Ubc/true Vision

68 posts in this topic

The UBC/True Vision monopoly are stopping the BBC Entertainment channel as from 1 June. This was my favourite channel and after 10 years of giving my money to them (Platinum package), I have decided to give these people the elbow for their poor service, attitude and being fobbed off on the phone everytime I call about a technical fault.

What are the alternatives to these conmen? I live in an residential apartment block with no 'stolen' satellite tv and I don't want to watch those awful Thai soaps every night!!

What about cable tv? Does anyone out there have it? Is it pricey? What channels can you get?

Any advice is greatly appreciated. I have had enough of the UBC/True Vision mafia. :)

There's no real alternative.

They are a monopoly, just like many large Thai companies, not to mention a rip-off.

The only reason I have it is for the European football and I resent paying them a single Satang.

In Australia for the same price as the TrueVisions Gold Package I could have Fox HD with 30+ channels with some in glorious high definition.

The other day I was in my local mall and the TrueVisions store had one of their channels on a 42" plasma HDTV. The picture was barely legible. Sums them up IMO.

I'll probably give them the elbow anyway and just watch DVDs. I really hate that company.

There is an alternative and that's Philipino 'Dream Key'. I paid a fixed fee for my dish and box. I get English speaking channels etc and it's all free. They change their code a few times a day, but you just go on the internet and get a new code. Simple, I recommend it if you have a computer.

Does anyone know a single satisfied Truevisions customer? Took mine out last December after 7 years of poor service, poor programmes and lies about new dish refund; only received 30% of my deposit and they have just sent another bill after 5 months removal of their system. They are absolute rogues -- total boycot is the only answer for an improved service. I've done my part. Our local cable is OK for 200 baht.

Never had a problem in either Khon Kaen or Pattaya for more than 10 years.

Unfortunately I feel BBC Entertainment is an embarrassment...they have more repeats and broken promises than any other service! I realise that all channels have repeats but 6 hours of Come Dancing in one night is a bit off!

Ok , you now have met a single satisfied customer of UBC/True.

I have had the service in Pattaya and now Banchang for 3 years and I find the service and customer service to be fine. No complaints about customer service at all. Could the programming be more to MY liking? Of course, but I am one farang in a sea of Thais and other Farangs.

True provides me with a good signal and the programs they offer. If I have an issue they resolve it. I get what I pay for and I cannot complain.

The service and signal quality are certainly as good as what I had from DirectTv in the US back 4 years ago.

I have no need or desire to fool around with pirated signals and downloading keycodes. I do not have any cable where I live. Over the air Thai TV is not for me.

unfortunately there are too many repeats but this happens on HBO and all the other channels, 24 hour TV must have repeats but programs like Spooks, Silent Witness, New Tricks etc are not on other channels and there has been lots of complaints about changing a service without even asking the subscribers. Same with sport, i have asked why no Pay4view rugby? i can watch American University basketball, Little league baseball but even when offering to pay i can watch the English Rugby Premiership or The Ashes, so the management do not really care. I have two decoders so my wife can watch the Soap Operas whilst watch other programs; may be time for a change
