Discover heroes who offer amazing solutions – and inspiration for a better life.

“We are excited to be joining hands with a partner like STARZPLAY to reach out to Pakistan’s diverse audience who are interested in both entertainment as well as informative, valuable content,” said Daniel Schulz, distribution manager for DW in Asia. “Our goal is to promote versatility and ensure that real-life stories on important topics like women empowerment, cultural diversity, environment, technology and sustainability are accessible to people across the globe.”

STARZPLAY is driven to promoting unique content

STARZPLAY loves to highlight locally produced content that Pakistani users are eager to watch. Considering the fact that online content consumption continues to grow strongly during the pandemic-induced lockdown amid restricted social activities, STARZPLAY feels committed to promoting not just international but local content as well.

Recently launched local content for STARZPLAY includes Khushkhabri Kay Baad, a hilarious but thought-provoking short film directed by Angeline Malik and Khel Tamasha, an original comedy series directed by Jawad Bashir. STARZPLAY is also working on another original series which will launch on Eidul Azha.

Arif BaigMohamed, chairman Cinepax Group, stated, “To bring diverse content to Pakistan, STARZPLAY has always rejoiced in joining hands with friends across the globe. We take pride in promoting local content and also familiarising locals with international content, enabling people to learn about different cultures and arts. STARZPLAY is working on a few exciting collaborations this year which will keep you glued to your STARZPLAY screens.”
