BOL TV goes on air after 16-month delay BOL TV launched its transmission on Tuesday after a 16-month-long delay caused by a legal proceeding against the newly launched media group.

According to a tweet by BOL TV’s management, the channel’s transmission started on Tuesday at 6pm.

The Sindh High Court (SHC) on September 26 ordered restoration of BOL TV’s licence .

Earlier, the TV channel was set to be launched in 2015 but the plan was jettisoned after parent company Axact became embroiled in a fake degree scandal.

The Axact scandal surfaced in May last year when The New York Times (NYT) published a report that claimed the company sold fake diplomas and degrees online through hundreds of fictitious schools, making “tens of millions of dollars annually”.

Subsequently the offices of Axact were sealed, its CEO and key officials were arrested and a probe was launched on the basis of the allegations levelled by NYT.
