Dunyanews.tv is one of the media outlets being operated by the National Communications Services (Pvt) Ltd. It carries latest news about events and incidents at national and international relating to politics, crimes, technology, business, sports and entertainment. The platform also live streaming option and shares various videos from Dunya TV programmes.
Dunya maintains a centre-right approach to framing its news and current affairs, a policy that Dunya News management says mirrors the majority socio-political views of most Pakistanis, including the heartland of Pakistan’s populous Punjab province that houses over half of the country’s 207 million people. The channel’s owner, Mian Amer Mahmood, brings this centrist-conservative mix from his similarly right-of-centre politics.
