AIS TV to Drop Many Western Channels Like HBO Channels Effective March 2020

Recommended Posts

I just posted a separate topic about it. I’m on the phone again with AIS right now and unless we all start calling AIS at 1175 to give customer feedback we’re going to be losing our great service. This is something that’s going to require us all to get involved with and start calling them to complain or we’ll just lose access to the channels.

HBO is the only good thing about AIS Play.  Hopefully they will launch HBO GO as a stand alone streaming service like Netflix so we don't have keep switching providers.  They just launched in Singapore and the Philippines so maybe could happen.

Just tried both of them and they work perfect on my pc .Is there anything like this that will let me watch the premiership ?

 

You can see a couple EPL games on NBC, what I do is try not to see the scores,

and watch the games the next morning on footballorgin.com , fullmatchesandshows.com

or hdmatches.com. good enough for me.

Happy with that. BEIN 1 & 2 soreley missed since moving from True. Sky News is a loss but can get it live on YouTube. Have Netflix so won't really miss HBO.

Just tried a bunch of channels on both websites worgeordie suggested and they all worked without vpn.

 

I only wonder how this can be legal since most of them are pay tv

Of course it is not legal.

I just got off the phone with an AIS supervisor and I submitted a huge complaint and I asked them to have their marketing department call me back. If they don’t call I will be calling everyday for sure. I think if their marketing department understood more about western culture they would know what a huge mistake they are truly making. I suspect they think a new contract will save them money which it might at first but within a year they will lose at least 50% of their business. True still has not recovered so I suspect maybe True wants their contract back I don’t know. True was a big enough company to survive it though I’m not sure AIS is big enough to survive in the business world if they lose this contract. At the very minimum losing this contract would put DTAC ahead of AIS this will at least put AIS way behind and it could lead to layoffs as well because AIS is no where near as big as True Visions.

 

I don’t think their corporate executives and their marketers are aware or have any idea of the seriousness of mistake they’re about to make simply because they probably don't know enough about western culture to understand that the difference in the television programming is like night and day, it’s like switching to brand X or non alcoholic beer no one wants it I was just trying to explain that to an AIS supervisor for an hour. They’re shooting themselves in the foot! And if anyone else gets the HBO contract like True again it’s over for AIS. As I was explaining that to the AIS supervisor I could tell by her tone of voice that she was understanding I am probably right as I was explaining it to her. I told her this could really hurt AIS and your employees as well not only the customers. And I could just hear the fear in her voice because I was explaining to her how no one wants their alternative channels and they will lose business especially if another company gets that contract AIS is hosed.

There’s a message on AIS right now that all of us can see. All of AIS customers must call AIS at 1175 and complain or else we will lose a great service in one month from now! Effective March 12th no more HBO or any other good channels. Please let’s all call AIS customer service and voice our feedback!

So AIS customers let’s work together here and fight for our great cable service. I am asking all AIS customers to call AIS customer service every day like I’m going to do every day and inquire about it and complain about losing our service. I told them they would lose my business for sure if we lose our channels and all my business including phone and internet services also. I encourage all other AIS customers to do the same and just maybe we’ll get lucky and be able to keep our television service as is. I mean come on I can’t miss the last season of Homeland throw me a bone here let’s all work together and call AIS to complain!

I pay the same as the OP for hundreds of channels via IPTV. It's a brilliant service and I've recommended it to several ThaiVisa members, but not one has taken it up. Paying 600 a month for every channel you could ever want I guess is too much money for them to part with.

I get HBO via a free app on my Samsung Tab S4. Let me know if you want details.

Are you taking about AIS or another service IPTV?
