IT is undesirable that ever since PTV Sports came on the air, leading private sports channels like ESPN and Star Sports are blocked every now and then to increase PTV Sports viewership where you have to watch too many advertisements even during the overs in cricket matches at times.

Even worse, we are unable to watch big sports events such as French Open these days only because PTV Sports is showing cricket.

This is unacceptable. I hope somebody should take action on the issue.

Cricket should only be shown in one province because current cricket team represents only one province!

That is how the private TV channels in the country have mushroomed and prospered because they don't have to compete with superior channels although they have nothing valuable or worthwhile to offer to the viewers. They can not even conduct a news programme sanely,
