NTM produced plays, stage and music shows. Young actors including Sania Saeed, Atiqa Odho, Humayoon Saeed, Nadia Khan, Fakhr-e-Alam, and Khalid Anum became comperes and announcers. NTM also broadcast drama serials including Kashkol, Chand Grihan, Dasht and Nadan Nadia.

In 1990, STN's broadcasting hours from 7:00PM to 11:00PM daily and 6:00PM to 11:00PM on Saturdays and Sundays were purchased by NTM. NTM's viewership subsequently increased and the company commenced broadcasting during mornings. STN was also able to extend it's coverage countrywide, beyond Karachi, Lahore and Islamabad.

NTM was closed down in 1999 as a result of financial difficulties.
