If you are getting bored with the game shows and soaps on Thai TV, you then might be interested in a way to watch live television all the way from the UK. A new service has just been launched called Thai Expat TV. What you get is the basic 8 channels live from the UK: BBC1, BBC2, ITV1, ITV2, ITV4, CH4, Film 4 and More 4. In addition, there are two delayed channels for each channel. For example, if you watch BBC1 +18 you can watch last night’s television here in Thailand the following evening. This is really useful as the time difference would have meant staying up until the early hours of the morning to watch prime time TV.
To watch you don’t need a satellite dish, just a good internet connection of at least 3MB. You then have the choice of signing up for the software option where you watch on your computer, or buying a box to watch on your big screen. If you are not sure if it will work properly, you can sign up for a free trial so that you can test it out first. That’s what I did and I was happy with the quality. If you do decide to go ahead and sign-up, then be sure to use one of these promo codes that will give you three months viewing for free. Offer runs out on Friday 3rd August.
