Ever since TrueVisions lost the rights to broadcast the English Premier League in Thailand, everyone has been waiting to hear how they can watch the football matches on CTH. This is mainly because hardly anyone had heard of them before. Many people kept asking me what packages and prices they would offer and how they would be able to watch the channels. The wait is nearly over as this month they will be launching their packages for football lovers in Thailand. We now have some details about the packages and also how to watch. Unfortunately, their website is only in Thai, but here is the outline as I understand so far:
What’s on offer are 140 channels which includes 31 channels in HD. The logos for these channels can be seen below. As for the EPL, you will be able to watch all 380 matches on six dedicated channels. The prices start at only 599 Baht all the way up to 899 Baht depending on how far in advance that you pay.
- 899 Baht – Subscription price for paying monthly
- Pay 899 Baht per month for 10 months (8,990 Baht) and watch for 12 months which makes it 748 Baht per month
- Pay 899 Baht per month for 18 months (16,182 Baht) and watch for 24 months which makes it 673 Baht per month
- Pay 899 Baht per month for 24 months (21,576 Baht) and watch for 36 months which makes it 599 Baht per month
There are presently two ways that subscribers can watch the programs. Either through a local cable operator or by using a set top box with a KU-band satellite dish. Rent for this is 125 Baht per month or a deposit of 1,800 Baht. If you visit their website, there is a form (click here) where you can register for the set-top box. Unfortunately its all in Thai so you will need to find someone to help you if you cannot read it.
If you know any further information, then please post in the comments below. One of the main questions at the moment is, will the matches have English commentary? I guess that goes for the other channels. No point signing up for something if everything is dubbed into Thai.
One way to watch ALL of the EPL matches in Thailand is either by subscribing to 365Sport or CTH. With 365Sport you can watch five days on demand. That means if you don’t want to stay up for a match you can watch when you wake up in the morning or any time for the following five days.
