    Hello All,
    This may be my first post but I've been lurking around here for years! (I remember when it was Sarnworld!) I just heard that Thaiflix was shutting down and I was wondering how everyone else watches their thai shows? My parents are devastated... we honestly don't know how else to watch shows from the US. Any help would be appreciated!

    Is it really shutting down? Yesterday, I tried to click on the live tv button but the service was unavailable so I wasn't too sure what was the error so I just messaged them instead. They haven't respond back to my message, but how do you know that it's shutting down? Honestly, if thaiflix is shutting down where can I watch their thai shows because my mom is always on thaiflix nonstop...this is so fustrating and not fair...why why?!

    Yes. It's been confirmed by a few people on Facebook. Also I think that there were people trying to renew their subscription and got a refund saying that the service as ending.

    Also there is almost always someone picking up the line or answering support emails in the past. Now.... No answer for days so I'm sure the end is near.

    Wow.. I wonder why it's shutting down. It seemed to have great content.

    I really love Malimar.tv as an alternative. It has Thai, Lao, Hmong, Khmer, etc. My family and I have been with them for over 5 years and never had a problem. They are super responsive and their headquarters are in San Diego.

    You could also try http://www.seesantv.com/seesantv_2014/

    There's a reddit thread too and you might get more insight/replies -- https://www.reddit.com/r/Thailand/comments/94vday/thaiflix_alternatives/

    Thanks! I think I'll try seesan since I've heard of that one before.

    My parents were watching their shows through the roku because it was so convenient. I remember that this happened before with another company when we were hooked up with thai tv satellite.

    Note sure if Seesan has Roku option, but I know Malimar does. What you could do is probably a free trial with both to see which you like better :)

    It's $8 a month if you want to view via web only. But I need the roku as well so it was $90 per year with today's promotion. I think it's $129 per year normally with the roku option?

    I was wondering the same thing. I moved from dootv to thaiflix and now have to move again. Ugh

    Ch3, workpoint, and thairath has YouTube so I'm not too worried but I do enjoy ch7 from time to time. They seriously need to get with it! :rolleyes:

    They have so many good old shows! Is it the lack of subscriptions???

    I was about to create an account too.

    Maybe, especially with most channels going YouTube. They increased their prices like in Jan or something.

    The thing about it was also that it was old people friendly lol. Like, my parents can navigate it and everything with ease. With the others nope.
