Entertainment TV programming to resume in Thailand on Nov. 14

Normal TV programs will be returning to your screen on Nov. 14 as the 30-day mourning period is coming to an end, the National Broadcasting and Telecommunication Commission announced.

After the passing of late King Bhumibol Adulyadej on Oct. 13, television channels were requested by the government to replace their regular programs with a monochrome palace broadcast.

Thai PBS reported that whether or not drama series will continue airing will be up to the shows producers. They will deem whether or not the content of the shows is appropriate to be shown during this time while Thailand is deeply in mourning.

Musical concert organizers have been advised to consult the local government authorities, or the Situation Monitoring Center, about broadcasting the shows.
