All Pakistani data customers will now have access to the new Over-The-Top (OTT) platform SHOQ from PTCL, a division of e& (formerly known as Etisalat Group). SHOQ offers a superior and immersive viewing experience. The new platform was introduced at a special event in Karachi that was attended by well-known people, members of the media, and business titans.
Blockbuster films, seasons from well-known Hollywood studios including Warner Bros., Paramount, and 20th Century FOX, as well as local and international TV channels, Pakistani movies, and original material, are all available on SHOQ. According to PTCL’s objective of enabling digital transformation for everyone, the platform is open to all users.
Through its collaboration with evision, the media and entertainment business of e& life, SHOQ is bridging the gap in access to high-quality content at reasonable pricing in Pakistan. Through this partnership, media and entertainment material will be accessible to PTCL and other data users.
President and Group CEO of PTCL & Ufone, Hatem Bamatraf, stated, “We are excited to debut Pakistan’s biggest OTT platform, which will offer all data customers access to top-notch entertainment and news content. Pakistan needed a top-notch local OTT service that offered inexpensive entertainment that was catered to regional tastes and preferences in light of the country’s growing internet penetration. SHOQ has everything it takes to be the best entertainment option in the nation.”
The Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) streaming software SHOQ uses TV dongles from PTCL and is subscription-based. As long as they have internet connectivity and a digital device, such as a smartphone, tablet, laptop, or Android Smart TV, users can access the multi-screen services from anywhere, at any time. The platform supports simultaneous registration of up to 5 devices and 2 sessions.
SHOQ is accessible to all Pakistani data customers in two types, Lite & Premium, at cheap daily, weekly, and monthly subscriptions with costs starting at Rs. 8 per day. For the best and most seamless streaming experience, data users can visit www.shoq.com.pk and sign up for the service, or they can download the SHOQ App from Google Play and the Apple Store.
With a high-quality local OTT service that is catered to regional tastes and preferences, SHOQ is positioned to be the ideal entertainment solution for all data users in Pakistan. PTCL and its partners continue to support the growth of Pakistan’s digital future and are certain that this new service will be very beneficial to the people of Pakistan.
With this launch, PTCL makes significant progress toward bridging the gap in Pakistan’s affordability of access to high-quality content. The Pakistani entertainment market is about to undergo a revolution thanks to SHOQ, which will open up countless options for everyone.
