    CTH and EPL

    Any report on the coverage of EPL by CTH before I make my decisions about True Visions?

    A compensatory factor yesterday for not being able to watch the football was that I could see the Wobblies get hammered by the ABs and then a superb game of women's volleyball between US and Japan, but as the season hots up I think I'll need my dose of prima donnas, divers, and ref-abusers.

    At least Forest may be on TV next season.

    If you use the F4 button (directly beneath the red On/Off button) on the remote, you can toggle to English. Took me a while to work this one out also (works on some of the other English language channels that are dubbed into Thai).

    I miss the English preamble and half time discussion that True broadcast, but the quality of the CTH coverage of the games is the same. Overall, a good move changing from what was costing me over 2000 baht a month for the True Gold HD package, to 900 baht for CTH.

    Not as many movie channels to watch, but I inevitably watch downloaded movies/tv shows in HD anyway. Like having Sky News in HD also.

    Thanks for that - my eyesight is so shit i would never have got that without your advice.
    I'll watch todays games with English commentary.

    Agree as well about the coverage of the matches, and for less than half the price.

    Could someone post a pic of thier remote with an arrow pointing to the button?

    I thought I'd tried all the buttons and even had CTH on the phone and they couldn't work it out.

    I ended up watching it on Astro.

    ^ No pic but on the remote, it's the green button (2nd column, 4 rows up from the bottom) with AUDIO written underneath (this is with a satelite system not cable).

    There will be another Stadium Channel (7) by the end of September. This will apparently have all the half time and match build up programs in English.

    Will try to do.......

    There's obviously a difference between the Satellite and Cable remotes. Green button on mine (cable) is for Teletext.

    ^^ I was pressing the button with Audio under it. Can't remember the color but I think it was red. Anyway the only choice it gave me was Speaker left/right/stereo.

    ^cheers. Worth a look just to check.

    Cheers Charley. But again mine is different from that too. Mines an off white colour and looks like a piece of shit.

    Thanks for the reports, guys. Makes my decision to ditch True Visions easier - just got to check the Setanta online to secure the rugby coverage.
