Big Brother watching bars during Euro 2012

Grammy representatives, police and the Inter Music Copyright Company warn bars, restaurants and nightclubs that they will be prosecuted for showing the Euro 2012 football games on TV. Old-fashioned TV antennae will be able to tune in to the matches live in analogue mode on Channels 3, 5 and 9. However, police will be monitoring businesses to ensure they are not showing the matches to customers openly or even behind closed doors.

Cable and True Visions will not show the games live. Consequently, businesses that want to televise the matches would need to buy a special GMMZ cable box and pay a three-month fee. The total cost would be around 3,500 baht; the equipment is available from Inter Music.
