HBO goes to 3BB?

Recommended Posts

Hopefully can subscribe to HBO separately without the internet.  Had 3BB Fiber before and my experience with them was terrible.   Speeds never reached what was advertised and their customer service and call center are seemed clueless when dealing with them.

You couldn't get HBO from AIS unless you were an AIS customer, so I doubted 3BB would be any different BUT I found the article suggesting HBO will have an app on the Play Store where it can be downloaded and subscribed to for THB 149 pm.

Same here with 3BB too, had their service for a year about 4 years ago, pretty abysmal and certainly no desire to go back to them just to chase HBO.  They may even jump ship again in year or two.  No stability.

How does the 3BB TV service work?  Is it really just using a "browser" type interface to select/view TV channels or is it like True and AIS TV boxes?

I guess it’s down to the contention ratio In your area. I get good speeds as advertised. Downtime is very rare, usually cause by cables that have broken along the road to my house for unknown reason, once reported the guys arrive pretty swiftly. 
 

But agreed, I had issues way over the heads of the call centre staff But yet you had to go through unnecessary procedures and repeating myself to people who didn’t have a clue about the issues I was describing before speaking to the IT team, but I guess that applies to a lot of things in Thailand.

Having 3BB fiber for about 7 months.

Zero headaches, paying for 100/100 Mbit, getting 200/200 most of the day.

Simply had no reason to test their customer service.

Seems service varies much from region to region.

You'll find all the service providers are the same

Yes this is correct my HBO starts effective on March 30th on my new 3BB account and I’m all hooked up and ready. A lot cheaper than AIS as well but less channels so that’s also going to mean more online streaming but better than what AIS offers as of today!

Mine was 1200 baht a month but I got their fastest service.

All they will have on the 30th is HBO and Cinemax but 3BB has a great app where I can still stream a few episodes of a couple of TV shows we’re going to miss for the next couple of weeks not really a big deal at least it’s cheaper service with faster internet.

Yeah they just gave me a free upgrade from 200/200 to 1000/100 but I can only get 600/100 .............
