BANGKOK: -- True Visions has notified the National Broadcasting and Telecommunications Commission (NBTC) that it will stop airing 11 channels after the cable broadcaster stopped broadcasting six channels last December.

 

Ms Supinya Klangnarong, one of the commissioners, said Wednesday that the 11 channels that will be blacked out include Discovery Science, BBC Entertainment, National Geographic, Cheebies, Discovery Kids, M, DMAX, EVE, Block A and Fashion.

 

Two of the six channels that stopped airing last month are HBOs and Cinemax.

 

Ms Supinya said that committee had not yet allowed True Visions to stop airing the 11 channels because the company has to submit its plan on how to compensate its subscribers who have subscribed to different packages offered by the company from three-month up to one-year and have paid in advance.

 

She said that the NBTC’s sub-committee would invite True Visions’ executives to explain its compensation plan on February 7.

Cancellations of channels comply with rules, says TrueVisions
By WATCHIRANONT THONGTEP
THE NATION

 

BANGKOK: -- TRUEVISIONS YESTERDAY insisted that its customers had been informed in advance about its plan to stop broadcasting Discovery Science, National Geographic and nine other channels, and it thus had complied with broadcasting regulations.

 

The country’s largest subscription-based TV broadcaster issued a statement on the matter after a member of the National Broadcasting and Telecommunications Commission (NBTC) revealed that TrueVisions was seeking approval for the cancellation of 11 channels. 

 

The other nine channels on the chopping block are: BBC Entertainment, Cbeebies, Discovery Kids, M, DMAX, EVE, Block A, Fashion1 and MUTV. The details on when the cancellations will become effective have not been disclosed yet.

 

In its statement, the company reasoned that the operators of those international channels wanted to discontinue their services in Thailand and other markets in Southeast Asia.

The words BBC and entertainment are a bit of an oxymoron.

Over your head maybe?

I and several friends have cancelled True. There are MUCH better real HD options available with MUCH more choice. I have been a UBC client for 15 years. They offered me a 50% discount!!!

I told them what I thought of that. Thailand needs a completely new system....

I agree that BBC Entertainment was rubbish. Ancient shows broadcast over and over again. It's no loss ( I did enjoy The Great British Bake Off on BBC Lifestyle though!). There is a new BBC channel but True Visions will not take it.

 

I now stream everything and get all UK channels. It's mainly drama, documentaries and current affairs I'm after!

Current Truevisions Platinum channel list:

TruevWebPlatinumHighlighted.jpg

 

This Platinum channel list is from the web site: http://www.truevisions.info/ช่องรายการทรู

The highlighted channels are not in the Gold channel list.

 

The photocopied list from the True shop was slightly different - no channel 557, but the web site says you get it.

Nobody in their right mind would put up with True anymore. They are rubbish

 

Get an IPTV set up

Just cancel it outright and request your refund (2,000 baht I think) for your set-top box.

Your subscription is a contract.

They broke the contract by cancelling major channels.

You are entitled to cancel it with no fees.

That's what I did and there were no problems at all.

They did try to offer me a discount, but I told them that the channels I wanted were no longer being offered so I longer wanted to subscribe.

Money back in 30 days.

I guess that I would be one to disagree that True Visions is a waist of money for me.  I have three boxes, pay for two, the third one is free.  I also have the Platinum Package, so my monthly charges is 2592.78 baht.  Yes they have cancelled HBO and replaced them with other channels, most of the channels that were replaced when they contracted with HBO.  However the re-runs that were constantly playing over and aver again on the HBO channels and cinemax are now playing on the replacement channels along with reruns of programs that were on the other channels before HBO.  There are actually some new series showing on the Sony channel.  But I mostly watch CNN and  live sports and they show sports live, all be it in the middle of the night.  I just watched the Welsh open Snooker final this morning, second session started at 0200, Bingham won in an extremely good match!  They show EPL, American football, Rugby, NBA, Baseball, and many more.

 

I have to have DSTV as any streaming options are out for me due to my remote location and one of the set top boxes is on 24/7 as I have them wired into my home stereo system, 6 speakers, and when not watching TV I use one of the music channels, channel 701,  which is non stop continuous soft hit music 24/7.  So I am listening to, and enjoying, either TV or music from True 24/7 and think that it is a wise investment for me.

 

And at my age, there are less re-runs and I never eat leftovers!
