Updated June 23, 2018 05:37:55 Thai TV offers $1,000-1,500 free movie tickets if you own a THAILAND VHS tape, according to a Thai media report.
The article, which was shared on the popular social media platform, said that the deal was offered to those who bought a copy of a TH AILAND TV, a popular Thai TV channel that has become popular for its films, television programs and live performances.
The program, which has been offered for free for about two months now, said the offer was meant to encourage Thai viewers to buy a VHS of the popular Thai show, so that they could rent the original in the future.
It added that the offer had not been announced publicly by the channel.
Thailand has been a hotbed of pirated films, music and other content, but the channel has struggled to reach a wide audience despite its high ratings.
Last year, Thailand lost more than 3 million jobs because of piracy.
In an effort to boost the channel’s popularity, Thailand also set up a new online portal, called AThailand TV, in 2015 that has attracted more than 20 million subscribers.
