Plans hatched for Thai version of Netflix

Same here. My wife lately has been spending hours on the Korean stuff, and rarely seems to be watching Thai soaps....something she used to do regularly...

 

Dunno if this is a passing fad, or a longer-term shift.  At least with the Korean shows, AFAICT, you don't get the incessant audio batterings of "boing" "boom" "whistle", etc etc...

 

The korean stuff is far more entertaining then the Thai stuff. I find korean stuff often better then American stuff. My only problem with it is that its not in English so I really have to focus. Can't be multitasking.

The idea isn't to provide programming.

 

It is to create a slush fund that can be slowly drained by the pigs at the trough until it goes under. Then get billions in bailout money.

 

Rinse, lather, repeat.

how do you buy stock in a Thai sound effects company? 

 

Thailand is the Rodney Dangerfield of technology... They don't get no respect (deservedly so)...

 

Can I get a "badda bing, badda boom, whoop whoop, whistle whistle" for that???  :cheesy:

I haven't really been paying close attention. I don't watch the Korean shows WITH the wife... She watches them herself at night after getting home from work, while I'm usually working at home.

 

But from what I can gather, she's watching them on some kind of ostensibly free website that serves up the korean shows with Thai subtitles and/or Thai audio dubbing. Not sure who's doing that or who's behind it.

There are loads of Korean shows on netflix, some are quite entertaining. As i said too bad they dont dub them in English. They are quite creative and i like a lot of them. Prefer them often over American stuff. Not all of course but they certainly are not bad.

“For example, three international online shopping platforms are more popular than platforms run by the ministries of Commerce and Interior, and Thailand Post, because state-owned platforms do not meet the people’s needs,” he said.

Thats strange, you would think that giving a General without business experience a ton of taxpayer's money would result in far superior products and services than the free market can come up with... appearently not.

The Chinese may lend them theirs. At a price of course. You do need something for all the Chinese tourists to watch when they return.

Online shopping platforms, game shows and soaps are available for free. Does he expect Thai people to pay for them?
