The fourth edition of the Pakistan Super League can be watched on TV in the UK with A Plus and UK 44 having won the broadcast rights of the tournament in the region. Prime TV channel is the official broadcaster of the PSL in the UK.
Apart from the television broadcast, PCB has also tied up with online websites to enable streaming of the matches. This will ensure greater viewership and in turn will attract bigger sponsors.
This fourth Pakistan Super League season can be watched online at Cricketgateway, a website of the Global Sports Commerce and affiliate Technology Frontier Group, who have been awarded the sole licensing deal for showing it live.
The other way to watch the PSL 2019 is by downloading the Cricket Gateway Android App and Cricket Gateway iOS App. Fans from all over the world can watch the PSL online using this app, with the site having seen nearly 5 million hits last season from Australia, UK, USA, Singapore, UAE, Canada, Malaysia, Saudi Arabia, Sri Lanka, Germany, India and Japan apart from other parts of the world.
