    Thanks for confirming.

    I could watch yesterday without logging on or creating an account.
    Today, after your confirmation, I created an account and now it is working.

    Is it just me or is cricketgateway having serious server issues? Maybe they didn't anticipate the amount of people who would tune in to watch the PSL?

    Just checked now. It's working fine again.

    It was just refusing to load earlier and I checked whether the server was down. (it was)

    Don't go to the PCB website

    Just open YouTube and type in PSL Live and you'll see the top 2 being live streams.

    What the hell.. I wanna support the league and all, but this is BS. Don't advertise online streaming for free if you're gonna pull this crap at the end.

    $2 is nothing, this is the very little that we can do to support PSL and thank them for making great quality video available. Had they sold it to willow or someone else, we'd be playing more or watching low quality streams. They could have easily charged much more themselves too, it definitely costs them much more to stream it.

    Its not about $2 (which I have already paid), it's about dishonesty. Why not be transparent from the start? I feel like I was baited.

    Baited for what, it wasn't like there was an alternate we were going to use or go to the stadium to watch. And that too for just $2. I think we should just be happy with all they gave us and that they are only asking for $2 and not trying to extort us. I was surprised too but then I felt it was fair, hopefully they do the same next year so we can watch easily instead of worrying about streams or Willow.

    Well, the way I look at it is, that they showed you the sample before hand.
    At least, you know what you will be buying for $2. They are not twisting your arm for you to buy it. You had an option to say no.

    I am really appreciative that I saw best quality stream free for league matches.

    You're missing the point. Why did they advertise free streaming multiple times during every match if it wasn't entirely free?

    CricketGateway is a stable platform and I love to watch PSL on it, especially without ads. Would've paid more than $2 had they they announced the price before tournament for convenience alone. I'm not arguing against it.

    Having said that, I felt betrayed for being told one thing and them changing it without prior notice.

    I see your point but I think with all they gave us, we can overlook that and should be glad what we got and that they are only asking for $2 now. Many people have paid much more in the past to buy pirated streams or had to put up with free but unreliable, low quality or trojan infested streams. I guess we're just placing emphasis on different things.

    They'll get $2 from my wallet over my dead body. I have never paid for watching anything on my computer, I'm not starting now.

    Have you ever paid to watch something over TV (pay-per-view) or movie theater?

    If yes, then what's the difference?

    Today's match alone was worth the $2! Glad to have watched it with a great high quality stream with no issues.

    No, never bought pay per view. Yes, I have bought movie tickets but if I could get in without paying, you bet I would.
