How to launch a tv channel


#1

Does any know how much it will cost to launch a tv channel in Pakistan. Im talking about the setup cost, the license and the monthly satellite cost.

Any idea?


#2

well i don't know but... i think different channels would have different costs like news or music or sports

Why not ask to PTA, they will gudie you. Any yes you should arrange millions of Rupees.

well, these days a rough estimate will suggest you Rs. 100 Crore. But again that depends on the genre. News channel may demand you more. Music channel will cost less, comparatively. Entertainment channel will cost more.... obviously acquiring good content. & Sports .... oh my God.. the count for money is never ending.

But if u re in a mood ... do it more professionally please. As we are always having some shitty channels.

Dont know abt license fees.
