Since the summer of 2002 a completely new possibility for
wireless radio reception, close to CD quality, is also possible in Thailand.
However, in order to receive the service, special radios with digital reception technology are needed. Although this is a satellite system, no external satellite antennas are necessary. The antenna on the radio is completely sufficient. The range of programs is very extensive and has not only news stations but also
special choice channels (jazz, blues, rock, classical music etc.).
Starting from the middle of July 2004 most of these satellite radio programs are now coded. World Space service only gives access to radio receiver after payment of $ 9,99 per month is paid. If you subscribe 6 and/or. 12 months in advance, the fee is reduced to $ 74,94 for 6 months and $129.88 for 6 months.

My personal experiences with World Space wireless reception in Thailand:
I am the owner of a World Space radio since the middle of September 2002. I ordered a SANYO DSB-WS1000 at THIECOM© import export (in Bremen) www.thiecom.de. The price was 154 Euro plus 25 Euro postage costs. After searching the Internet, this equipment seemed to suit my requirements perfectly. It must be
compatible with my hifi-system and supply a very good tone quality. I am very content with the rendition quality (over the hifi-system). It is almost as good quality as a CD. As a normal consumer, I personally cannot detect any difference between my hifi system and a CD. An array of channels supply their music according to the various sections. This gives us 24 hours of jazz, classical music, country or pop music. All other ends of the music spectrum are also served in the
best way. In addition, special news stations or radio stations with the usual standard program also exist. Very many languages are represented. Voice overs are extremely rare. If they do occur, it refers to the music transmitted. Up until now, the World Space service has escaped the advertising world and does not have many adverts.
