You are watching Dunya News channel from Pakistan. The channel's category is Other and the speaking language is Urdu.

Dunya News is a 24 hours Urdu language news and current affairs television channel from Pakistan. It is governed and operated by the National Communication Services (NCS) Pvt. Ltd. Its head office is situated at Lahore, Pakistan. Dunya News was founded and is owned by Pakistani businessman and politician Mian Amer Mahmood, and is part of the larger Punjab Group of Colleges (PGC) – a group of universities, colleges and organizations. It is home to numerous, news-centric television shows, like Dunya Kamran Khan Kay Sath, On The Front as well as satirical infotainment shows like Hasb-e-Haal.

The channel has an online stream available on its website. It is one of the most-watched television news channels in Pakistan.

Dunya News began transmission in 2008. The channel is known for a center-right news policy orientation which mirrors the majority of socio-political-economic views of the Pakistani people. However at the same time the channel is known for an unbiased approach towards news, and (unlike some competitors) has stayed away from serious controversy. Dunya News is known for quality programming, and relies upon veritable heavy-weights of Pakistani media to settle its position as a reputable media outlet.

Dunya News is home to Pakistan's two most popular satirical news programs, Hasb-e-Haal, and Mazaaq Raat. Hasb-e-Haal has been a ratings hit for the channel, with the deft, often bitingly subtle comedy of actor Sohail Ahmed resonating with a large audience. Mazaaq Raat consists of an ensemble cast and is hosted by Vasay Chaudhry. It is shot in front of a live studio audience.

As of August 2015, it is home to the show Dunya Kamran Khan Kay Sath, hosted by the veteran journalist Kamran Khan (currently President and Editor-in-Chief of Dunya Media Group).
