On 17th September 2012, YouTube was banned from Pakistan on Grounds of Blasphemy. While that was happening, the team of tune.pk was ready to launch their product in the market. The premise was to provide the users with a video sharing platform that is purely Pakistani. As of now Tune.pk is one of the biggest video sharing website not only in Pakistan but also in South-Asia region and is serving millions of videos daily all around the world.Tune.pk is a video sharing website where users can upload, watch and share videos. Unregistered users can watch, share and even comment on any video. However registration is required for uploading and rating a video. Tune.pk is available on all digital means including iOS, Windows and Android
Tune.pk was started off as a team of two; Jahanzeb Hassan & Arslan Hassan in a small room of their own house. With continuous hard work and dedication they were able to create something that is being used by the entire Pakistani market as of today.
As it is faced by every startup, Tune.pk also faced a lot of problems after its launch. When it was created, the main focus was to promote music which later was converted to promoting videos. On its pilot phase tune.pk was using 3rd Party Software with a customized style. In October 2007, Tune.pk was taken down by hosting stating it is using 3rd party script illegally. This prompted the team to create something that would solely be their own. And after working tirelessly for a long time, tune.pk was able to strike back in 2012, on the same day that YouTube was facing an existential crisis in Pakistan.
Even though our country as a whole was mourning YouTube being banned and there was a lot of backlash, Tune.pk stepped up and provided a solution to the problem that was being faced by the Pakistani market at that time. YouTube is our competitor but we don’t support the ban on them. We hope that the ban gets lifted soon so that Tune.pk competes with YouTube in every way possible and prove to everyone that we can excel the market leader in terms of quality and experience.
We have always believed in a patriotic approach, that’s the exact reason why Tune.pk has its heart and all its operations set in Pakistan. Tune.pk has always strived to enhance user experience, which is why we are revamping our website design on our 3rd anniversary this year (17th September).
