More than 1,000 Hollywood blockbusters and over 2,000 TV series episodes are available each year via the online TV-on-demand service provided by Primetime. Primetime is a premium service provider featuring a range of new movies, blockbusters and popular TV series. All items are licensed content from contributors, including Hollywood’s top players Disney, Warner Bros, 20th Century Fox, Paramount, NBC Universal and Sony Pictures.

Kasidit Kolasastraseni, Primetime Studio CEO, said their service offers choices of Thai-dubbed, Thai-subtitled and English-subtitled programming. Pictures are of full high-definition quality, just as audio quality “wows” with DTS Surround 5.1 and HeadphoneX sound. Primetime is the first and only operator in Thailand to have integrated premium quality to online services. The firm has even set its sights on introducing an Ultra HD option in the near future.

The services are compatible with smartphones, tablets, iPads, personal computers and smart TVs. Viewers can go wireless and watch the content anytime, anywhere. The services are available via the Primetime app, which can be downloaded from App Store for iOS and Google Play for Android.
Offering HD quality, Primetime can also play on TV screens with the help of a device like Apple TV, Chromecast and HDMI cables. Viewers can watch the content directly from too.

“Primetime service is outstanding as we can bring new movies to customers faster. As soon as DVDs for movies are made available, Primetime’s customers can watch them online,” said Kasidit, adding that to the latest hits, Primetime’s library also offers a comprehensive range of classic movies and all-time favourites.

For the launch of its services, Primetime has already come up with a special list of movies which includes Big Hero 6, Guardians Of The Galaxy and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Many more movies will be added to Primetime’s library later this year.

Users can subscribe for Primetime’s services via credit cards, PayPal, banks, ATMs, internet banking, counter service and agents such as DNA, iStudio by Comseven, iBeat by Comseven, Banana IT, and Banana Mobile. A range of packages include: “Movie Buffet Package” at B199 a month, offering an unlimited access to hit movies. The “New Movies plus Movie Buffet Package” costs B299 a month.

The “TV Series Buffet Package” costs B299 a month. The “Combo Package” costs B549 a month, offering access to new movies, unlimited access to older hits, and TV series (or get an annual subscription and the fee will come down to just B399 a month).
