    Is Google News Being Blocked?

    I tried to log onto Google news as usual this morning, and it re-directed me to the Thai-language Google search page- is anyone else having this problem or am I special?

    I really hope the government isn't blocking the feed... lame.

    No, it is Google trying to be helpful since they are sure your speak Thai since you are in Thailand.

    I asked the same question in the computer forum which is probably where this should be.

    If it's blocked, it's not a computer issue but rather a news issue, I would think.

    OK- are you able to get Google News now? I already went through various Google sites and still can't access it (the search engine is working fine).

    I'm not sure what happened- when I would type google.com into the address bar it would automatically go to google.co.th- I only got it to work by clicking the "go to google.com" tab- I was just flashing back to when YouTube was blocked a couple of years ago...
