How to Watch HBL PSL Live Online?
PSL’s official streaming partner is CricketGateway.ae, which will be streaming all of the tournament’s matches live online. But this option is paid and requires you to pay $14.99 billed once to access the whole tournament live streaming.
On top of this, the site is geo-restricted in some places, especially outside of the MENA and South Asian regions, so you will need to get the best streaming VPN to not just unblock the site but also to offer you with a premium viewing experience.
Some other, equally valuable, free streaming sites for HBL PSL are as follows:
PSL on Kodi
Previously, there were some add-ons through which you could stream PSL on Kodi, but as of now, no such add-on exists which can reliably offer you streams from the event.
Some blogs have mentioned KodiIsrael repo to contain add-ons that continue to stream the event live, but those claims are unfounded because I found none during my tests.
