Will we be able to watch World Cup on holiday in Ko Lanta?

Can anyone advise us whether television and internet are still working as normal in Thailand (Ko Lanta in particular)? Several members of the family would not want to miss the World Cup games!

That is not certain at the moment as originally all the matches were to be screened on free to view local Thai channels which as you are no doubt aware have been subject to military control. Whether that is relaxed for the World Cup matches remains to be seen. I'm not sure if the internet connection on Lanta is strong enough to stream any matches even if they are not blocked.

Don't worry ! Thailand is football crazy and the coups leader will trigger a revolution, if they try to block broadcasting. Also, internet is good enough to receive live games with a delay of 3-5 minutes from actual time. The junta never blocked internet. However, broadcasting time will be between 23:00 h and 07:00 h due to the time difference.
