In 2014, Mobilink won a 10Mhz block for the 3rd generation spectrum and launched the largest 3G network in Pakistan.

As a result of extensive market research, SPB TV mobile TV solution was chosen as a foundation of the new service.
SPB TV's comprehensive solution was swiftly deployed into Mobilink’s network and allowed for a rapid launch of a mobile TV service within one week. The integrated solution for Mobilink TV includes high-quality, multi-rate encoding and streaming platform, content management system, authentication and conditional access system, client software. SPB TV solution’s modular structure makes the service extendable to support Mobilink’s fast-growing subscriber base.
Powered by the SPB TV platform and launched in association with Nizara Communications, a brand new, value-added service has become a one stop shop for watching Pakistan's most popular satellite TV channels. Mobilink TV subscribers can now enjoy a convenient and multifunctional mobile application that lets them watch TV channels online on their Android, iOS and Windows Phone mobile devices.
