PTCL has become the first telecommunication operator in Pakistan to ink a collaboration agreement with Netflix for the Pakistan market. Under the agreement, Netflix in partnership with PTCL will penetrate its services in Pakistan. In addition, both PTCL and Netflix will look to utilize their individual resources for mutual benefit besides maximizing and augmenting the viewing experience of the public.
The contract between the two companies will benefit the users in Pakistan at large. It will also serve as a way forward to provide digital content in the country with the streaming of Netflix. It is worth mentioning that PTCL will promote and encourage original firsthand Netflix content in Pakistan.
