The channel states that Punjab has always been a big market for automobiles, be it the passenger or luxury cars, and there is a great passion for automobiles amongst consumers there. Big Wheels is a half-hour show about automotive shenanigans and will be aired at 8 pm every Sunday.

Spark Da Star will see a Punjabi celebrity sharing his/her favourite music countdown list each week. The show will be aired at 8 pm every Saturday. Babies Unlimited, on the other hand, is a Pakistani stage comedy play and will be aired at 9 pm on Sundays.

The shows will be marketed on all the in-house platforms of the network, including Big FM and other television channels. The properties will also be promoted on digital and print media.
