  • ahsan Khan

    Smart TV is a great service, specially its Pause and Rewind feature is awesome.

  • Shahid Saleem

    There is an Android application for Smart TV with 30 day free stream. I don’t have a subscription so I cannot try it.

  • Welldone

    I think PTCL’s smart tv has the best channels. The show RT News,CCCTV and also have a variety of National GEO, Adventure, Wild etc. The variety in all gnres distinguishes PTCL from the run of the mill cable tv channels. And of course the ability to rewind a channel is amazing specially on the moview channels

  • It’s still very expensive compared to other cable & 5000 for STB :(
    Can anyone share his experience with PTCL Smart TV because I’ve heard sometimes it starts buffering like watching online videos on internet is it true?
    And can we use it on more than 1 TV sets?

  • hasan

    does it offer HD/3D channels?

  • Mushahid

    Does using Smart TV have any effect on download speeds and latency ? I’m tired of local kachra cable tv so looking for alternatives.

      Not at all if you have a good DSL line, preferably Fiber based. I’ve been using from quite a while now over Fiber based line without any issue. Let me try to explain what they actually do:

      SmarTV requires 4Mbps bandwidth to work perfectly, So they configure 4Mbps profile for you at first place. Any additional Internet bandwidth would raise this profile accordingly, e.g., I have 2Mbps Internet with SmarTV that makes a total of 6Mbps profile on my Modem. Now here is the catch…..6Mbps is a hefty amount of bandwidth and if you lack a good Media. I wouldn’t recommend even think about SmarTV. Because PTCL people won’t tell you while installation, they just need to sell their product and they will. You will be left with a new headache in your life, believe me PTCL’s after sales services are pathetic. If all goes well, there is no match of PTCL SmarTV in terms of channel quality.

      • Mushahid

        I’m already on fiber so that wouldn’t be an issue plus my downstream rate is already 6mb even though I’m on a 2mb connection.
