    ASN is Gone!

    What happened to ASN? It was the only reason I subscribed to TrueVisions.
    Anyone know?

    They are teamed up with the crooks at True internet. They probably did not pay what was due and got cut off. True is notorious for over promising and then not delivering.

    Don't know why they got rid of it but I knew it was going today.

    One of my staff said that it has gone to another provider called Grammy? I didn't know that they provided a television service.

    Anyway, my guy is looking into it tomorrow so I'll report back on what he finds.

    No notice! Just vanished, put some lame crap in place. I was thinking cause I live in a dirty little village that it was only my service cut off.

    WhoTheF is Grammy? They say they might pick up ASN on 8 October? This is a new sat provider in BKK? This is bad... This will affect all the Pubs too. Astronomical porportions this move.

    I went to the ASN web site and read their forum, does not look good for Thailand. chitown mentioned that notsotruevisions plays with providers. It looks bad.

    Well if you read on their forum about Grammy and a Thai guy at my place (who I doubt reads their forum) said the same thing then we might be in luck.

    Yep you've been screwed if you only got ubc for that channel.

    I tried to ring them yesterday about it and the girl asked me for my customer number. I said that I couldn't remember it and she said "No problem, wait one second sir."

    Then the bitch pressed a button and it switched me to a computer that asked me to key my customer number onto the key pad.

    It was a classic fob off.

    ThaiVisa has a thread going with links. It looks like Grammy has the Thai rights to ASN and will be launching a satellite tv provider this month called 1sky tv.

    I don't understand what all the fuss is about, it's not as if you're missing any proper sports, is it?

    Haven't been there in months, and only found it through a Google search. If I did start going there again it would prolly only take a few days to get banned.

    I called True this am and complained like fok! The chick in 'customer service' who speaks English btw, had patience with my ranting but basically told me the NFL and college games for this season are gone...

    WTF is the point of complaining to True? They got out bid, so someone else has the contract. There's fuck all they can do now. If they notice a big dip in revenues, then they'll either have to bid more next time or try and get another channel or two.

    Either way, it's good news, because it should end up with increased choice.

    We had the same in the sandpit with the footy, Abu Dhabi sneaked in a massive bid and grabbed it from Showtime (Dubai).

    It ended up with Showtime going out and getting Championship footy, Rugby, Cricket and lots of other stuff, so now we have a much bigger selection as a result.

    UBC Cancels American Football on ASN

    Woke up Saturday morning feeling really good. Time for some American University football on UBC. Followed by a Sunday feast of American University Football and then the super bowl of all superbowls an all day feast of NFL football on Monday, with Monday Night NFL football on Tuesday morning. A four day "orgie," of football.

    Not to be had! Seems UBC's contract with ASN (All sports Network) came to an end last Friday. Using their noteworthy intelligence they decided not to renew this contract. Reasoning, costs have risen.

    I took it when they cancelled Entourage and Dexter, but to cancel NFL football is downright sacrilegious. How does one do without a weekly injection of good old body slamming American Football? Don't tell me to watch the Rugger's as that's just not enough action or reason to shoot the screen out of your television set. I enjoy rugby and its cauliflower eared warriors, but it just isn't the arena type macho crap of the NFL in all their armor padding and helmeted glory.

    Oh well I have labored long enough about my addiction so in closing I must say this. I have cancelled my subscription to UBC. No American football, no me.

    Now begins the search for a option service that supplies "American Football." Anyone out there using an alternative service for viewing of American football?

    Sorry please don't inundate me with Soccer or that version known as English Premier League football. I tried to watch it, but I just can't take 90 minutes of "keep away."
