"Dubai Media City (DMC) announced today that GEO News Channel, one of the eight channels operating under the banner of International Media Corporation FZ LLC, will resume its transmission from the DMC at the midnight, following fruitful talks held between the DMC management and the channel officials. Dr. Amina Al Rustamani, Executive Director of Media at Dubai Technology and Media Free Zone said that she was proud of the partnership between the DMC and the International Media Corporation. 'We are glad to see GEO News Channel back on air from the DMC which is committed to growing its partners' businesses, within the framework of full respect to UAE's domestic and foreign policies,' she added."

"Imran Mir, Station Head of Geo Television Network in Dubai, said the top management of Geo is in touch with the DMC, which has put in place some new conditions before allowing them to resume broadcasting."
