Watching World Cup Rugby in Ubon

Recommended Posts

I have lived in Ubon since 1994. I have watched live on TV, six Rugby World Cups on my True (before UBC) package. I sat down just before midday today to watch live, Fiji vs Australia. Clicked on to Setanta. No World Cup rugby. I thought another channel must be showing it. Not one single channel was showing it. No worries. I have RugbyPass. And guess what? No World Cup rugby on RugbyPass.

 

Panic.

 

I did a quick search and found this channel which I had never heard of before beinsports.com

 

For a 1600 baht package they will allow one to see all the World cup Rugby games. Took me about 5 minutes to login and get accepted. Another few minutes to connect from mobile phone to the TV. 

 

So I now can watch the rugby world cup. I guess Thailand is not a mad rugby nation and not that many people would be interested in watching. Still, in previous years, the World Cup was streamed live. Maybe these rights are too expensive these days.

It's typical True Visions. I loath them now. ITV have it live if you want a link to free ITV that streams well, let me know. You have Bein now but with ITV you will get the punditry etc.

Agree with both. UBC were also bent removing channels and refusing to return monies. I kicked them out 10? years back as TRUE took over.

Now this week they too have removed channels which I've had on a complete package including phone, Internet, data and TV for more than 2 years. So I must also change and find an Internet deal, buy phone cards, and purchase channels from somewhere. No way will TRUE reinstate or replace those lost programmes as they don't give a dam* about contracts.

 

BTW, Bein has been up in the 600s on TRUE for quite a long time. And I enjoyed a great live Aussie Rules Football game last weekend on the only Australian channel TRUE have up near Aljazeera.

Setanta has become such a disappointment in recent years. Travesty for them to tout themselves as "the rugby channel". Based in Ireland, most of their stuff is southern hemisphere these days

Check out NFPS IPTV. Believe it’s there. Though I am more into American football ( go Cowboys). Last year they had a special $160 us for lifetime. Carry US Brit Spanish and Indian channels.

Thank you for that information Patriot. Good on Seven Seas. I am very pleased with my World Cup package from beINsports. The commentators are excellent (very neutral). I don't get to watch that many games Live as I am working, but then I could watch replays if I wanted to.
