    Regarding the broadcasting in UK.

    Sky or some other would've been a better option there.

    Pakistani channels involved anywhere would ruin the visual experience esp. where PTV is associated. Don't know about Prime telecast but know its close to PTV. Pretty sure the technicians would suck in broadcasting there also.

    Technicians who are on duty for being friend of some higher up instead of having any vision for improving viewing experience or usage of technology to enhance TV content.

    I think UK viewers should interact with PCB to either force these PTV affiliates to introduce some up to date services[atleast improve telecast] or watch it on internet streams and boycott the local channels there.

    This pitiful list of broadcasters kinda betrays the fact that the PSL is still very much a second rate domestic cricket tournament. I'm sure it will change if they keep attracting high quality internationals such as Hales and Roy. One thing they do need is to shift it from February to October when the international calendar doesn't clash quite as much.

    Sony max in the uk would’ve been a great option.

    They covered the recent pak vs sl series and they were great. Miles better than ptv.

    I watched it on Prime Tv last year, it was decent for an Asian channel and from what I can recall there were less adverts than PTV.

    We need HD though.

    I live in UAE and had trouble watching PSL last season. PTV sports and Geo are filled with ads with a little bit of cricket in it. Ten sports wasn't far off too. Cricketgateway shows I am in a Geo restricted country. OSN cricket was the option but that will be costly for me. How can I watch on cricketgateway then? Will Ten Cricket broadcasting it?

    Exactly what I was considering until I saw the updated list of Broadcasters and didn't see OSN cricket in it,. This service can be useful as it costs only around 50dhs monthly which is very affordable. Just want to confirm whether the quality is HD and the service doesn't lag in high stake matches, just like when the CT final was played and no website could provide glitch free coverage. It was buffering and lagging a lot. Do you have any idea about it?

    Hum Masala go all out to promote PSL 2018 in UK

    Hum TV Network is leaving stone unturned to promote cricket property, Pakistan Super League 2018, which will air from next week on Hum Masala UK/Europe.

    This is the first time the broadcaster will air the tournament, along with Prime TV.

    As well as cross promotions on Hum TV and Hum Masala, the broadcaster is also heavily promoting the series on London radio stations and online via BizAsiaLive.com. The campaign has been conceptualised with UK based Alliance Advertising & Marketing agency.

    PSL 2018, now in its third year, will commence on Thursday 22nd February, with live coverage on Hum Masala and highlights on Hum TV.

    The quality is more than decent not sure if its fully HD. The streams are stable, ive been using it for a while. The cricket channel plays adverts of showing PSL so im sure OSN will be showing it.

    lol Australian Tv is a joke! They aren't even showing most of the matches of the current trans-Tasman series in which Australia is taking part. No way they'd ever show PSL, not even on Foxtel.

    There will never be any HD coverage of PSL it seems.

    Third season is about to start and like the previous 2 seasons, there is no emphasis on TV coverage quality especially for international viewers who are more in tune to be watching HD quality most of the times and know of the difference between STD and UHD and HD.

    Sethi and PCB may aswell been pocketing all that money that they should be looking to invest in quality international coverage.

    Get ready for more substandard graphics, picture quality and every 2 mins ads breaking in the over and missing out on 1-2 balls every over.

    OSN in UAE and middle East shows it in HD. and to be fair with them, even in SD the coverage looks splendid. The coverage quality has never been a problem with PSL, among the very best. Its how the channels chose to show their ads etc. otherwise the coverage is always top notch

    The middle east does not equate to the rest of the world. I don't know how you can compare the quality of it being the top notch ones from what is shown mostly on the channels. The quality and graphics do need an upgrade as well as the rest of the things they show and use to do so.

    In my OP, I have explained in detail as to what I think of all of this and it is quite simple really.

    This is a food channel right? Would've been much better if it was on the normal HUM TV as Virgin subscribers could get access.

    Agreed. My dad had to buy a sky box cos we are Virgin subscribers and it's the only way for him to watch it. I am at University so will not be watching the PSL at all but if it was on virgin I could watch on TV anywhere being a virgin subscriber. Oh well

    PSL coverage definitely has a lot of issues but those rickshaw graphics will never get old
