I think everyone will be cancelling their subscription Monday 20th May. It is too expensive to keep going over the summer especially when they show garbage. Wimbledon I can watch online for the odd match. The Lions tour I can watch in a pub. They don't show cricket anyway.

I will keep True for my 3 year old as he loves Disney Junior Channel at 150bt per month,

Just hope CTH can get cable out to where I live in Pathum Thani before ext season.

So do we know where you will able to get CTH? I live in Pattaya on the darkside.

Also will you be able to have both true and CTH hooked up at the same time, if I decide to retain true?

And how much a month will it be for CTH approx, and what other channels will they have apart from the 8 sports channels?

Cheers.

No-one knows the details yet. That's the point. But I can't see what would stop you having both.

If True show absolutely no PL......anyone up for a mass subscription cancellation at Siam TV?

My missus says she'll miss CNN......yeah right 1,750 a month for CNN......dream on dear.

It sounds like she has landed on her feet with you.

My true is gone today, doing reno's on the house, they want 500 baht to relocate the dish and in 10 days time we move into the other house on the farm where i have just added on a new room, they then want another 500 baht to move the dish, then when we have lifted the main house and built underneath they want another 500 baht to move the dish back, so as they look like not covering premier league again it is not worth me paying.

Why you didn't do it yourself?

Workers moved the dish, so i put it back up myself in a different position put in password and after umpteen attempts no decent signal and 3 days frustration gave up and called true.

Not according to my local satellite shop who insisted that there was no such thing as a cable splitter, to put signals from one source through two diferent boxes (or in your case, potentially, two different sources/boxes into one TV input if thas all you have. My wife also agreed that what I was trying to do was impossible. ["Thailand not the same as European people teelak"]. Bought one from the UK and impressed her with my voodoo magic!

You can buy cheap cable splitters in Big C now. I guess we can thank GMM boxes for that.

PS True seem to be trying to withdraw their EPL service pixel by pixel.

Dont know what the reception has been like where you are but in southern SiSaket it has been rubbish in the last two weeks. Atmospherics I think but much more constant bad reception now than in the storm-clouded rainy season. It's a case of guess where the ball went next, every 5 seconds!

If you have two sources why would you need a splitter?

You need a degree in engineering to understand that.

On your other point, straight after the QPR game last night the football went off air when there was an hour left to show womans tennis, that has never happened before.

The only thing I am clear on is that this is going to be a mess.

Instead of spending time bullshitting about how the loss of EPL will not hurt them, perhaps True execs should spend time a bit more creatively thinking about alternatives like buying repeat rights from CTH. Some of us who find some utility from other True channels but nowhere near 1,700 bahts worth of utility might be tempted to keep their boxes.

[Chicog - yes you are right - feeds out of TV boxes to TVs are usually HDMI or Component (multicolour), rather than coax. So you might conceivably need an adapter to connect two boxes to the same TV but it would not be what's called a cable splitter which is usually only used to describe coax cable adapters. Back to university to get that engineering degree for me]
