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

Yes i find the Great British Bake Off and Come Dancing too challenging.

Just had a True Inno Hybrid+ box installed a couple of days ago. It was included in their 999 Baht fiber package.   My Samsung HD TV is a few years old and has a AA59-00801A remote.

Begining yesterday it looks like TrueVisions dialed down the color saturation by 50%, at least on the channels I watched (F1 race, MIA/NO). For the SEA/IND game it looks like they reduced a bit more. For comparison, I streamed it from the U.S. and the difference was very noticeable, as is every other streamed source on my TV.

^ I think it is because that the Government has asked them to do so because of the Royal Cremation this month?

 

Have a look at Bangkok Bank / Scb sites etc etc

- Oct 25 - 27, 2017 all radio & TV stations in Thailand must play the feed from Bangkok, NO advertising allowed during this period.

Jai Dee, Truevisions has a message in English stating to go to a website and it will list the programs unavailable from Oct. 13th to the 30th. Of course the website on FB is all in Thai language. Where can I find the list unavailable starting from the 13th in English? Thank you.

I have seen the same messages also and the unavailable's where all the True Channels, like channel 222,223, 559,560,561 etc etc so NOT for example Fox etc. Sorry I don't have a list

 

I also have seen a message that from the 2?th-29th ALL channels will have ONLY government approved content !

Yeh, they only tell you the channels unavailable from the 25th to 30th, but the English message on the tv mentions other channels unavailable from the 13th to the 30th and to know what these are, “True”refers you in English to a website with no English.

I called their call center, and after being transferred 4 times, I found out absolutely nothing that I didn’t already know. As Jai Dee wrote, the channels will turn to black. Also I was told that Truevisions does not have any websites in English language and the young lady had no idea about which channels starting from the 13th would be unavailable.

Try this website.

 

If you click on the date drop down menu and select your preferred dates (eg Friday 13th October) the programming should appear.

Here's an example of the programming for the English movie channels for Monday 16th October:

^ I think you're on to something because looking at the schedule for Oct 25th it looks like this

 

Look at Channels 236,237,238,239,240 (All True Channels) and their programming

Edit: But it doesn't show the "blackout" of the other (non True) channels !! Just have to wait and see ;)

I sent True an email requesting definition and got the following response with the table attached>

 

"

Yes, I am aware of the local situation.

 

It is interesting to see the 65" OLED/UHD/4K TVs on display on PowerBuy "toned down" (by a lot more than "40%").

 

Chargers v. New York Football Giants, 0-4 stinker. Ben McAdon'ts last game with the Cheesecake Factory menu?

Green Bay v. Dallas, OK 

KC v. Hou, better

 

Min v. da Bears, ugh

 

Thank god for streams and torrents.
