Thanks guys, but that one doesn't help.
What do you really need BB? Many of the guys I work with travel extensively as I do, and as such use numerous sites for various channels - I can get some advice if you give specifics.

Maybe I have the same requirements as BB, at least in terms of the non-sport channels. What was so appealing with ThaiExpatTV was the ability to watch programmes on demand (up to a week of do after being broadcast). If the alternative is only to be able to watch a programme when it's being broadcast, would rule out about 80% of the programmes for me due to the time difference. Thanks

Then anything else that I can fit in around them. There are always good series coming along.

I suggest you look at the IPTV options which have all and more than Expat and 365 had and less than Bht1,000 per month. Their servers are outside Thailand ( where yours truly were operating from) so No Thai Govt problems.

AS a stop gap for BB and Dannie Boy to get their Corro/ITV fix until they find a company that wants to charge them for it, register at the ITV hub provided you disable any adblocker and use a VPN, you can watch for free or download the STV app and watch on there. No buffering and programmes available on catchup, maybe 28 days ? I can't remember.

Same goes for BBC using the iplayer but looks like that will end soon according to the media.

Thanks Pete, it's not what I want. I'm fast coming to the conclusion that our TVs can go to the recycle man. They're no longer of any use to me :cry: . I don't mind paying, but money can't buy what I want.
TV's still good for movies and the PS4 BB, T.I.T as they say, a new fiddler is just around the corner to answer every bodies needs...

Not "free" then is it as the topic specifically requests free streaming sites!!!

Coronation Street is available on ITV Choice, which is carried by the local Hua Hin cable TV company.

Football is by no means comprehensive, but I usually get to see at least one EPL game a week, and often an EFL game as well. These are on the Burmese Skynet sports channels, which also show other European live football.

Unfortunately there's no EPG so program times have to be researched elsewhere. But for 2,500 baht a year I can put up with that.

Website itv-choice.com says 2 days. "From the 18th May 2015, the residents of Coronation Street are moving to a new time slot on ITV Choice.  For the first time, ITV Choice will catch up with Coronation Street within two days of the UK transmission". I don't watch it so don't know if it's still current.

No, sorry. Management has designated this thread for suggestions to replace ExpatTV and 365 Sport which were pay services. This thread now has a dual purpose apparently. Pete :cheers:
