    You can use Expat Shield (or slightly more complicated, Your Freedom) to watch BBC iPlayer, 4OD, etc. God knows why you'd want to though. Football is generally available online, too.

    Yep
    i got true installed in vientaine box and dish fully installed was about 15000 baht i went for the platinum card package but it doesnt give you all that much more than the gold card just more cartoons for the kids forget what it costs per month now but usually just top it up 3 months at a time , pretty sure its pirated from Thailand but could be wrong there , anyway the guys called mr sattellite had a few mates deal with him and seems straight enough PM me when you arrive

    Doesn't Takky have a big stake in True? And he's one of Hun Sens best mates - more likely a local liscensing deal

    Get the Malaysian Astra service rather than True, as True are fucking terrible at everything they turn their hand to.

    Agree 100% that True are morons but do check you can get Astra that far North - if I remember right it will not be a good signal - ask JSat
