ISLAMABAD - The Council of Complaints of PEMRA has recommended a fine of Rs100,000 on Value TV for operating illegally as Channel 24 and deviating from approved programming mix.
A press release of Pakistan Electronic Media Regulatory Authority said Value TV was initially a real-estate/property channel but later changed its name and content without approval. The Council's Islamabad chapter said Value TV had not responded to repeated notices to revert the channel to its original name and content. It therefore constitutes willful violation on part of the channel.
The release said the channel could face cancellation of its license if it did not comply and pay fine within 30 days.
