  • 84.42 kbps streaming rate, hahaha nice joke by zong;)
    Zong kabhi 20kbs se ziyada nahi chalta :D

  • The idea is great but very expensive. If we want to use this service we need at-least 3G phone so it should be cut short…

  • It say unable to connect by clicking any channel link. And come on zong improve your pathetic edge service. It only gives 3-5 kbps.

  • this link is not opening i call 2 times at service center at the middle of the conversation they disconnect the call i am using sonyericsson c903 and u guys tell me this links works with your phones or not

  • whats wrong link not opening i try many browser( opera deafult, uc, bolt, ovi, opera 6,) but every time fail

  • 1. Works only on zong number.
    2. Works in only default browser.
    3. You need handset with ability of streaming. It opens in real player.

    Its free until 6th april. I hope its cheap service becuz we have to pay for internet too. We have to opt 4g or unlimeted package for this. Its 400 and 999 rs respectively.

    Cable is for 150-250. Much cheap than the package for internet.

  • I’ve checked it. Last night it was not working for me but now the site is opening, remember you have to open the site in Built-in browser of your mobile, not in Opera Mini or any other. I watched Geo News, Express News, HBO. Playing HBO for 10 mins caused me 5 MB data and so expected 1hr is equal to ~30 MB, not bad. The quality is good, worth watching and better than Mobilink Live Tv. If you are unable to open it than chances are that you may have got IP of nayatel, try connecting again. Here is the List

    AAG
    Cartoon Network
    Dawn News
    Dunya
    Express 24-7
    Express News
    GEO Entertainment
    GEO News

    • Yes its working fine and perfect, but now I think Geo Group want extra charges from Zong, so Zong removed Geo Group channel from list added some extra news and entertainment channel in new list.

  • Working awesome on my 3120c. Really high quality and no buffering. I doubt i’ll use it after the extra charges will be applied. Their are veriety of websites providing the same service for free. I am agree with above comments 3g will make it even better to watch. Sound quality is not that good very low sound btw.

  • Well, I wz ignorant of this 0’s0Me srvce bt tday I jst rcvd a msg frm Zong abt this srvce n I wz shockd a while that Am I really usin Zong or Mobilink :-p
    Anyway, I checkd it a while ago n it roX. Speed just got better even than Telenor n Warid. I jst clickd the link n watch mY fav. ChaNNeLs without intervals of bufferings… It wz nt xpectd, 1000 times better than Mobilink’s Live TV in Pic. Quality n sound as well. Foremost its cheap (Rs. 15/hr – hourly intrnt pkg).

    But it still makes me CONFUSE, it is clearly mention on Zong’s website that its a test run and available till 6th of April 2011. Wht hapnd aftt that? Will they charge xtra? Will they make monthly or daily deductions? :-O

  • nt wrkng on Gprs…i m using nokia n8 bt failed to change streaming bytes from 40.2 to 84.42…
    Is there anothr method to chnge bitrate settings…??

  • Working fine on 5800 XM. Any1 using symbian use default browser. also in settings> connectivity>Destinations select zong internet access point.

  • U can watch it now on 2 different types of streams one is of low bit rate and the other one is of high bit rate, Guys just try it, charges are not that high, it’s like Rs 150 for the whole month subscription and Rs 10 for daily subscription other than the GPRS charges right now!

    Here is the link
    (just type it on ur mobile browser)

    http://www.pockettv.zong.com.pk

    U’ll definitely enjoy it when u r lucky, means if u get connected instantly :)
    The thing is sometimes u can’t get enough bandwidth for the stream to play the video in a congested area where there is high data package consumption, so what u actually get is the audio only first and after a while u get video whenever u gets the required bandwidth for the streaming.
    That’s why there could be good or bad experience depending on ur location.

  • i used zong pocket TV service. TV to chalta ha but daily charges separately pay karne parrte hein or at the time of using u will connect to net where gprs charges b kafi zaida heien. but this is best in any emergency.
