I’m finally cutting the True Visions cord and...

Recommended Posts

After 15 years I’m finally cutting my True Visions platinum package and will get a Xiomi HD 4K box for my tv and I’m not sure how I will get Thai TV to the TV my wife watches. It’s a smart tv and house is 3bb internet wired. 
 

Any suggestions on how to access the Thai TV channels

I would advise against a xiomi, as I hear that you are very limited to the streaming sources. 

If you read up on them, you may find that I'm wrong, 

But I would advise you changing to a amizon firestick, or android tv box. 

There are several Apk's available on both, that will allow you to watch Thai TV. 

Kraken TV is the best at the moment. 

You will be spoiled for choice for Western TV and movies , but thailand is a little bit obscure when in comes to the international streaming scene. 

For that reason, I would also recommend the new streaming box from true. 

I believe its free at a true store if you have true Internet, and allows you to stream all Thai satellite channels for free through an Internet connection, as long as your Internet provider is true. 

I heard this from a true rep last week, but it's possible that ais have a similar promotion.

There's a couple simple options available:

 

http://cloudtv.3bb.co.th/tvonline/

1) This website is not promoted by 3BB at all, but you can easily view all Thai TV channels for free. You can also cast the video from your device (phone, tablet, PC) to your smart TV.

 

2) Get yourself a satellite dish plus one of the cheap (~700Baht) GMMZ receiver boxes from Home Pro or elsewhere. You will then have unlimited free access to all Thai TV channels, there is no subscription required. You can find a cheap satellite install guy to come help, just drive around town and visit any small shop with 10~20 satellite dishes on their roof.

 

There's little difference between xiaomi and other android streaming boxes apart from speed. They tend to be similar and very rudimentary in function, and rarely get firmware updates after 6 months on the market. I've probably still got 2 or 3 (including a MiBox) stashed away somewhere which we never use anymore. Unless you are opting for the pricier and well supported Nvidia Shield, you may be disappointed. Apple TV is generally a better UI and experience, though you may want to wait for the new model which is likely to be announced in the coming months. However, if you are interested in, ehem, 'free' movie and tv streams, Apple doesn't allow such things, so Android is probably the way to go in that case - it does require a degree of technical prowess to install the necessary software tho.

 

Thanks..how do you get the sign in password for the 3bb cloudtv..same as my 3bb Internet ?

yup, just login with your 3bb member details.

 

Fun fact, once you are logged in, the cloudtv page works on other networks too, not just 3bb.

I dumped True years ago and opted for an Android TV Box. I have had many brands but none holds a candle to the Nvidia Shield.

My Shield is 3 years old and has been updated to Android 9. Nvidia does a great job keeping the box current.

It will depend on where in the country you are as to how big an antenna you need for Digital Terrestrial TV

some places are still not really covered and never will be.

there is a web site to help find your nearest transmitter location,frequencies in use antenna pointing direction.

Also dumped True and now have TX3Mini box.  Has hundred of films which stream exceptionally well plus all news and what I call soap chanels, including the Thai ones.  Sometimes they can occasionally freeze, but if I come out and re-engage, 9 times out of 10 we are back in business.  The selection of films is astronomical and it cost 250 baht a month!
