The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has signed a three-year satellite broadcast deal with the Pakistan Television Network (PTV). The deal will see PTV broadcast all Pakistan's home bilateral commitments as well as all domestic cricket and could see them earn in excess of USD $200 million.

“The broadcasting arrangement is structured to provide for increasing revenues over the term of the cycle and PCB expects to earn in excess of US$200 million over the three year term,” the board said in a release.

The agreements were signed in the presence of the former captain and current Prime Minister of Pakistan, Imran Khan. It is believed that the PCB and PTV will share the revenues taking up 57.5% and 42.5% respectively.

While this broadcasting deal is for Pakistan only, PCB is expected to finalize the grant of its broadcast rights for international territories separately as well as launching a new structure for its digital media rights.

Also for the first time all the major Domestic tournaments, including the Quaid-e-Azam Trophy, the National T-20 Cup, the One Day Pakistan Cup and the National U-19 One-Day and National U-19 Three Day tournaments, will be broadcast live on PTV Sports and distributed across Pakistan on cable networks.

It has also been reported that the board is in terms to convert PTV Sports from SD to HD broadcast format.

“It also seeks to create the impetus to expedite the conversion of analogue cable to digital cable in Pakistan which will go a long way in ensuring all cricket fans receive the highest quality and maximum quantity of cricket content on their television screens," said PCB. "Digital cable will allow cricket lovers to select from simultaneously played live matches and not miss any cricket match.”
