I'm Indian and i watch Pak TV channels! haha but I guess that's cuz i live in Canada..and they're available here.. Embarrassed When my mom was younger, she said tha only good channels available in Punjab were Pakistani ones, so everyone watched them..but now they're not even available anymore! I guess it's cuz people think with so many Indian channels, no one would want to watch Pak ones..but that's NOT true, because Pak dramas are SOOOO different from Indian ones! I think if Pak drama channels like ARY were made available in some parts of India, they would be quite popular! Because Pak dramas, for the most part are really good..there would definetely be a market for them b/c they'd fill that market niche that heavy, drawn-out and dramatic Indian dramas don't really fill anymore.. Wink Like when my relatives visit fr/ India, they watch Pak dramas at my house and keep praising them and stuff, for being short and realistic and what-not..and they agree that if Pak channels were made available, they would definetely order them! And I'm sure all the Urdu-speaking Indians who have difficulty understanding Hindi-laden dramas would welcome them, as well! LOL

Like UK and USA, A variety of shows first made in the US are available here for us to watch but any UK version thats a hit is remade in America with their OWN cast.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_British_TV_shows_remade _for_the_American_market
It is far more common for a successful British show to be remade for an American audience since U.S. citizens are generally less likely to be acquainted with British accents, media, and culture than vice versa.

Our accents aren't that difficult to understand.
Some US shows were remade for British market but those were mainly game shows or reality shows.

Television came to India in the 80s and I grew up in the 80s. In my view Doordarshan had the best dramas ever and I won't agree with anyone who says otherwise. Now I hope Doordarshan was available in Punjab. I respect your mother's views though.Tongue

Doordarshan was available in Punjab since atleast I was able to understand the world and there was no pakistani channelLOLTongue and never heard frm the elder ppl abt paki channelsTongue

lol..well Amritsar is really close to the Indo-Pak border, so it makes sense for there to have been Pak channels there, atleast when my mom lived there.Embarrassed maybe where ur relatives lived they didn't have Pak channels? or if they did, maybe they just weren't interested in the Pak dramaz..Wink
