SPARX Thanks for that.
Okay so I have done a bit of research and found out more info.
These are links to business/investment websites.
Some quotes of interest from the articles:
Triple V Broadcast is
the operator of Thairath TV which broadcasts variety programmes in
One of the TV shows it produces and broadcasts is Game Show Social.
five key founding sponsors - Bangkok Bank, Advance Info Service, Isuzu,
Unilever and Tesco Lotus - and other main sponsors, the company
expects that it will hit its revenue target of Bt500 million for this year.
in the year 2015, Thairath TV also plan to launch the project Connected
TV in the first quarter to follow the first year that we make Game
Show Social, the tv program which allows viewers to join the game through
the 2ndScreen including mobile phones, tablets, or computer
screens with the total of 60,000 downloads with the number of participants
growing at 60% per day comparing to the first day. There will also be the
launch of the channel’s Application to serve viewers’ second screen behavior in
the first quarter of next year.
TV is planning to invest Bt1.6 billion mainly on contents next year in a
bid to achieve its revenue target of Bt1.5 billion, which was recently
revised from the original goal of Bt1.2 billion. About Bt1.2 billion will go
for contents and related production costs including broadcasting rights for
foreign TV shows.
I checked the currency exchange rate and it is roughly 3.5 Thai Bt to 1 U.S
Dollar so if you divide 1.2 Billion Thai Bt - by 3.5 you can do the math and
work out the dollar value of their next year investment is massive (my math is
crap) but its roughly over $400,000,000 so they are not a small company and I believe that JW.org are
investing in this - the company is so big that they would not allow some stupid
idiot to just put JW.ORG on their tv show.
Somethings smells here and its not me,lol.
going to continue to research this.
