Wish for a Dish

With a media black-out in place, the news hungry citizens of Lahore are also indulging in a craze for satellite receivers to get the latest happenings on Pakistani satellite TV channels.

Prices for these ‘dishes’ are on the rise in Lahore and Karachi where you can buy a Rs.5,000 system now for Rs.8,000 to Rs.11,000!

The world might have progressed in technology, but what’s ‘in’ in today’s Pakistan is reliving the bygone era of Satellite Dish Antennas…
