    will it work outside Pakistan?

    • Saqib

      it will work if you have a ptcl connection outside Pakistan

      • gumby

        lol I asked because no where it asks for a PTCL connection. The app just asks you to register and charge your account even with a credit card or other options. Anyone can do that in Pakistan and then go outside Pakistan and watch the matches using this app. You just need a user name and password to access your account which can be done from anywhere in the world. Now only if there is restriction by PTCL to use PTCL broadband service then it won’t work outside Pakistan.

        • shah

          You need to be on using one of Pakistan’s gateways to access the stream

      • Haida Kay

        Hahahaha love y0u brother, u jst made me ROFL .. no offence to gumby :)

    • Waqar Khan

      Nope it only works with a PTCL connection.

      • Waqar Khan

        No wait. Works with any connection. Also works outside of Pakistan if you have paid for it here.

        • Ahmiq

          have you tried outside pakistan?

  • Muhammad Ashraf

    Dear Author,

    • kukkar

      tu phir world cup apka howa.? Bhai when will we do away with all this attention wh0ring? Any estimates?
      Please dont fall to the petty level of our news channels. You are better than them.

      • Right Doer

        Yes. Be the kukkar, do the right thing!

        • Khurram ShahzAd

          That makes the “Right Doer” a kukker? :-)

  • Amir

    May be you should embed link to Itunes and Android play store apps.

    • Danish Iqbal

      Just search for PTCL Smart TV on both devices. Make sure to set your store location on iOS as Pakistan

  • Tanveer Khan

    Need 2g or 3g

    • Sarah Ijaz

      A good 3G connection or a 2 Mbps is recommended. I called PTCL and found out!

  • Wasim

    they should also focus on fault rectification. Fault takes 1 week to resolve after falling into their feet.

  • Ahmed Habib

    Pehli android app kam ni karti new launch kr di, great!

    • Talha Khan

      They have updated the app. Check it out, its works really nicely now!

  • Rizwan Liaqat

    I want to pay for this service but I’d like to be able to see whether the stream works smoothly and is good quality, widescreen or HD. Unfortunately there is no way of knowing what it looks like until you pay.

    • Fahad Haroon

      I have tired it and if you have a good connection the stream is very good. Not HD but SD which looks really good on a small screen.

      • Rizwan Liaqat

        Is it widescreen I mean, like the Sky Sports stream? 16:9 resolution or the normal 4:3 one?

  • Asif

    Can’t see app on play store

    • Altaf Hashim

      Set you store location to Pakistan you will see it then.

  • waqas

    Score on ad free channel can’t display clearly

  • Aamir

    This is simply bullshit, Propaksitani pls confirm from the source first then advertise on your page.
    your remarks are:
    “Not to mention, this service will run on any Internet Connection (other than PTCL services) that too without any ads.”
    I have subscribed to this service and now unable to play on my 3G enabled iPad. and PTCL help line says you can watch it only on PTCL broadband or wifi.
    this is simply frustrating!!!

    • aamir7

      PTCL told me themselves that it can be played with any ISP. Let me check again and confirm you.

      • Aamir

        I have given them reference of ProPakistani and they replied check our website, no such thing is mentioned on it.

        • aamir7

          Aamir I am myself playing Smart TV app on Xperia Z (Android) through Nayatel. Tested it on Telenor’s 3G too.

          So, it works fine on non-PTCL internet.

          • Aaimir

            Aamir Bhai, I am unable to play on my iPad on Mobilink 3G. PTCL help line confirmed me that it will work only on PTCL ISP.
            secondly they are true in there claim that its not mentioned on our site that it will work on any ISP.

            • aamir7

              Sir you can trust me. I am playing it seamlessly on Nayatel. They haven’t mentioned it on their website as naturally they wouldn’t want you to use their services on other than PTCL DSL network.

              Try it on any other device. You also debug it by making sure that you are not behind a proxy or a firewall.

              • Muhammad Ashraf

                I hope in next few days when nayatel come to know this then they will block it

              • Khurram ShahzAd

                Though PTCL people are bunch of – Beep Sound Here – . I am pretty sure they would have told you it can run anywhere. Also it may have been running surely for you in different connections but still on page where they have this promotion, in FAQ section they have following text as Question 10.

                Q10: Why can’t I log in?
                A:
                The app is for PTCL broadband and EVO customers only. Please make sure
                you are using PTCL broadband to access the PTCL Smart TV app. Please
                note that a single username will work with 1 mobile device, 1 tablet,
                and 1 PC only (one screen at a time).
