PTCL Offers Triple Play Smart TV Bundled Offer

smart_pbPTCL has introduced a new bundle package that includes:

Introduction of Smart Pack is PTCL’s effort to aware people to opt for Smart TV at a lower price that is also bundled with broadband – though 1 GB data limit sounds insufficient for majority of users.

It merits mentioning here that PTCL also offers Quad Play Services that includes unlimited voice calls, internet, IPTV and surveillance services.

Charges:

  • The new package is offered to the customers at Rs.749 / month.
  • Existing customer can also avail this package but they have to pay one time charges of Rs.1500 as downgrade charges.
  • One time Equipment (Smart TV STB & Camera) charges may apply.

Highlights:

  • Access to PTCL Smart TV
  • Access to 100 + digital quality TV channels
  • Freedom to pause and rewind live TV programs
  • Library of 500 video on demand.
  • 24/7 service availability from PTCL’s side.
  • Parental control on TV channels and video on demand.
  • Access to rich HD multimedia resources over the internet
  • Access to free movies, music, classical Pakistani plays, famous cricket matches, educational and religious contents exclusively for PTCL broadband customers on ‘Buzz’ broadband web infotainment portal.

Note: There is no student discount on the package


  • Is this package available with higher internet speed (like 1 MB or more), off-course with additional amount.

  • bakwas. Nothing new there.
    lets look at the ALREADY PREVAILING charges
    256kbps DSL costs rs.300 per month
    smart tv services cost rs. 449 per month
    total = 299+449 = rs.749 per month
    What they did not mention is that you need set top box which will cost you rs.5000 and it will be added to your monthly bill. That means taxes of several hundred rupees will be applied.
    The whole adventure ride will cost you as follows
    around 6000 for STB (including taxes)
    1000-1500 activation charge
    749 per month regular service charges with a SO CALLED broadband which originally has 1 GB volume limit.
    Do yourself a favor. Find a local cable service provider and get as many channels for 150-300 per month.

  • Dear Shahzada,

    256kbps dsl – 299
    IPTV. – 449
    line rent. – 199

    So there is a discount of 197 rs.
    Line rent is only waived off on 1mbps and above dsl package for iptv subscription

  • Stb and installation charges are almos same as for other service providers.

    But of course iptv with rewind features can not and should not be compared with lousy and dotty quality

  • karachi main tu inka infrastructure hi itna thaka wa hai , net and iptv and dsl khak chaley ga roaz telephone lines dead ho rahi hotien hain, cable fault her month , distortion, a hell lot of problems with ptcl :P

    • All three services work perfectly well if your inhouse witing is proper.

      telephone should be used after the splitter..

      My experience with PTCL’s triple playservices is good and thankfully they have started improving the content as well

      • I can’t use 2(DSL & Phone) of PTCL’s services at a time so how can I trust with 3 services at a time…When I use internet my phone set is useless because I’ve to hold my phone.
        I’m experiencing this problem from last 2 or three years & I’ve talked to everyone in PTCL but they can’t do anything.

        • you should have given your tel number or an email where someone from PTCL could have contacted you to reslve the issue.

          generally complaints at 1218 or OSS do get addressed

          • As I’ve mentioned above I’ve talked to them sevral times their worker’s/labour don’t do anything..The problem is in line which they are not fixing..My neigbhour’s don’t have any issue it’s only me in town.

    • That’s not true. I have been using IPTC since 2008 and I can attest that the usage of IPTV doesn’t affect the speed of DSL at all and vice versa. IPTV uses a separate and dedicated data channel for its bandwidth.

  • i find a bunch of morons making this package. if we look at the ad, a man with a laptop and a girl with a plasma screen is using a connection of 256kbps?? gosh one should be stupid enough to invest big amount on the luxury items and buying a low speed and 1GB package..really disgusting.

    • it is not 1 GB you pay for more and it gets unlimited after a few GBs.

      and btw there are ppl who need 256kbps speed as they use internet only for browsing.

      you laugh as if the triple play services are not available for ppl with higher bw demand…

      wonder who is a moron here

  • I think having landline line rent waived off is a big relief for all of us. Currently,I am using Smart TV with IMB data rate , daily I do massive downloading of movies, at the same time i am using smart TV which means that Smart TV pipe has nothing to do with internet pipe. Come on guys you all have internet, search for technologies!!!

    • masive downloaders should be on IPTV with 1 mbps and above those who dont have higher data requirements should opt for this package with 256kbps speed

  • first thing first do they charge for STB if yes how much also do they charge activation charges if yes how much lastly service quality in Islamabad (btw they wherever occurs = PTCL)

  • IPTV utilizes a separate bandwidth and even with 256 kbps connection the downstream rate for IPTV is 4096kbps so it wont be stopping and @malik dial 1236 to avail smart tv and a huge relief to know that line rent charges shall be waved off if smart tv availed
