I am not sure why no one else besides me has IPPlaybox. 

What you described for 365 Sport and ILike HDTV, I get for 250 BHT  month!  Besides all the soccer channels, I get to watch US sports too, some NBA, some NFL, some MLB and many college sports.  It also has Grand Prix racing, tennis, etc.  There must 40-50 channels of sports.  There are 100's of movies including current ones and  a ton of series, etc.  They usually are in English with Thai subtitles.  There are several places to buy the topup cards.  The one we use is on south Klang Muang Road at the Mang Pong shop.  (It is across the road from the old Samsung Service center.

http://www.ipplaybox.tv/

It is 'use as you wish', you get 30 days on a topup card, no contract, no credit card, no passport copy, no nothing.  Pay 250 baht and try it out for one month.  If you don't like it, you can stop no penalty.

Frank, do you know if you can have more than one device sign on at one time?
i.e. If I was logged in on my laptop, could the kids also sign in on their ipads/tablets?

Also, if you already have a smart tv, is there some thing you need to download to view it, and how much was you box for a non smart tv.
Thanks

Windy, you can sign on anywhere, but only one active signon per user ID.   So to do it on 2 devices at the same time, you need 2 user IDs or 250/month for each.

If you don't have a smart TV, then you need to buy some sort of smart box.  We have a Leotech.  Bought at the same shop where we buy the topup cards.  You can now get one on Lazada for around 2,000 baht or less.  We bought our several years ago for 4-5,000 baht.  We use it for our dumb TV.

With a Smart TV, you go to Google and search for ipplaybox.com.  Click on the website and then signin.  Nothing special.

You need at least a 15 mbps internet service.  The higher the speed the better.

One of the annoying things about IPPlaybox and similar services is that they force you to register before you can see what content is available.  I am fairly particular and there are certain things I want and am willing to pay for.  The other 99% they can keep.  If someone has what I want, I'll sign up and pay in a heartbeat, but I am not going to waste my time in advance.

***

I have had Roku and Netflix for awhile now.  As far as I can tell, the majority of movies on Netflix are a year or two old.   I have seen all the good ones already, and the rest are junk. Better Cal Saul was great, but the season is finished and you can download it elsewhere in any case.  However, they have some really superb, interesting  documentaries, well worth the $10 bucks a month so far. But they had better add some more soon if they want to keep me.

***

Anyway, we quickly learned that both Roku and Netflix SERIOUSLY limit the content you can see if you tune in from outside of the U.S.  For example, you can can't PBS (The American version of BBC) here.  Just being able to get PBS would make a subscription with it.  However are literally thousands more stuffs on Roku and on Netflix if you tune in from the US.

***

So, I have just signed up on promotion for PureVPN for around $50 bucks, but you get a second  year free on the promotion. I can tell it is going to be a learning curve getting VPN going (No more restricted websites!) and will see how well I do establishing US connections for Roku and Netflix.

I'll let you know how it goes.

To someone in your "income category", what is 250 baht?  Big lunch at KFC?  I agree with you about all these sites not providing you an opportunity to view their content.

Tell you what, for 250 baht I'll come to your place and do a demonstration, OR you can come to our home and we'll do it for free!!  555

OR go to the store on Klang Mueng Road.  I know he'll be happy to show you the contents.

I just went on Google and found this link to show you at least the live channels.  http://ipplaybox.lnwshop.com/  Plus, there are probably 10,000 movies/series in either Thai, English with Thai subtitles, English only, etc.

You can order on this website if you prefer.

Personally, I'm just using a VPN (virtual private network) to make it look like I'm in the USA.  It has worked great for me over the past 18 months I've been here.

I went to the registration page filled in the information. Then it sent me to the home page and i typed in the username and password and tried to log in but it said password wrong. Tried with two different names and passwords and always the same.
Any ideas? Am i just doing it wrong?

Hi Mooner.  Welcome!  Guys, say hi to Mooner!

I got further in the registration process than you did.  However, I have not rec'd the activation e-mail to activate the account.  Sometimes they are delayed for awhile, but usually it is instant.  I got a message when I went to the site "This shop owners Do not log in for a period of 52 days ago."  Sounds like some people had a brilliant idea to set up a website business and didn't realize how labor intensive it is keeping it going.  It looks like all they have is sports.  Is that right, Frank?

I have never gone online to register.  I went to the store on Klang Muang Rd and the owner set it up, User ID and PW.  Then I just buy the topup cards from him.

Under "LIVE", there are Sports (many stations of course), Free TV, News, Entertainment (many HBO, Fox Movies, Cinemax, Knowledge, Cartoons, International (not much), and then under "MOVIES" about 10,000 movies/series/new releases/more cartoons/music/Premier League.

In "LIVE" Sports, they have 5 CTH Sports, both regular and HD, for all you soccer bigots, etc., 7 True Sport and 5 True Sport HD, plus Fox Sports, NBA, Golf, etc.

I watched live 'The Open' on Fox Sports from beginning to end all 4 rounds.

Once the NFL starts their season, I am planning on trying at least 1 month of the 350 baht card, which indicated they would carry the NFL.  You have get a new User ID and PW for that card.  If it isn't worth it, don't have to spend any more.
