Tune.pk Pays Tribute To APS Martyrs

Every Pakistani know what transpired on 16th December, 2014. The day started off as every other normal day. Kids went to school like they do every day. Little did the students of APS Peshawar know that they will be brutally martyred by the hands of terrorists; Terrorists who call themselves Muslims but do not know that the true essence of Islam lies in peace and tolerance. 144 lives were taken away. Innocent children and teachers were vandalized.
Now a year has passed. But the nation remembers. We cannot undo what has been done but we can pledge to eradicate terrorism from our country. And there is only one way of doing it. By making education common among the masses so that everyone can distinguish right from wrong.
So today we paid a tribute to the martyrs of APS. And the tribute highlights the fact that we are ‘NOT AFRAID’ and that we are still standing strong. We will not let the sacrifice of the APS martyrs go to waste. Remember that bravery is not having a gun In your hand, bravery is not giving up.

How to upload videos on the official PCFF channel on tune.pk

Pocket Cinema Film Festival promotes film making through the use of one’s cell phone camera. The event is being organized by iSmartFilms. The idea behind PCFF is to encourage aspiring filmmakers to share their work through basic film making, without having to equip themselves with expensive video equipment, training or field experience. In doing so, PCFF strives to maintain film submission and festival admission free of charge. This event will create a new breed of film makers and would give a chance to the local and regional talent to exhibit their skills.

Tune.pk has partnered with iSmartFilms and would provide them with a video sharing platform. Participants will directly upload their short films on PCFF’s official channel on tune.pk, and the content would later be seen and marked by the panelists. This venture would strengthen the current film making scenario and would encourage the regional and local talent to boost their skills.  Tune.pk aims to promote the event and would strive to make this process as smooth as possible.

Tune.pk celebrates its 3rd Anniversary whilst YouTube mourns three years of Ban in Pakistan

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).

We wanted to bring in the best for our users in terms of experience and visuals. So we have tweaked the website design to make it more user friendly. Some Amazing features are given below:

  • Our video player is faster & efficient
  • Design color has been changed from dark to light shadow
  • Notification panel; Every user will now get all important notifications
  • Mobile App up-gradation (Android & iOS)
  • White hat; Through this feature users can get benefits in form of cash/gift for reporting any issue or bug on site

Now, experience the new and improved tune.pk yourself. JEEVAY PAKISTAN.
