Samaa TV Live (Urdu)

Samaa TV (Urdu: سماء) is a Pakistani Urdu language news channel owned by Aleem Khan. It is the fourth-largest news channel in Pakistan with a market share of 7 percent.

The word ‘Samaa’ (“سما”) is Urdu for ‘sky’ or ‘heaven’ (ultimately derived from the Arabic “سماء”). It is broadcast simultaneously from five major cities of Pakistan – Karachi, Lahore, Islamabad, Quetta and Peshawar.

Samaa TV was founded in 2007 by Jaag Broadcasting Systems (Pvt) Limited.

In 2020, former provincial minister, Aleem Khan, acquired Samaa TV from Jaag Broadcasting Systems through his subsidiary real estate company, Park View Limited.

Samaa TV claims that it resists sensationalism in news presentation to the public and focuses on presenting news based on facts. Its company slogan is ‘Sansani Nahin, Sirf Khabrain’ (No Sensationalism, Only News).

In 2022, Samaa TV producer Athar Mateen was killed during a robbery in North Nazimabad Karachi.
