Pakistan Television (commonly known as PTV) is the credited as the first televised media broadcasting network of Pakistan. It is under ownership of the Government of Pakistan and was the only television station in the country till the beginning of the 21st century.
PTV has brought many fine entertainment dramas and soaps over the years. Over the years, this Corporation has seen quite a setback and has been competing with many private television channels. The company was allowed by the government to charge Rs. 35 per month as TV fee from all viewers. The fee is part of the electricity bill.
PTV Sports division has provided viewers with healthy entertainment since 1983. It has been covering different sports events. As of December 30th 2011, PTV Corporation launched a new channel named “PTV Sports” for 24-hour sports coverage. The inauguration of the station took place on January 11th 2012 at PTV Center, Islamabad. The station is the first state-run sports channel aimed to provide international and national events. This TV station provides live coverage of different sporting events.
Viewers can enjoy live coverage of different sports in the country and abroad. PTV Sports live allows viewers to enjoy sports from all over the world like live Cricket, Football and Hockey. Other benefits of live PTV Sports include:
* It allows viewers to participate in the event without being present at the event. There are different tournaments going at the same time, for example, the Euro Cup and Pakistan vs. Sri Lanka series are going on these days. There is no way that one person can attend all matches. Live Sports coverage provides viewers with the benefit of enjoying different games at the same time.
* You can enjoy the coverage of live matches on Pakistan Television Sports channel without paying any money. It is free of cost.
* The event is covered live. This allows the audience to view events through online streaming. The provider is responsible for the coverage of the event and tries to provide the best quality.
There are different websites that provide live PTV Sports streaming options. However, PTV’s live streaming option is comparatively new but is accessible to viewers in Pakistan only. The channel does not have many television shows as it is covering different games events 24/7. The channel has bought the rights to show UEFA Euro 2012 tournaments. It is at present showing the tournament in the flesh. Viewers should avoid the use of random websites that have no rights to live stream a channel.
At the moment, the channel has one live show featuring Aamir Sohail called Sports Circle. Here guests linked with different games are called forward and asked to give a complete analysis before and after the match. It is predicted that the channel will complete the process of digitalization by December 2012.
PTV Sports and Zee TV have recently signed an agreement to promote the broadcast of sports events by state-run sports channels only. Once the agreement is successful, other privately run sports channels will suffer huge losses.Official Website Live Streaming
