It seems that every few months a new satellite service comes out in Thailand. First GMM-Z and then Sun-Box. Good news for us consumers of course, but from what I have seen so far, it is not really much in competition with True Visions. Mainly channels in Thai language only. This new one probably won’t be much different. The name on the box is TrueTV. It is a partnership between two satellite giants: PSI and TrueVisions. The press conference was only this afternoon so I don’t have full information yet, but I do know the following. There will be over 100 channels on this box with no monthly subscription fees. They guarantee this “1 million per cent”. As for the channels, 65 of them come from PSI and 56 from TrueVisions. The cost of the box and satellite dish is 1,990 Baht or 890 Baht for the box only.
I will update this post as soon as I get more information.
