Does True Visions have the Champions League

Recommended Posts

I have noticed that True Visions don't show La Liga any more. They lost the EPL a long time ago but will they show the Champions League?

He_ll's teeth. You raise an interesting and disturbing question!

After half an hour of research I have this horrible conclusion that they are not carrying it. According to Wiki, the Champions League for Thailand is now carried by Bein Sport, which is channel 676 on True Visions (my Gold package). So I turn to the online programme guide which shows Bein Sport carrying lots of reasonably interesting stuff on Wednesday 16th September, but not any UEFA Champions League stuff. The nights of Tuesday 15th and Wednesday 16th are the dates of the first round proper. If I look back on the schedule Bein Sport did not carry the qualifying round. I would have looked for Manu's game at Brugges had I not been travelling and alarm bells would have rung sooner.

The Wiki information covers the changes of operator to Bein and shows that they will transmit the Champions League in Spain and some other countries. It does not state that Bein will show Champions League in Thailand.

My True Visions magazine for August made no mention of it and the September version has curiously not yet arrived. The TV marketing on the website makes zero mention of the CL on any of the packages, but does parade much lesser competitions.

I hope I'm wrong, but instincts tell me that this is all very Thai-like and fishy!

I'll let this sit a couple of days to see if anyone else has info (hopefully I'm panicking unnecessarily). If nothing I'll phone them - with my request to cancel 2 grands worth of monthly subs immediately if I get the wrong answer!

Of course some of the matches will be shown free to air and ManU fans have ManU TV showing on True (but possibly only replays). Those with a decent enough internet connection will be able to find some ITV no doubt.

$hit! Looking on the bright side - it's the major reason I buy True plus receive CTH free. The savings will fund my hotel and travel expenses to Ubon where I think I'll find it for key Arsenal nights

To add to what SantiSuk said, it was reported BeIN has the rights for La Liga in Thailand too. Match Day 2 in, still no broadcast of Liga matches.

If BeIN and True were to continue this bizzare trend with UCL, I am afraid we are left in the mercy of internet stuff to fix our UCL needs.

Let's hope BeIN and True resolve this soon.

Generally, BeIn provide excellent coverage of all the major leagues in the home zone. I'd be happy if they started in Asia too with their full service.

Im sure it will be available one way or another,possibly with Bein selling it off to others.

Errrr .... think you will find that we always get past the group stages - think we are only beaten by Real in the number of years we have got to the knock-out stages (but we are certainly up there among the most successful.

Welcome to the threads, but try to do better with yer facts!

I'm relying on it!

Why ?

CTH have as far as I'm concerned provided a decent enough service especially for the price.

Because my condo doesn't have CTH. Hopefully True will regain the rights for 2016/17.

I think you could be disappointed again sadly.

Especially as CTH and GMM have their little deal on the go.
