ETN was very professional when we used them for the uplink of Foreign Minister Khar's interview. They arrived 2 hours before the interview to set up. They had sufficient equipment and crew, and there was no problem linking up with NY. I would use them again for future shoots in Islamabad; there is a dearth of providers in this city who are as reliable as they proved to be in this instance.

I've had a professional relationship with ETN for the past 7 years of my career and that's while working for two major broadcasters, I have to say that they employ the friendliest bunch of professionals and are always eager to help but most importantly in the fast paced world of on the minute news, ETN staff are extremely flexible when it comes to last minute changes.

When the subject is to have "satellite transmissions" from Karachi, Lahore, Islamabad and Peshawar in Pakistan: the name "ETN" shines at the top of the best and most reliable options for having excellent services, with the best quality.

We have always used ETN for their transmission services from Pakistan. Having worked with ETN during my days at WTN, there is a long history between ETN and us. We have even used Sib Kaifee on specialist assignments as an uplinks engineer in places such as Saudi Arabia, for the quality of his work, and for his ability to work with clients professionally and with a great attitude.

I had the pleasure of working with ETN during my time at the BBC and at all times found them to be both highly proficient and professional in their approach to a number of services provided. From the provision of SNG uplink though to technical installations and training, ETN is an outfit, which can be relied on to deliver.

The BBC has been working in cooperation with Eastern television News for many  decades in Pakistan.  ETN have proven to have an excellent track record for the reliability of their hardware and spare contingency, qualified and fit for purpose resources trained on all major workflows related to TV up linking, production and online /offline post production works.

During numerous crisis stories the BBC was reliant of locally provided SNG services as well as studio based production, which ETN provided with the utmost professionalism.  ETN were also responsible for all aspects of media training to the local BBC and non BBC staff.

BBC and ETN’s co-operation was further strengthened when ETN were chosen as the BBC’s sole provider for SNG and resource production provider covering Afghanistan.  ETN were consistent and performed their duties professionally in an extremely hostile environment.
