PTV to become fully HD in August 2021!
The development comes on Monday as the National Assembly (NA) approved three demands for grants pertaining to the Ministry of Information and Broadcasting for the next fiscal year including making the transmission of state-run PTV fully high-definition (HD).
Addressing the floor of the Parliament, Minister for Information and Broadcasting Fawad Chaudhry said that the Ministry of Information will serve the purpose of promoting the narrative of Pakistan.
He added that the previous governments used the ministry as their spokesperson but the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) is elevating it as the spokesperson of the state.
The minister announced that state-run PTV will also become fully HD in the first week of August.
He further added that the Associated Press of Pakistan (APP) will be transformed into a digital media news agency on the pattern of Agence France-Presse (AFP) and Reuters.
Federal Minister also announced that Radio Pakistan will fully become digitalized and the new programming will be visible in August.
