PTCL Smart TV is Pakistan’s pioneer IPTV service, offering viewers high quality television with a range of exciting features designed to inform and entertain.
The service currently offers 100+ live TV channels and over 2000 hours of entertainment content through its Video on Demand service available in 150 cities. PTCL Smart TV delivers television programs to households via broadband connection and requires a subscription and a set-top box. However, users without broadband can buy PTCL Smart TV on its own.
Smart TV offers key advantages over conventional cable TV including higher image quality and clearer sound.
• TV on Demand
Also called Catch up TV, TV on Demand is an exciting feature that allows viewers to watch the previous four days programs at their own convenient time. Only PTCL Smart TV offers this feature in Pakistan, putting the viewers in command of watching TV.
• Personal Video Recorder
With the Personal Video Recorder viewers can schedule the recording of their favorite program to be aired in the next/upcoming 4 days. The viewer can watch these recorded programs at their time of convenience. The recorded program is stored for 4 days from the time of recording.
• Time Shift Television (TSTV)
Time Shift Television is an exciting feature that allows you to playback live TV channels at any time you want. If you miss an important part of a movie, a show, or a sporting event, you can view it by ‘rewinding’ the particular channel (that displays the TSTV sign).
• Parental Control
This feature enables parents to restrict certain channels which are not suitable for juvenile viewing. Restriction is enabled by assigning a password to particular channel(s) thus empowering parents to control the content their children can watch on PTCL Smart TV.
