  1. Sorry, it's actually called sky net sports. Do it the way I describe below to select the match you want to watch and you don't even have to search through the BEIN/SKY NET SPORTS channel to find the match. Click on it in the schedule and HD Prime takes you to it automatically. Click on the sports schedule option on the HDPrime TV home page. From the drop down box click on the match you want to watch and it will take you straight to it. With Champions league matches you will automatically be connected to the relevant Sports Net channel For all EPL matches you will automatically be connected to the relevant Bein Sports channel. All EPL matches, including the Saturday 3pm games and midweek evening games, are available from that list.
  2. I'm watching on HD Prime using sports net. It's working fine, no buffering and the commentary is in English.Half time at the moment
  3. Is it in the police order or just another interpretation? It's in the statement from Phuket Immigration Deputy Chief Lt Col Archeep Jaroensuntisuk here: https://www.thephuketnews.com/holding-the-balance- phuket-immigration-clarifies-new-rules-on-retirement-visas-to-start-march-1-70401.php#P21je7zJjFqp2Q9G.97
  4. I all honesty not that I can see for the income method, confirmation that proof of income can be from various sources, not just pensions as originally stated.
  5. And, if too many people do that as a way of getting around the new rules, that option is likely to be closed, or at least severely curtailed, meaning it will cause problems for those who genuinely need to use Savannakhet as a one-off instead of having to go back to their home country.
  6. Champions league matches on BT Sports are also shown on Sports Net which again is usually stable. Click on the sports schedule option on the HDPrime TV home page. From the drop down box click on the match you want to watch and it will take you straight to it. With Champions league matches you will automatically be connected to the relevant Sports Net channel For all EPL matches you will automatically be connected to the relevant Bein Sports channel. All EPL matches, including the Saturday 3pm games and midweek evening games, are available from that list.
  7. I don't think you would have had any trouble getting your money back. A mate of mine from the UK thought he could load his TW account ready for a transfer later that day and transferred some money to TW from his bank account before he had actually set up the transfer in the normal way. (yes, I know you can do this on their One card now but before they were available you had to set up the transfer first before sending the the money) Because, when they received the money in their account, there was no live pending transfer to match the money to they returned it to his bank account immediately then emailed him to confirm what they'd done.
  8. So is there a level above/below where checks are/aren't normally made? People don't seem to have a problem transferring from the UK. But it appears there is a problem for Americans because of their banking/tax system
  9. So is it as difficult to do domestic transfers in the US?.......because my transfer to TW in the UK is a simple straight forward domestic transfer, they have a UK bank account I transfer to.
  10. 100 km from Immigration, 20 km from a post Office, internet not working (unless you're replying to posts on Thai Visa) ......... where abouts do you actually live in Thailand? Just seen this earlier post of yours. If you are out of the country that often you would never do a 90 day report anyway. The distance you are complaining about is irrelevant.
  11. If you're out of the country you don't do any 90 day reports, if you're in Thailand when the report is due it's only a trip to your local Immigration Office, OR the cost of a stamp to post it, OR free if you do it on line. Sorry, Lopburi3 has already replied.........I'd forgotten to hit 'submit reply'
  12. No true at least for me. I am living permanently all year in Thailand, but my wife not. The extension is not cheaper when you need a reentry permit I did say COULD be cheaper. I was comparing the cost of somebody staying in Thailand on a one year non O visa (5k baht?) plus the cost of any border runs (possible 2k baht each) you might have to make with the cost of an extension (1900 baht) and re-entry permit (3800/1000 baht). An extension with three trips abroad (3 x 1000 baht re-entry permits) is still cheaper than one non O visa alone. Depending on your personal circumstances you could well be in the minority and the exception to my example.
  13. In that instance they wouldn't be living permanently in Thailand would they. If they are visiting part of the time the visa system is for them, unless they could fit their visits in with an annual extension which could be cheaper and more convenient.
  14. From reading the various posts on TV about problems you have transferring money to Thailand you obviously have a much more complicated banking system in the US than we do in the UK. I, my UK friends and many others from the UK have been using TW for some time now without any problems. When I want to make a transfer I Start the process on the TW app. When I get to the point of sending money to them I have a choice of using a debit card, credit card or bank transfer. I personally prefer not to leave my card details anywhere unnecessarily so I go to my bank app and do a simple direct transfer to TW (their details are stored on the app). Then I go back to TW to confirm the transfer and receive a confirmation email within minutes saying the transfer has started. Less than two minutes from start to finish. I then get a second email when the money has arrived at my Thai bank, along with an information receipt. I assume it's of the time difference because, if I complete the transfer before 8:00am Thailand time the money is usually in my Bangkok Bank by 2:00pm the same day. If it's completed after 8:00am it will arrive the next day, excluding weekends of course.
