Despite some problems (and Thai TV declining to take up its digital licences) Thailand’s National Broadcasting Telecoms Commission (NBTC) says it is confident that it will have some 39 new digital stations up and running,
NBTC committee member Supinya Klangnarong chaired a meeting in Bangkok with all service providers, which include Mass Communication Organization of Thailand, Thai PBS, the Royal Thai Army (which runs a TV station) and others. The meeting briefed all parties on the progress of the nation’s digital broadcasting systems.
More digital TV stations are expected to be established this month. There will be a total of 39 stations by the end of next year, according to local reports.
