Live Stream Cricket World Cup Matches with Smart TV App [Review]

As you might have already read about PTCL’s Smart TV App on this website, particularly about their World Cup offer that includes AD-Free Live streaming of entire Cricket World Cup on your Smartphones (Android and iOS) Laptops or PCs.

With Smart TV App, you don’t have to miss your favourite cricketing moments while on the go, even when in Office, university, college or even while you are on the road.

Not to mention, AD-Free world cup cricket matches is a rare treat that PTCL is offering for the first time in Pakistan. The amount of ADs that are shown during live world cup cricket matches is so humongous that we usually watch cricket match during ads.

Check here about what people had to say about AD-Free World Cup on Twitter.

Before we go ahead with service review, let’s have a look at the features of Smart TV App:

  • One thing is not being made clear and that is if you use evo device to stream through ptcl smart TV app, will my data be used for that streaming or ptcl smart TV streaming will not account for data usage? Because nowadays we have 30gb limit on evo devices. So if data is used then this becomes a non sense service at least for evo subscribers.

      • 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

  • “These include all major Pakistani channels and PEMRA approved international channels.”

    Most of the international channels in this list are not approved by PEMRA.

  • How is the video/audio quality of the channels? Just wondering if we will we get a reasonable quality on TV if the tablet/phone is connected to TV.

  • I you do not wanna wake up people while watching the match, get good head phones and this app. Perfect for early morning matches.

  • Manay apni shop pay connection lay lia hain iska match dheaknay kay lia. Aram say matchdheak sakta ho ab.

  • #PTCL #adfree smart TV app is here to catch
    up with all favorite programs on the go..Don’t have to worry about work burden.
