Have now happily retired in LOS but miss my favourite Australian tv shows.

 

Any Aussies here or other nationalities that are watching Aussie tv from Thailand?

 

If you are how are you doing this, by use of VPN or other ways?

 

Any helpful replies are appreciated?

Well we get the ABC Asia/Pacific, it's on most cable TVs I've come across at apartments & hotels throughout Thailand. I watch it often and it's very good, get the ABC news, plenty of quiz shows, weekly serials, some educational stuff, some movies & documentaries, and of course sports, which dominate the weekends. Between ABC, Fox & Aljazeera you'll get a very good cross section of current events & daily news.

Thank you for your help. Already watch Australia network and it does indeed offer some good programs.

 

It does not however offer all of the shows that I would like to watch. So I am interested if anyone from Australia who is now living here is watching Australian channels over the internet with the aid of a proxy or VPN or indeed by another method.

 

Many Americans and English expats currently watch television from their respective countries by these methods.

 

So interested if any Aussies are doing the same and if so how are they doing it?

I've tried watching TV via internet in Thailand but seems the internet access is not good enough, that's my experience anyway, everything too damn slow, but if others are having success at it then I'd like to know more too. So I'll keep an eye on this thread and see how it develops.

I think virtually all of them would have it, if the hotel has cable TV, then odds are they'll have the ABC channel. I can't vouch for every hotel in Patts but I've stayed at many and they've all had it.

You could try a service like http://www.AustralianTelevision.info .

 

 

Thank you for the link. Have checked it out and seems very good.

 

Have you or anyone you know actually used it and if so what is your opinion of the service?

 

Reliable, fast speed, easy to set up and use etc?

^I don't mind the old Australia Network. It's not like home with a lot of choices but you get the basics.

Where else could you get a game of AFL or ARL with no bloody ads? The news is certainly better than a lot other English-speaking networks.

 

You might want to go to the ABC website where you can download lots of stuff.

Some good sites to look at and download stuff from.

 

diwana.org (Has a multitude of Australian and New Zealand shows.)

 

aus.sierules.com (Aussie rules content.)

 

I have tried both and quality is excellent.

There are a few Optus satelites up there. The optus C1 is the satelite that foxtel uses for Australia. I'd say you'd be able to pick it up from Thailand. You'd need a set top box (easy to buy). The hard part would be unblocking the signal. As foxtel doesn't provide an international service you'd have to hack into it the naughty way. Would be worth asking to one of the cable tv guys in Thailand.

 

Then you could watch Home and Away and Neighbours everyday!!!!

    • For those that don't know, I did Friday meetings before many years ago,  I feel like we are missing a regular meeting for members,  I am aware guys meet at PA affiliated bars. But I want to start meeting people again, I'm inviting the guys following my YouTube also.

      The meetings is a chance to get to meet each other,  I plan to be at every meeting, I also have Dean from Dive bar that has offered to help out with a crawl after.
      The meetings will be  Monday  6 pm - 8 pm each week.  (The improvised bar crawl will commence at 8 p.m.  Dean will make his own plans for that.)

      Due to low numbers of people in town, I will start the meetings in our bars to help our girls and managers, please check back often incase things are changed.  I will be sharing the love around town later, but Soi 6 is first on my list (including bars that are friendly competition)   
      If bar owners want us to have a meeting at their bar,  they need to have a minimum of 10 girls.  I'm not dragging people to empty bars for favours.
      Please help us invite other members, it takes a while to get momentum.
      Monday 6 pm - 8pm  (then bar crawl after)
      21st March - Playpen Soi 6
      28th March - Night wish bar Soi 6
      4th April - Toy Box bar Soi 6
      11th April - Repent Soi 6
      18th April - where angels play Soi 6
      25th April -  (next bar we have open)

      2nd May - (next bar we have open)
      9th May - Cooters bar soi 6 
      16th May - Hot shots bar Soi 6
      23rd May - (next bar we have open)
      30th of May - Lust soi 6 
      6th of June - Illuzion
      13th of June - (next bar we have open)

      I look forward to meeting people again.
