In my house all the illegal Indian channels (Star Plus, Sony TV, Colors TV) are blocked and according to my cable operator PEMRA ( Pakistan Electronic Media Regularity Authority) has directed strictly to all the cable operators that all the illegal channels (those who are not paying the PEMRA fees) must not be aired. It is very good decision and all the cable operators must follow the directions of PEMRA.
If any Indian channel or any other foreign channels pay the fees of PEMRA than they can be aired but censor board must examine their content and then allow these channels.
Many foreign channels are not giving quality programs and their shows are aginst our culture and mislead our young generation. It is hoped that all the channels are properly scrutinise before giving them permission to be aired.
