Cable TV in Phuket

Recommended Posts

I have Rawai Cable and no more digital signal since yesterday. Called Rawai Cable today and they told me that Phuket has no more Cable TV as BKK has cut the signal for Phuket. Seems the only alternative is Satellite, which sucks. Long time ago I had True and every time when it rained or it was windy the signal was cut, and when their "Technicians" came they said its because of the trees that were 100 meters away from the house.thumbsup.gif

I would like to avoid satellite after my experiences with True, any suggestions?

Thank you

I find that hard to believe. We have Karon Cable which is supplied by Phuket Cable Tv and as of right now we have TV service. Mind you we are on Analogue (as far as I know). But it's quite a good range, so why not ask Rawai Tv about that service.

Sorry, forgot to mention that it is the digital channels that are gone.

Yes the analogue is working, but as the switch all the time from Astro Sport 3 to Astro Sport 4, which is rubbish unless your are a badminton fan. Not much football or many sports events coverage any more.

Download "Kodi" then "TVADDONS". Free tv and movies. No adds or commercials. I have for American tv. HBO,Showtime,etc...all channels. NBC, ABC,LIFETIME,FX,FOX......ALL OF THEM. You can download for foreign tv also. Italian, GB.,etc. Never pay for cable again.

Any recent experience with PulseTV ?- their channel range looks really good!  *%$* I've just realised it's yet another internet system NOT CABLE

 

I have PulseTV since the end of July and I am reasonable happy with it. Since I recently changed my Internet package to a bigger download, it is fine. 92% happy but with their online chat, when a problem occurs its usually fixed within 10-15 minutes 24/7

I've had Pulse TV since August this year, and am very happy with it.   Key to it being successful is your ISP.   When I first got it, I was using True, however there was a succession of problems, all of which were attributable to True's service (or lack of).

 

On the recommendation of Pulse, I changed to AIS Fibre, and what a difference that has made.   I have the 50Mb down/10Mb up package, and whilst the download is consistently on spec, upload typically hovers around 2Mb.   Installing AIS Fibre also gave me the full range of Thai channels for free as a bonus.

 

Pulse, because the programming are distributed from their BKK servers, in theory only needs a download speed minimum of 3Mb, though the more you have the better.   I also like the ability to watch programmes up to 24 hours after their original airing.

 

Pulse on-line 'chat' service support is also very good.

 

The other thing with Pulse is that you can have it on up to 4 different devices.   I have it via a set top box to a large LED TV, it's on my desktop computer in my office, and it's on my smartphone.   Can't think of what to put the 4th option on.
