If like me, you want to be able to stream Thai TV when you are back home and not sit in front of your PC, you’re in luck! This will work for everyone, not just people in the UK 😉
While you can stream some Thai TV channels via the channels web page or from YouTube, I wanted something I could watch on TV so that everyone could enjoy and not sit around a PC.
If you have a Raspberry Pi laying around and want to put it to use, the below is how you can get Thai TV in the UK!
A workaround to the Thai TV Add-On is the PVR IPTV Simple Client! This is currently working and I’ve listed the steps below on how to get this setup.Workaround: PVR IPTV Simple Client
What’s You Need
All you need is a Raspberry Pi, OSMC or Kodi and to enable PVR IPTV Simple Client. You can also use the Thai TV add-on, while this can still be downloaded and installed, it currently doesn’t find any Thai TV channels.
I’m still running OSMC on a Pi 2 with no issues at all. I still have the original Pi and the below setup works just fine, although a little slower.
Whatever Raspberry Pi you have, the below guide will be the same 🙂
Below you will find the guide to install the Thai TV add-on, while this still isn’t working I have found that using the PVR IPTV Simple Client works. So some good news at last!
PVR IPTV Simple Client For Thai TV
- From the home screen, select Settings
- Select Add-on browser
- Select My add-ons
- Select PVR clients
- Scroll down and select PVR IPTV Simple Client
- From here select Configure
- In the M3U Play List URL, type: https://iptvm3ulist.com/m3u/th01_iptvm3ulist_com_220320.m3u
Then click OK
There are currently 4 m3u links that you can choose from, these are linked at the end of this guide.
- Select Enable
- Now head back to the home screen and you will find a new option for PVR & Live TV. Select PVR & Live TV to view Thai TV channels.
That’s it! Nice and simple, and as you can see from the time stamp on the screenshots, it only takes a few minutes to set up.
The m3u list can be found over at IPTVm3ulist and it’s worth checking here for updated lists every so often. You update the list at step 7 as and when a new m3u list is added.
Installing The Thai TV Add-On
While OSMC and Kodi are a little different, the install process is basically the same. So it doesn’t matter if you run OSMC or Kodi as your Raspberry Pi’s O/S.
This method currently isn’t working, but you are more than welcome to give it a go. I will update the below steps once/if there becomes a working version.
Installing and setting up the Thai TV add-on
- From the home screen, select settings
- Select File Manager
- Select Add Source
- Enter https://dodge.000webhostapp.com/zips/
- Enter a name for the media source. This can be anything you like.
- Back at the Settings screen, select Add-On Browser
- Select Install From ZIP File
- Select the media source you just added
- Select repository.khmerdubbed-2.02.zip
- Select Install From Repository
- Select Khmer Dubbed Repo
- Select Video Add-On
- Select ThaiTV
- Select Install
- From the Home screen select Videos
That’s it! All done and installed 🙂
You can now access the Add-On from the Video Add-Ons screen:
- Select Video Add-Ons
- Select ThaiTV
- You now have a selection of Thai TV channels to watch!
Well, I hope that helps you get set up and watching Thai TV in the UK! While a bulk of the channels work all the time, I have found that a few drop out every now and again. So far though we’ve been enjoying the ability to watch Thai TV on the big screen!
