I enjoyed BT's coverage (and and analysis) whenever I watched through streaming.
A Plus Europe Sky Channel #859
It is a Pakistani entertainment channel that launched last week and they have acquired the rights.
List of PSL broadcasters.
There are more channels showing the PSL in UK, than in Pakistan lulz.
Thanks @Ahson8 plenty of choices for us then. I also still have the cricketgateway app on my phone to watch on the go
That means I need to download that app then as the timings will be such that wont get much chance to catch it on the big screen i.e TV.
I don't think Geo Tv is showing it in the UK as I have not come across any promos on there the little that I have seen of Geo.
This is the list posted by the official PSLT20 account, so it should be correct IMO..
I won't be surprised if it isn't as anything changes last minute when it comes to Pakistan. LOL!

Ricky Ponting: “As a player, I always looked forward to the Champions Trophy. Winning it on two occasions was a big thrill. This year I’m really looking forward to it being staged in England and being a part of the commentary team.
“I’m expecting Australia and England to make the final with Pat Cummins and Jason Roy, two guys to stand out across the two weeks. I can’t wait!”
Brendon McCullum: “The ICC Champions Trophy is one event I look back on with many fond memories. Each team will be desperate to do well and put their stamp on the 50-over game.
“To now be in the commentary box for such a prestigious tournament is something I am really looking forward to. Working with names like Ponting, Ganguly and Smith is going to be great fun and hopefully we can give the viewers a unique insight on the action unfolding out in the middle.”
Graeme Smith: “I was very excited when I was asked to commentate at this year’s Champions Trophy and didn’t hesitate to accept. The Champions Trophy is a great tournament where every team has a chance to do well. I am sure there will be a few surprises and many memorable performances, so there’s a lot to look forward to!”
Kumar Sangakkara: "The Champions Trophy is a special tournament which I loved playing in and am honoured to have enjoyed success in. Now, as a commentator, I am very much looking forward to being part of the tournament and watching the best players in the world go head to head.
Most of the teams have a chance of lifting the trophy so it promises to be a fascinating three weeks of action."

Sony MAX UK to air Sri Lanka & Pakistan cricket series this month
Standing strong at the No.1 position amongst Bollywood movie channels in the UK, Sony MAX has just confirmed to BizAsiaLive.comthat it will broadcast the upcoming Sri Lanka and Pakistan cricket series, starting later this month.
The recently concluded India tour of Sri Lanka proved a huge hit for Sony MAX, giving the channel an edge over its rivals. Within a month of joining the Sky Original Pack, Sony MAX beat off competition from Star Gold, ZEE Cinema, Rishtey Cineplex and B4U Movies. The competition is set to intensify further with the upcoming Sri Lanka and Pakistan cricket series, along with the premiere of all-time blockbuster movie ‘Baahubali’ on Sony MAX.
The series, which starts on Sunday 24th September, is expected to take place in the United Arab Emirates over September and October. It will consist of two Tests, five One Day Internationals and three Twenty20 International matches. It is also reported that one of the One Day Internationals will be played in Lahore, which will be a homecoming for the Sri Lanka team after their team’s bus was attacked by terrorists while travelling to the Gaddafi Stadium in Lahore in 2009.
Viewers who subscribe to the Sky Box Sets package, will also be able to watch the cricket series and movies on Sony MAX HD – the first UK Bollywood HD movie channel.

DSPORT, a premium sports TV channel launched by Discovery Communications India, will broadcast the HBL Pakistan Super League (PSL) 2018. DSPORT will air LIVE & Exclusive all the 34 matches of the third edition of the premier T20 competition in Pakistan. Scheduled to begin on February 23, 2018
PSL Broadcasting TV Rights
All eyes in the cricketing world will turn towards the PSL in February next year as Pakistan cricket will be hosting the third edition of the T20 league on par with some of the most successful leagues from across the globe.
Here’s how you can watch the PSL live online free
The tournament is set to kick off in February 2018 and the final is set to be played in Karachi. The venues in UAE are primarily Dubai and Sharjah hosting some of the matches while Pakistan is set to host 8 matches. Six teams will be competing for the trophy in PSL 2018.
PSL to be streamed live on PSL-t20 Official site (Pakistan viewers) / Cricketgateway (International viewers).
Pakistan - PTV Sports, Ten Sports, Geo Super
India - PSL to air in India on DSport for the first time.
Sri Lanka - Dialog TV
UAE - Yupp TV
UK - Prime TV
West Indies - Flow TV
Bangladesh - Gazi TV
Africa - Supersport
North Africa - Yupp TV
Australia - No official broadcaster. Highlights on foxsports.com.au.
Currently, PTV, Geo Sports and Ten Sports are the three official broadcasting TV partners for showing all cricket matches played in Pakistan. Indian viewers weren’t able to watch the second season of the PSL on TV which meant they needed to log in to Cricketgateway to watch it online.
However, according to latest reports, the third season of the PSL might be broadcast in India on DSport, which had recently also won a few other cricket rights in the country.
The third 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.
The third edition of the Pakistan Super League 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 2018 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.
Although more is to be revealed later about the broadcasters of the PSL, PCB Executive Committee chief, Najam Sethi, says that PSL will make money out of broadcast rights, sponsorship rights, apparel rights, and ticket sales with the franchises getting a share out of this central pool.
This alone puts the broadcast rights in a very crucial position as it will bear an important mark on the financial viability and success of this T20 league and will also be a crucial indicator on how the PSL is received across the world vis-à-vis other similar domestic championships.
