Brothers Artan and Genci Dulaku entered the media market in the late 1990s when they founded together with Agim Buxheli the company Media Vizion and the TV station, Vizion Plus. Media Vizion ventured into broadcasting through Vizion Plus in 2000 and received a national broadcasting license in 2008, while in 2016 AMA granted the Broadcaster one the five national digital broadcasting licenses that were distributed to private media companies. Their wives were founders and owners of the digital pay-per-view platform Tring. In 2016 they sold 80% of shares to Sotiraq Toshi. The family owns also Living Magazine and TV station with the same name.
The three Dulaku brothers (Adrian, Artan, Genci) and their wives (Ridvana, Holta, Melina) have control through shares or presence in supervisory boards in a string of companies, which are identified as part of Edil al Group and Tring TV. According to the official websites of Edil al Group and Tring TV, the two entities include apart from the digital broadcaster Tring, the companies Albanian Satellite Communications, Botimet Living, Living magazine, the construction company Edil-Al-It, the concrete producer Alb Beton, the car dealership Albanian Motor Company, and the shopping malls: Galeria, Cristal and Concord. Edil-Al-It is one of the first companies founded by the brothers and is a subsidiary of INER LLC also owned by the Dullaku brothers. The most important companies apart from INER, the mother company of Edil-Al-It, are Media Vizion JSC, Tring JSC, Concord Investment and Albanian Satellite Communications. Their businesses are focused on construction and real estate, shopping malls, telecommunication and media.
The Dulaku brothers have been accused of holding close ties to the Socialist Party and its leader Edi Rama, during the time he was the mayor of Tirana. They allegedly have also the same relation with the current Socialist mayor of the capital. Because of their involvement in the construction business, the founders of Vizion Plus, have been perceived as being close to the municipality of Tirana, due to the role of the mayor in issuing building permits. The company and the brothers have dismissed accusations as a politically motivated smear campaign.
In 2016 the owners of Edil al Group were accused of censoring one of their investigative shows that was due to broadcast a critical story on the treatment of waste in the municipality of Tirana. The report accused mayor Erion Veliaj of abuse of office.
