Geo Television is a Pakistani television network founded by Mir Shakil-ur-Rehman in May 2002. Geo TV is owned by Independent Media Corporation, which also owns the Jang Group of Newspapers.

The channel began its test transmission in August 2002, whereas regular transmission began in October 2002. Geo is an Urdu word which translates to ‘live on’ in English.

Since its launch, Geo TV has tested the bounds of freedom of expression in Pakistan to unprecedented levels in the country’s history. This has also put Geo TV in numerous conflicts with the Pakistani government.

Geo Television Network started out with its flagship channel Geo TV, but has since launched several other channels which include the following: GEO Entertainment, GEO News, GEO Super and AAG TV.

Geo Network has released many films under the banner of Geo Films including Khuda Kay Liye, and Ramchand Pakistani.
