While it claims to support HD live streaming, it often doesn't stream many sports in HD, but in a lower quality. Also, there's no search option for quickly finding a desired live match, but have to go through the catalog for finding it. Yet, it has a download option to save some matches offline for streaming later and sharing the live matches links with friends easily.
Started in 2012, PTV Sports Live focuses majorly on Cricket and is well known for its all-around coverage of the Pakistan Super League (PSL). And since cricket is the most loved game for many netizens, PTV Sports Live often arranges pre and post-match chat sessions between the game experts. Also, it has crafted schedules to stream some sports throughout the timeline.
And since owned by the state, future broadcasting rights of all these sports are most likely to be offered to PTV Sports Live, which can also be on its official website and TVs with a basic antenna setup.
