No more Doc Martin, ITV Asia has been replaced by Thrill.

Having a flick through the channels, there seems to be a few minor changes.

Coach trip is classic, very funny watching all the bickering and the comments when the red and Yellow cards are dished out.

Home Cable to go Digital within the next couple of months.Each household will be issued with a new box.There will be 120 channels for view and the cost increase will be 49 baht per week.At this stage they are unable to let us know the choice of channels but hope that ITV Granada will be back.This information was given to me this morning as I spoke directly with the Manager of Home Cable.

I am now toying with the idea of telling the cable company to buggar off , one tv at CC is already True so might as ell have it on em all ,,, cable can be a sh*te picture and to just drop channels willy nilly isnt really cricket IMO .....especially when its the best English speaking one ,, fed up of the crap football commentary as well

I think the upgrade to cable digital TV will offer other features such as movies-on-demand and TV show recording/playback services plus the EPL, which CTH have the rights from 2014. I hope ITV Asia is included in the 120 channels.

I'm missing my daily fix of Corry.....also Doc Martin to make me laugh.....what with the exchange rate sinking every day and now this.....2013 is proving a bad year so far. :(
Hopefully,it wont be too long before Granada and the Pound Sterling are back.....probably more chance of Granada.

When living in Scotland I was a loyal fan of Faulty Towers. One of my favorite characters was Manuel. Always wondered what happened to him. Then I discovered he was making pies for Chern Chims.

Worst case scenario, if you have a UK VPN connection you can always connect to ITV player and watch a stream :pirate:

Funnily enough I did see Martin Clunes as I was leaving the country a couple of months ago, in front of me in the immigration queue at Swampy. It was definitely him.... I'd know those ears anywhere! He was on the same flight as me, quickly lost him though as he was heading for 1st class, me Economy.

Clicked on the link to CTH, where a pages shows all 120 channels, ITV Asia aint there, I think its gone for good. :(

CTH will get their investment back for the EPL, with the pay per view options.

Wow thanks for the link Svein.

So are these the 120 channels that tomboy mentioned, or is that a mere coincidence number, does anyone know..
