    Default watching Thai tv/films in the UK

    My wife will be coming soon, hopefully. When she has stayed before she has had to do with watching Thai tv shows on youtube, are there any good sites/subscriptions for Thai tv and films available in the UK

    Netflix has got quite a lot of Thai series now, as I keep pointing out to my wife. Just go to Netflix and type in Thai. Lots of bingeing to be done. She never watches them though, she just sticks to YouTube and seems happy with it.

    I was overhearing some of the annoying whizz-bang-whee effects on one such show the other day and realised that my kids, on the other side of the room, used to watch programs with those kind of effects (e.g. Mr Tumble) but had now grown out of them... Why do Thai shows have them?

    But some of the Netflix Thai stuff looks reasonably good. You could probably watch it too at the same time.

    Thank's, we watched a bit of Thai Netflix when we were in Thailand, the misses likes the thai soaps and cartoons. The slap stick style thai stuff seems popular, I guess it's just a phase they're going through.

    My wife just uses YouTube for her soaps. They are available a couple of hours after airing in Thailand. As we’ve a smart tv, she can watch them in 55” HD.

    My mate down loaded the app, Live Net Tv, for me. It was mainly so I could get Sky sports, movies and Bt sports. So, I get all the movies and sports channels you get with Sky but I also get HBO and Cinemax etc etc. There is tv channels from Thailand, I have no idea what though as the Mrs just uses YouTube.

    'She Who Must Be Obeyed' uses Malimar TV. - https://www.malimar.tv
    It is American based but is very good. Costs US$ 149-99 per year to watch on the TV & computer.
    Haven't had any problems with them since we started using them - about 8 years +.
    Check out their website for their info.

    If you have a fire-stick you could download 'iptv smarters' app
    Then buy a subscription from: https://rapidiptv.me/#page-top

    It has 192 live Thai channels and over 300 UK channels

    The complete channel list is on the website above

    The only decent material on Thai TV are the adverts, the programming is dire. Very selective news coverage with almost no international, almost no debate, a government politician being interviewed is very rare. The bulk of the material appears to be steering the population from asking questions and keeping them doped up on quizz shows, singing contests, lakorn and what passes here for comedy. The lakorn makes Emmerdale look like Shakespeare, makes me ill just looking at it when a quick retreat upstairs is needed! Can anyone name a Thai documentary series of any quality, or one at all?

    Hi Elad
    Do you find that the Thai Channels work ok ?
    I have been using smarters for quite a while now and currently subscribe to something similar. Whilst I must admit, the saturday 3 o'clock kick offs is the main reason I subscribe the advertised Thai Channels were a bit of a bonus. Initially I found quite a few had nothing on at all, maybe down to time difference ? , some buffered badly, and a few were perfect. The perfect ones seemed to become less and less until eventually, after the latest server change, Thai channels disappeared completely.
    Like I say, football was my main reason for subscribing, although the video on demand movie and series section is also well used. Coupled with the wife having a malimartv subscription I wasn't too disappointed with the Thai section disappearing. However, if this has a good stable offering I would certainly look at it when my current subscription ends in August.


    Just noticed it has a vod movie section, does this get updated with latest releases ?

    I've only been using the Rapid subscription for two months now but it seems pretty stable to me. My wife only uses a hand full of the Thai channels and they work perfectly, every now and then you get a little buffering but i think that's normal when streaming online, plus i use a vpn so that can slow things a little. I think most of 192 do work from what I've seen.

    I'm not into football much so not sure about the 3 o clock kick off's, but it does have all the sports channels like sky and bt sports and a section of VIP sports.

    The movies on demand are updated and there's currently over 3,000 UK movies on there.

    I would suggest using the 'iptv smarters' app for the subscription because it offers a better menu and very easy to use once its set up.

    Here's a couple of pics taken of the TV screen:

    Hi, this looks interesting. Similar to DooTV we used to use a long time ago. Looks like the TV option is through a Roku box, I have a NowTV box which I believe is Roku. Any Idea if I could add this through my NowTV box? (sorry i'm not the best with technology)

    Also looked at the subscription plans. Do they automatically roll-over until you cancel or do they just stop depending on the duration you buy? Might sign up for a month to give it a try

    Thanks

    I think dootv actually changed to or merged with malimar. I may be wrong but certainly dootv seemed to disappear and then everything appeared on malimar.
    I have it set up on her laptop but also on our android box, am pretty sure there will be some way of getting onto a nowtv box

    Sorry toddmeister, giving you false info there, I totally forgot I have got an amazon firestick now not an android box - been a long day

    Hi toddmeister, if you pay monthly they don't roll over automatically, they stop. util you pay again. we use the monthly payment which we stop when the missus goes home for a couple of months.

    If you can bluetooth or can transmit from your computer/ tablet/ laptop/ phone direct to your tv (if able) can be watched that way as well. Siyapha has mallimar ap on her phone and tablet as well. as another option. same login used on them all. This one https://www.facebook.com/PentaTVThailand/ comes as a box like a Now box with stuff already accessible just needs a internet connection. Our friend paid £80 for it shipped from Thailand. Has ll the channels both live and recorded. apparently no further subscription needed.

    Hi

    You could buy a week trial for 7 euros and compare it with your current subscription before it expires in august. You can add several subscriptions to smarters.

    How long did it take for your current one to start buffering and losing channels etc ?
    Are the UK channels any good?
