It may be recalled that the ‘Bol Network’ TV Channel was supposed to be launched in 2015 but the project got stalled after its parent Company ‘Exact’ was caught in a fake degree scam.

In August 2015, the Founder and Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of ARY Digital Network Salman Iqbal announced the acquisition of Bol Media Network.

The Bol TV Channel finally went on air in October 2016 after several months of delay due to legal proceedings.

Shoaib Shaikh, the original Owner of Bol Network, was convicted in 2018 along with 22 others in the fake degree case.
