GEO TV blocked in some areas

watch-geo-tv-live1So Mr. Nawaz was right. Musharraf ki rooh shayd waqai mai Zardari mai ghus gai hai (and here) although he was enough himself). I have just been informed by few friends from different areas that GEO is blocked on their side and seems like we may see a repetition of 2007 when the dictator turned it into hell. We were already saying that Feb 17 elections will result in more corrupt gov. since how can be a child legal when the marriage is illegal (NRO).

Its pathetic that our governments never learn from history. And this will just be the beginning I guess. Media is under threat as earlier it was mentioned in recent newspapers. After loosing media battle at an early stage and since GHQ is in full support to the civilian dictator, I hope that Zardari continue to make mistakes like these so his exit come as fast as his spiritual mentor came.

    I am getting all news channels except GEO, but no reports of anything much out of the ordinary on any of them. I wonder why Zardari would provoke the media by shutting down Geo.

    Well it was bound to happen !

    Although i hate the present PPP setup !

    But i support their blocking of GEO,
    Media is supposed to show news and itself be neutral, but during last 5-6 days, there has been numerous telecast from GEO itself supporting the Long March!

    So it was not doing its job correctly !

    If you guys are not getting geo it’s ok …. " Bar bar apnay bahiyoo ko apnay hee bahiyoo say peeatha deakhana acchi baat hay aap logo nay last year hee tu deakha tha … :)

    kiy adraama hai..all channels working fine here.

    salay cable walay ko payemnt nai karo gay tu chanel tu band laray ga na

  7. MB (kar_munib) on March 14th, 2009 @ 11:54 am

    GEO is saying that their channel is thrown at tail end and they are right. In some cases if you search it at end you will get its transmission , if its not blocked completely that is

  8. بستنی (wasiq) on March 14th, 2009 @ 2:55 pm

    actually I keep the news channels at the tails end that way its easy to click click down from zero(0)<
    oh no…I just found out they removed the fashion tv..this is war…

  9. fas4u on March 14th, 2009 @ 8:12 pm

    Geo should be banned forever. They think that they can change any government by spreading rumors.

    Recently, they are provoking government servants and police to disobey the government orders.

    Geo has clear agenda of supporting Nawaz Sharif and Punjabies, so they get benefit when ever Nawaz comes to power (which I hope he will not)

    well done Zardari.

  10. Adnan Siddiqi (adnansiddiqi) on March 14th, 2009 @ 10:51 pm

    I personally don’t like GEO but that’s with me only and should not be an excuse to ban it while it could be a favorite channels of others.

    but..why GEO is being so cheap(though it’s since beginning). They have been running a clip of Farooq.H.Nayek and playing the song "Nayek nahi Khal Nayek houn mey" in background. LOL

  11. human01 on March 14th, 2009 @ 11:03 pm

    I don’t trust any of them…all are biased and have hidden agendas……The morons who blame Mushi of being dictator….should realize that he was the one gave these Baboons (Media) Naryal (Freedom)to play…… I guess that was the biggest mistake he did….he got it all wrong….Ulimate Jahil awam…free irresponsible media….it’s a dynamite combination.

  12. human01 on March 14th, 2009 @ 11:16 pm

    BTW who gives a $$$k if GEO is banned….to hell with them any ways….reminds me a newspaper "Evening Special"….Geo is the same caliber channel….always tend to fuel the fire….make situation more unstable….they are like Pakistani Fox News working against Pakistan….pretty sick. As its said….with freedom comes responsibility…… Responsibility-every body can see that….Loyalty- yet to be seen.

  13. karachi4eva on March 15th, 2009 @ 4:39 am

  18. mohsin on March 15th, 2009 @ 11:19 am

    While I don’t know the politics about Geo as I am not in Pakistan and don’t watch it, I think the people who are calling for its ban should pull themselves out of the 18th century. Freedom of speech means that they should allowed to say what ever they want ESPECIALLY if you don’t like it. In my opinion it is people like you, who cannot tolerate decent, that are holding Pakistan in its perpetual state of backwardness. Lets have real freedom of speech and if you don’t like what Geo is saying STOP WATCHING IT simple as that.

  19. بستنی (wasiq) on March 15th, 2009 @ 12:00 pm

    iam sorry but my comments quota is finished word press waley bahut sharminada kartey hai…….power bhi off honney wali hai…aur aik online game virus has been deteted….aaj match bhi hai…aur washing bhi….so miltay hain break kay baad…kahein jaieyeah ga nahein….ab halwa puri toh katam ho gaie ho gi…

  20. human01 on March 15th, 2009 @ 10:20 pm

    Mohsin, since u are not in Pakistan & don’t know what Geo is about, better don’t judge any one as well. Because you don’t have a clue what you are talking about. And so far the lecture on freedom of speech is concerned; it’s a very thin line between freedom of speech and a politically motivated, biased propaganda. In societies where people are educated enough to understand & realize the difference, this freedom might work. But in our case, it’s a recipe for disaster. It promotes instability and chaos which we can’t afford this time. The whole system is on the brinks of collapse. Every thing is on pause mode, every morning when people woke-up they expect another Marshal Law or worst. What do you think, these Sharif crooks and his highness CJ clown would change the status quo in this country…..we’ve seen’em all, several times. They are no different then the current vultures….. My friend, embrace the ground realities, we are already in deep shit, cant afford more.

  21. بستنی (wasiq) on March 16th, 2009 @ 12:23 am

    chaloo jee match khatam hoie giya…ab bolo ….yeah channel re shuffle karney sey cable waley ka kya faida hota hai….
    2.ptcl smart kaisa chal raha hai….?aur total kharcha kitna hai..?

  22. mohsin on March 16th, 2009 @ 4:03 am


    While I appreciate what you said it appears to me that Geo is holding the governments feet to the fire, which is the job of the media. Again I don’t know if they are pro Sharif or not but it appears to me that they are doing a good job exposing Mr. 10%, considering how much some people want them shut down. If the government is corrupt (which it is) then you will have instability and violence, you cannot blame it all on a station which you may not like. Also if the station breaks a law then they should pay for it but no one should have the right to shut them down just because they don’t like what they are saying. we can only get to the future through openness and discourse not by force.

    and now being in managemtn my diet is severly restricted… day it wud be reduced to 1-2 dishes in menue ( allah reham)….

  38. neena on March 27th, 2009 @ 5:30 am

    MB, you are always critical about Geo blocking but Geo TV is being way irresponsible in its lot of programs. BTW who is this clown and why I haven’t seen any rant about him by you or Teeth Maestro (two most vocal anti government KMB bloggers). You guys need to do more to be considered neutral since not voicing against these ‘Analysts" just show you support them.

    While we are it who really owns Geo TV since I don’t like it when people label it as Punjabi Conservative voice.
