How do I get it on my Smart TV other than casting from a tablet?

Via the Tv's web browser ,  but you need to be a 3BB internet customer to login and view anything.

Won't forgive True for conning me on their Premier league package. Tiphanee has all the live games in their 3600 pa package. True wanted an additional 3600 pa  over and above their internet and TV package at 900 BHT pm so I was paying for PL twice!

  3BB is in my Thai partner's name, so when I need to put in Username and Password will it accept it in English?

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. 

The Xiaomi Mi box is an Android box using Android 8.1.

hi  i am not familiar with the smart tv gimmicks .. but it seems they are just internet tv options  .. which is still limited to a specific area of tv

what i use is my desktop computer and netflix for movies also avail are many other usa options that have thai subs or dubbed movies  

 yes your wife wants thai tv programs .. the closest it comes is youtube altho limited .. i think that there should be other options to use with pc 

 

a quick gaggle search   i am not familiar with any of these so do your research

I found shield awful. Way better out there old chap.

I have a Nvidia Shield, several Amazon firesticks including the latest 4k firestick and several old android boxes.

 

Shield is by far the best of them all.

 

Would be interested which devices you believe are better than the Shield?

If I  drop True and go with one of these boxes can I still get BBC,  History,  NGC,  CNBC  etc.  etc.  or do I end up with just better movies?

Nvidia Shield is about the most expensive box on the market around 10K Baht, so it better be good then, but I agree it is a decent box.

 

Amazon fire sticks are just overhyped cheap <deleted> , and there are a lot of boxes between a Firestick and an Nvidia shield that work very well, but cost half of a shield.

 True doesn't con you, they paid multimillion bucks for the rights to stream them in Thaiiand, while Tipmanee steals the streams from True.

 

Who you think is conning who then?

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!

Dowload the net live TV apk and HD movies and you can watch everything including Thai no need to pay anything you can also download APKs but you need to download bluestack on your laptop first. Great for when you travel or stay at a hotel. I left true four years ago. I laugh at friends that still use Sky in London.

One thing is that these devices are made to work specifically for and licensed to support native 4K on Netflix, Hulu, Prime, HBO etc and have several classes of high output audio. 
 

I’ve had several cheaper boxes before I landed on the fire stick/shield combo and they are flawless for VPN streaming. 
 

Haters gonna hate, and most of the haters probably never had one.
