TRT Introduces YouTube Channel for Pakistanis

Wednesday, June 24th: Turkish Radio and Television Corporation (TRT), a Turkish state-run broadcaster, has launched a YouTube channel exclusively for Pakistani fans, in view of the huge popularity of its urban drama Ertugrul Ghazi in Pakistan.

Under a special agreement between TRT and Pakistan Television (PTV), Ertugrul Ghazi was dubbed in Urdu on the instructions of Prime Minister Imran Khan and aired on state TV (PTV) from the first of Ramadan. The drama which is being aired has made many records in Pakistan, of which it has become the most watched drama on YouTube.
