Top 10 News Channels of Pakistan
Gallup TV Ratings Service (the only National TV Ratings Service) released a report on most popular News Channels. The report is compiled on the basis of the Gallup TV Ratings Services, the only National TV Ratings available for Pakistan.
According to the report Geo News had an average reach of around 7 million Cable and Satellite Viewers in the month of May. Second in line was PTV News (by a huge margin!) with only 1.5 million viewers, followed by Express, ARY and AAJ News TV Channels.
The channel list below provides list of other top ten news channels. Please note that the figures released are not counting the viewership of Terrestrial TV Viewers. These terrestrial TV viewers still occupy a majority of TV viewers in the country. Similarly the figures released are for Top News Channels only, and do not include, for example, entertainment channels, music channels, etc.
