That's one way of watching these channels. Another way is to install a proxy vpn. You can watch iplayer and live TV. Another is to install ilikehd TV and chose from the subscriptions available from 40 baht for 3 hours to 250 baht for a month. Quality is far better.
I've been using this app to watch BBC TV and iPlayer on my android phone in Thailand - Cloud VPN. https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...pass.vpn&hl=en .
It's free to download and free and simple to use (no ads either) .
I used the Cloud VPN app today in Surin to watch Match of the Day on iPlayer on wifi in a small coffee shop. Worked a treat on my Samsung Galaxy phone.
Any idea what net connection they had.
I have a TOT std land-line, a TOT Fibre Optic line and a 3BB Fibre Optic.
And it doesn't work on any of them.
I'll call in there tomorrow for a coffee and ask.
Small update Dylan.
Went in to town last night and connected my phone to the wifi in the sports bar, installed Cloud VPN on it, and it worked perfectly.
Connected to the Cloud with my phone on one of the networks I have at home when I got back, worked perfectly.
So it must be a config problem in the little Android Tablet TV thing I have...... that's me occupied for the next few days.
I've recently bought a small box for 2800Baht from Lazada, which attaches to your TV.The box has KODI software with its associated Add-ons pre-installed, which allows you to stream live TV,movies and TV series directly to your TV. Any programme including BBC, ITV etc, even premium pay for view channels - SKY Sports and movie channels.
All you need is a decent internet connection.

Gary can the android system be upgraded
Just reading the spec and in the Q&A someone asks if it is rooted, the response is no but it is supported.
Also noticed it's £57 now, I got mine at £54.
I deleted a few add ons and installed a few of my choice. Alos added a few app like Terarrium TV and Showbox.

I know this thread hasn't been updated in a while but with reference to Thai Expat TV, they were arrested a couple of months ago and the service shut down. They had been operating successfully for quite some time and they sent out bills that were very 'official' looking with barcodes for payment at 7-11 and everything. VPN software can allow you to disguise your logging in point to look like another country so for those desperate to see some TV from Blighty, the TV channel websites will work if you are using a VPN.
I think there was a separate thread about them biting the dust, other similar options appear to be still available.
I notice the BBC Iplayer now needs you to sign up, imagine this is the clamping down on non-license payers maybe.
