Thank you very much! I have sent him a message via this email address. Stupid I didn't look for that address...

Are you happy with the TV programs you can get? And how is the quality?

Try their 24 hour free trail, as i said before once i upgrade my isp from TOT to AIS quality is excellent

The most pertinent question is not price but wether it has a playback option.

With the time difference to europe or the us you will end up watching awful tv if it only has a live option.

yes they do have catch-up on most UK channels.

It's 12 hours, but you can order a 2nd and a 3rd free trial, if you need to. But tomorrow I will transfer the fee for 12 months. Their free trial is now running on my living room 50" TV. I have TOT 100MB down and I'm the only user in the village, whole bandwidth for ourselves. Well, this is what I have always dreamed of: all the channels you could possibly want, even HD channels from my native Switzerland, in fact, sooooooooo many, and all in top quality, most of them HD. for a mere 325 Baht per month. I'm really thrilled. I think: the best offer available anywhere. I think no-one else can match this.

No comparison to Truevison, absolutely none. And much, much cheaper.

Well, I am sad to admit, that the service worked only one day.

 

Since this early morning. everything is constantly buffering. The TV picture is moving for 1 to max 5 seconds and then it's buffering, buffering. I must admit that my Internet was slow this morning, but I checked the speed again at 15:35 and I had over 100 MB down. I do hope it is only a temporary problem with the Farangbox server and everything returns to normal, because the choice of channels is just incredible.

 

Here is my speedtest: http://www.speedtest.net/result/6982840273   116 MB down.

 

For the time being I don't receive any answer on my emails to support@farangbox.com. I will update on this place.

I have just got the 12 hour trial.

Seems to be working ok.

The test will come when the football starts.

 

I cannot see anything that suggests there is any catchup facility.

There was a issue with Pulse this afternoon too.

Farangbox is a bit clunky for my liking but i may give it a second go.

If I were you I would not subscribe! You may encounter the same as I did. It's now 5 1/2 hours since I sent him several emails. He did not answer. Go to Trustpilot and see for yourself. There are 5 reviews. Two are good, probably his friends. The three others encountered the same as me. They paid and the service stopped and he never answered their emails. This just for your info.

 

The service worked fine during the 12-hour trial. Then I paid 3'900 Baht fee for 12 months. Th first day (yesterday) the service worked fine. From this morning on it was crap. Almost 6 hours after I sent him several emails it still doesn't work and he did not answer.

 

I asked him repeatedly his name, he never gave me his name. He knows exactly why. Judge for yourself.

Lite Beer, you made that post 2 hours ago. You requested a trial code via support@farangbox.com. So he sent you the trial code about 2 hours ago via freetrial@farangbox.com, right? I tried to get an answer for the last six hours, he answered yours, but he did not answer my emails I sent to the same address.

 

It is normal that your 12-hour trial is running fine. If you then pay, your first day will be running fine, too. Then suddenly, it won't work anymore. I am sure, you don't know the guys name, nor his address, nor have contact phone number. I fell into his trap. I will ask him to make this thing work and give him 48 hours. If within 48 hours he doesn't answer or restores the service I have paid for, I will ask him to refund me the 3'900 Baht I paid that Thai person (probably his gf). I doubt that he would ever refund me the money.

 

Have a look at Trustpilot/farangbox.

 

Judge for yourself!

I requested the trial via his website at 12.30 and got the code at 5.30. 

Using with Perfect Player. 

 

I would never pay upfront for a year.

Right you are. So at 1730 he had already seen my mails.I am a member here since 2007 and have seen you appearing here countless times. Don't get hurt. I just send him now another email and give him 48 hours. Within 48 hours the service is working perfectly like the trial or the 3'900 Baht are back in my bank account.

It just seemed to good to be true. Too cheap.

Ive used thaiexpat, 365sports, flawless, iviewhd and pulsetv since ive been in Thailand and when somebody is offering a service for half the price it makes me wary.

Been using pulse for a year now at tje end of the month. 

Best bit is that you can have it on 4 seperate platforms.

Great if you share internet with a friend or 2 and you can all share the costs.

Well, I can report that I have been refunded the 3'900 Baht, because Farangbox is not able to deliver what they promise.

The problem lies with TOT, not Farang Box. Your speedtest was within Thailand so means nothing. you need to do a speedtest to Europe with https://testmy.net/.

You will need at least a good 20Mb/sec to Europe, London or Frankfurt, for it to work OK.

I had the same problem with my IPTV service (not Farang Box), with AIS Fibre, just not enough international bandwidth and constant buffering.

Complained to AIS constantly and they did nothing. I have now changed to 3BB Fibre and so far so good.
