Re: How to Watch BBC and ITV in Thailand on your iPad, Android and Mac

Taken from a blog

For those British expats in Thailand who want to continue with their daily dosage of Coronation Street and Eastenders, there is a way for you watch all of the English channels here in Thailand.



There is a company called Expat TV who provide a service of streaming 11 British channels to your TV via the Internet. I tried their free trial offer earlier in the year but wasn’t 100% convinced. For this one you had to pay a monthly subscription so that you could watch on your computer. If you wanted to watch on your big TV then you needed to buy a box as well. I don’t like watching on the computer so I didn’t do anything when my trial ended. But then, the other day I received another email about a new 5 day free trial. This time for a web player for Mac, iOs and Android devices. It sounded interesting so I signed up. Nothing to lose as it was free.



For this trial I used my iPad. As I have an Apple TV as well, I was able to send every channel to my big screen TV with little effort. On the first screen you see a button for each of the channels. I noticed that there was a new one for kids called CBBC which wasn’t on the earlier trial. Just click any of the buttons and after a short buffering time, you start to see almost live TV from the UK. The quality of the picture was great, even on the big screen. I hardly had any drop outs, but of course that depends on how good your Internet connection is. But, this wasn’t enough alone to convince me to sign up for a subscription. The clincher for me was a new feature for the web player package. If you click on TV Guide and then choose a channel, you then get a programme list like the above. This is basically the past 24 hours. As the UK is in a different time zone, this allows you to timeshift and watch whatever you like within a 24 hour period.



The  price for this service is 600 Baht per month or 500B if you pay for a year in advance. You also need a good internet package that can handle a speed of at least 3MB. Of course, there is no guarantee that your Internet will be good enough. So, if you are interested in testing it out, then contact Expat TV and ask them for a free 5 day trial of the web player package. I am certainly tempted this time. I dropped satellite TV a couple of years ago and so at the moment I don’t pay for any monthly subscriptions. It might actually be nice to have British TV back. However, the question is, what is there to watch? I haven’t seen Eastenders in more than 20 years. Is it worth 500 Baht? It’s certainly less than any package by True Visions. Also less than the BBC License Fee. I will let you know if I decide to go ahead.

Thanks Thaiga and I'll look into that and give that a trial if I can.
Newsnight, Strictly Come Dancing, Dramas, Documentaries etc. Great !
Eastenders - 20 years is not long enough to miss it - IMHO
I use a 3G aircard for internet so don't know what to do on that front.
TOT have a line outside the house, not connected.
VERY interesting.
Cheers.

This service is just great!

I signed up back in June and have been using the windows player. Now they have got the new Android player I have been using it on my TV with a cheap Android TV box that I bought from Pantip (3-4,000 baht).

Love the new guide, it certainly beats any VPN or proxy service I have used previously.

Using it on my Macs, enjoying it while working glued to my online job. I heard there will be a special version coming for the Mac. but the version as it is now works fine on my new MacMini and even on an older MacBook Pro, and the most astonishing is that it works although I’m in a tiny village the deepest Isaan, almost in Laos.

True 3G aircard about B1,100 to buy. Then B440 for 3 months and B780 monthly thereafter. Much better than the DTAC version for me at Dan Kwian/Chok Chai area anyway. However, I have a DTAC aircard you can have if you want to try it. Can leave it at Walrus or Check in 4 u.
Jason, Terry and Chris.
Sounds great. Will have a good look at it.
Thaiga. Thanks for the post. Looks brilliant. Was starting to consider True Gold but even that only has BBC World News which I find a dreadful Channel. Prefer Al Jazeera in fact. But the very best of BBC/ITV programmes are well worth watching.
Concerned about my www strength and personal technical hang ups - but will progress it.

Good morning Thaiga
Yes the website thaiexpat.tv looks brilliant.
I'm going to talk to TOT first about getting a line into the house for better Internet speed.
Then I'll go ahead after Christmas. Is there a local office for thai expat tv ?
I gather this TV box has to be routed through the computer to the TV
I like to keep it simple so would it be an idea to get an ipad or something like that to dedicate for tv use ?
Sorry to bother you.
I'll go ahead after Xmas if it all looks good and when I have the line.
Fingers crossed.
Thanks....
PS to BF - sorry I get the joke on re-reading. Will have dtac and true aircard spare if all goes well. Cheers.

Roger,

Many smartphones have a feature which enables the phone to act as a wifi hotspot.  For 399 baht you get unlimited internet service. The catcher is if you go over 2 gigs in data the speed drops down to reg 3g.  :-[

And any idea from when on the 2 GB are counted:

- the logging-in to the web,

- the beginning of the day,

- the beginning of the month etc.?

Re: Thai Expat TV ♦ update ♦ Christmas promotion deal
« Reply #16 on: December 09, 2012, 02:36:59 PM »
  from a blog



The other day I wrote a review of Thai Expat TV which allows you to watch British TV in Thailand. I had used one of their free 5-day trials to watch channels like BBC and ITV on my iPad here in Thailand without using a VPN. As I already have an Apple TV, I was able to send the streaming picture to my large screen TV. Quality was excellent and the signal only dropped out if my Internet became slow. (They recommend at least 3MB for this not to happen.) Apart from being able to watch on the big screen, the iPad version (also works on Android and Mac) allows me to timeshift by being able to pick anything to watch over the last 24 hours for each channel. This immediately solves the time zone problem.

Despite this I was still undecided about going for a subscription once my free trial finished. I don’t really watch TV that much and wasn’t sure if I would get my money’s worth. But then, I got some favourable recommendations from subscribers in the comments of my review blog. Then to top that, I got an email from Thai Expat TV with this Christmas promotion deal. Use the promo code XMAS until 20 December to get 3 months for only 1,199 Baht (includes 200 Baht set-up fee). The normal price is 1,940 Baht for three months. This new monthly price of 399 Baht sounded too tempting to me. So, here I am now typing this blog and with the BBC on my TV in the background. I have had it on a lot the last few days and I’m loving it. If you are thinking about doing this then make sure you ask Thai Expat TV them for a 5-day free trial first in order to check to see if your internet speed is reliable enough.

TOT won't even survey the signal at my house now - even though they have a line to a pole outside.
They say line is fully drawn now. Will try CAT.
Baby F - yes True signal from a dish is ok for TV was ok on my house - used to have it. Can I get internet that way ? Good enough for Thai Expat TV
Still fancy BBC and ITV - a bit of ! Very much.
Thanks

 Watching British TV in Asia & Australia Just Got Easier

 

This week came some big news about a major upgrade to their mobile & PC software. You can now watch TV on demand for the last seven days. When you open the software, you can choose to either watch live by clicking on one of the channel icons (above), or click on the programme guide to see what is on offer over the past seven days (below). I like how you can click on a “genre” if there is a particular kind of show that you want to watch. Shows not in bold are the ones that haven’t aired yet, so you can see what is coming up.



some good news this week is that you can now watch it in most countries in Asia. These include: Hong Kong, Indonesia, India, Japan, Cambodia, Singapore, Thailand, Taiwan, Vietnam, Korea, Laos, Myanmar, Philippines, Brunei, United Arab Emirates, New Zealand & Australia. If you are an expat living outside one of these countries, you can request for your country to be added.
