Wateen Telecom has make a web portal that is filled with multiple segments ranging from news section to blogs and from games to movies.
It is indeed a good effort to bring forward the local content and that too backed by such a large ISP. This can probably serve as an example for the rest of companies to deploy their portals where users can share content from our local industry.
However, there is a problem that we wanted to point out. Just like PTCL’s entertainment portal (which is exclusively available for only PTCL broadband users), Wateen has started uploading full length movies – on third parties’ servers – and which are available for everyone to watch them online for free.
Now we are not sure if they have got redistribution license for these movies or not. Wateen is not only uploading these full length (apparently pirated) videos from admin’s account but they are also advertising it through their official twitter account.
Here is the link for Video Portal on Wateen’s website: http://videos.wateen.com/index.php
