The complete launch of the channel accorded with the result of the Supreme Court case which cleared the Chief Justice Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry, who had been deferred by General Musharraf. The channel was initially housed in Haroon House, the head-office of PHPL, but later moved to its current premises in West Wharf, Karachi. The channel has an online stream available on its website for foreign viewing. The founder of Pakistan, Quaid-e-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah launched the Dawn newspaper in the 1940s – it is the oldest English language newspaper in Pakistan. Dawn News was launched as Pakistan’s first English news and current affairs channel and promises to “provide its viewers with a medium that is responsible, credible and balanced.” The channel has bureau in Karachi, Lahore, Islamabad, Quetta and Peshawar, with studio facilities in Karachi, Lahore and Islamabad. Equipped with state-of-the-art technology, including digital satellite news gathering (DSNG) capability and broadband global area networks (BGANs), the channel has the volume to provide live transmission from remote areas via satellite, thus enabling comprehensive and prompt news coverage from across the country. Keeping in view the public demand, Dawn News had decided to launch a separate Urdu news channel. But before launching the separate channel, it had started a three-hour Urdu transmission within its English channel’s airtime, which was later increased to 12 hours. The channel formally put an end to its English language programming on 15 May 2010. Besides, Dawn News has enclosed major events including Lal Masjid, Islamabad operation, lawyers’ movement, military operations in tribal areas and Pakistani general election, 2008. Most of the time, the channel beat its rivals despite limited resources. Dawn News transmission is watched in all urban areas of Pakistan. It also has admittance to the rural population, wherever the cable reaches. Dawn News is in agreement with several satellite TV channels, which include BBC World News, Sky News, ABC News and Aljazeera and can be watched in the US, Europe, Middle East and Africa.
