IPTV Thailand -expat internet television

Recommended Posts

Just wanted to see any feedback on this company from other users or better see if I can get them to respond.

I ordered a one year subscription to their UK sky TV service, with all boxes and postage was 13,000 baht paying COD.

It worked like a dream for a month then suddenly blocked all channels.

have emailed all weekend and no reply, when i accesses the back end set up on the box i found they had preloaded it with only a month of subscription.

just wondered if anyone else found the same or its a genuine mistake on their part and they have just not checked their emails for a while..........although i know i have probably just bought a lemon.crazy.gif

Another one gets caught,if its the company i am thinking of,,there was

a guy posting on here a week or two ago,with the same problem,sold

You should have went with ilikeHD, no boxes to buy,but you could add

their app to your android box that you bought,the most you can loose

with ilikeHD is 500 THB if the do go belly up,as you pay monthly,no

contract,miss a month if you want,easy.

This is safer, but the dodgy geezer running IPTV is the same person that runs ilikeHD. As IPTV he simply sells the boxes with access to the same channels that you can get by signing up with ilikeHD.

You are dealing with the same guy. He has a chequered history, and is basically selling pirated streams.

Anyone who pays this company ( IPTV OR ilikeHD) for anything longer than a month at a time is asking for a battering, as one day (tomorrow or in a few years, it's not possible to predict which) he will be fleeing.

Here's an interesting forum from a few years back where he posts as "Edirect" and crows about being the world's biggest pirate, not having been busted or in jail, and laughing because he can see the CTH building from his apartment...

Buyer beware!!!!!!!

The guy who runs IPTV doesn't run IlikeHD, he simply nicks the streams from them. He's the same scammer who ran Maige TV and a few other scam ventures.

I suspect though that IlikeHD also is not legit, but at least they have done the work to get the streams, while Mr Alan just copies the code.

Well I'll take your word for it, but on the forum I've linked to the signature of the poster is

"IPTV Thailand

I thought this would be an unlikely thing to put if you are nicking the stream from them.

You may be correct. Just went to the website of iLikeHD and their website is a copy from that of IPTV Thailand.

So probably iLikeHD is also run by Alan Reeks, and a reason to be very wary.

Ilikehd channels often offline, especially Nat Geo and Nat Geo Wild. Caveat emptor!

thanks for the info guys.

now i know who to find, which was one of the purposes of my post.

I will catch up with Mr Reeks and report back.

I agree buyer beware, but this is a case of seller beware because he has ripped off the wrong guy this time.

It remains a total mystery to me why victims of this person don't report him to the Thai police, Thai consumer protection, Thai immigration and the Thai revenue department.

At least one of that lot would be interested in him.

I think the point is, as the OP has said just up here ^^, the service is actually quite good, especially when you compare it to "real" Thai companies like GMM-Z and CTH who have just perpetrated a withdrawal of service and breaking of contracts worse than anything the owner of ilikeHD has done. (See GMM-Z threads where people have signed up for a year in advance, to be told a month later the service is stopping, and you need to install a completely different kind of dish to get the replacement service).

So most people, (especially those who don't get caught up with the Thai IPTV scam of buying a redundant overpriced generic android box and just pay 450B for a month's service at a time from ilikeHD) are pretty happy with it.

To be frank I've had a month's service from IlikeHD in the past, and may sign up again in a month or so.

I am just very aware that this service is (a) dodgy and (b ) likely to disappear overnight when the law catches up with the guy.

As long as you are aware of this and don't pay too much in advance you'll be fine. And just buy a generic android box if you want to use the ilikeHD service-you don't need an IPTV one and you can view ilikeHD on a PC or Mac, so you don't need an android box at all.

Who watches tv on his pc or Mac? You need a hdmi cable and you don't get to use a remote. Just buy a cheap android box and install the Ilikehd app. Or if you have an Xbox fire up its browser and use your controller as a remote.

Btw anyone who thinks Ilikehd is good has certainly low standards. But it beats having no (uk) tv at all.

Maybe I missed something, but isnt this the same guy that people have been complaining about for 10 years or more?

I use my PC for everything. It is connected to my big TV and my amp via an HDMI lead and I have a Windows remote control that I bought for about GBP10 15 years ago that controls all media playback through ZoomPlayer and FooBar (would also work on VLC etc). Also my wireless mouse works fine over the distance required.

What nobody mentions is that iliketv will give you only live TV, no catchup, so it's ok if you want to watch prime time tv at three in the morning!

BTW anybody know any other service apart from Thai expat tv that does do catchup?
