Umar posted this billboards picture here on 9th of this month, asking what it could be?. Today Geo News aired a little news about it and asking public opinion on streets what it could be. Now the interesting thing is, there have been many such billboards in past but never given such an importance to air it on news. This ticks me a little, and my doubts are more inclined towards something new from Jang/Geo group.

What say you?

    If Geo is airing this billboard it has to be a GEO marketing ploy.

    jus becaus they are airing it does not mean that they think its worth being news.

    Truth is that people would always pay more attention and give credence to reported material as compared to advertised material. Its because the general public still believes in the freedom of press world over. its the companys message against a third party news paper or tv journalist.

    Here is where public relations comes in. Stories are planted as news articles and features on tv and other media, simply to bolster its credibility and to generate public interest. Its done all the time in the financial world.

    I bet the billboard story is a planted one and has been paid for. If you notice, both jang and the news are carrying several boxes all over the papers for the same teaser.

    Its paid for. Relax.

    guess its a channel for the youth or something. not sure about the name though but yeah, geo was supposed to launch a new channel.
    huma? :p

    Yes geo was not only launching one but number of channels…there were job ads in the papers too month or two back.

    geo is actually planning on launching ten channels. They advertised this over three months ago.

    additionally, it does not “have ” to be geo . It could be any company with the right price or the right connections.

    Even you can go and ask them inserts about your event or brand if you have what it takes (specified above)
