonesia

Odds canceling the first-ever Pakistan DTH launch Date:

Although many claims have been made that the first Pakistan DTH service to be launched in January 2019. But the ground realities are quite opposite to these claims. There is yet no chance of launching first ever Pakistani DTH service in a month’s time.

As there are no DTH Boxes manufacturing started yet in Pakistan. Nor the PEMRA looks serious to tackle the Cable network providers threat.

If these issues don’t get solved. The Launch date of Pakistani DTH Service may go even further.

Pakistani DTH Channel List :

The launch date could be different, but there is no doubt that Pakistan DTH Channel List would be any different from this.

We have talked about it before. But most probably we are seeing at some of the channels in the initial launch of the Shahzad Sky DTH service Pakistan are:

Still no word for whether these channels would be HD or SD quality. But since many of these channels mentioned above are already telecasting their content in HD and can be viewed using free Satellite receivers in Pakistan. Mostly on PakSAT and AsiaSat 105.

So Pakistani DTH launch seems to be in near future. But we can see some situations here that make it look far from getting the exact Launch Date of Pakistan DTH services in 2020.


  1. If someone capable to start operations first in Pakistan is Startimes, they are operating in 5+ countries already, they have enough resources and I believe they have enough stock of DTH boxes. But unfortunately, their official website for Pakistan startimes. pk does not does show when they are going to pull the trigger.

  2. So many disputes are going on, The new channels landing rights, Satellite selection issue etc. So I am not seeing DTH coming any soon to Pakistan.

  3. Bhai 3 saal sy suntay aa rhay hain. Ab b koi chance nai lag rha.
