Thailand has a well-developed press industry, especially for South East Asia. Despite the fact that the Thai press has sometimes been described by commentators as relatively free, the Thai authorities and the army have always exerted significant controls, at least by South East Asiatic criteria, particularly over radios and television transmission. While the Thaksin Shinawatra governments,[quote needed] the ensuing army rule after the 2006 coup d'état and the 2014 putsch, the Thai press - both at home and abroad - have been suffering from growing limitations and censure, sometimes subtly, sometimes openly.

1 ] Thai publications are copyrighted by Thai laws. 5 ] Large TV channels are in the possession and under the control of the Royal Thai Army or the State. Communal radios operating with low-power channels have increased in recent years and offer the listener an option to the state-controlled channels. Recently, however, the goverment closed many communal radios because they ran more powerful channels than allowed and thus interfered with prevailing bandwidth.

At the same time, criticisms of the regime claim that the closed posts were targetted because they had programmes that criticised Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra's policy. In December 2007, the Bundestag adopted a 2008 Broadcasting Act. This came into effect in March 2008.

It repeals the old legislation which reserved monopolistic radio licence for both the state and the state. Under the new Act, all radio and television companies, channels and providers must hold a licence from the Radio Regulatory Authority to be ordered by the State. The Legal Council in July 2008 resolved that with the entry into force of the new 2008 Radio and Television Act, all ordinances, resolutions and management directives adopted under the Abolished Radio and Television Act expired as they were replaced by the new 2008 Radio and Television Act.

In view of the fact that all current broadcasters are members of the Thai goverment, the army or the safety authorities, the question of freedom of opinion or citizens' liberties in these "mainstream" radios has never been questioned or debated. In the case of TV, all TV channels are either in the possession of the state, the armed forces or are covered by licence contracts which de facto confer censorship powers on the state as the proprietor.

Since June 2009, the National Telecommunications Commission has been proposing a provisional CR licence as a provisional regulator/licensor for local authority TV broadcasting and has asked the general public for its comments. Legislative power in Thailand In December 2010, Thailand's legislature adopted a new bill that would forever transform the countryside of Thailand's broadcasting service.

There is a very deep implications of having an impartial regulatory authority for telecoms and the audiovisual industry in a unified group. The NBTC's most demanding mission is to withdraw broadcasting from the NBTC administration and to redistribute and reallocate frequencies for personal, business and social purposes. Broadcasting Act 2008 classifies broadcasting licences into three major categories: a) commercially, b) non-commercially/public and c) communities.

The two name registers were sent to the Berlin State Assembly in August 2011. The largest Thai auctions for the new 24 TWTV started in December 2013. In addition, the ruling party released an application to amend fellowship broadcasting, which gives full control over the licensing (indeed, not licensing) of current fellowship broadcasters to NRC.

Unlike TV, in Thailand the government's oversight of the newspaper is somewhat lower. The reader has the option between a large number of magazines, from sensational bulk publications to those specialising in reporting on the world of economics and policy. Thailand's so-called "business newspapers" also report extensively on policy and the arts. Both of the biggest British magazines are published in broadsheets, with some exemptions.

The other tabloid journals are the Phuket Gazette and Pattaya Mail. Except for one newspaper in Chiang Mai and one in Hua Hin (Hua Hin Today), all dailies are released in Bangkok and circulated to all parts of the state.

Thai newspapers' politics can be categorised according to their relationship to the democratic movements of the seventies. Thai Rath and Daily News are the most important printed press, accounting for half of newspaper revenues in Thailand. Thus, these papers are considered "conservative" within the Thai policy framework.

On the other side, papers that emerged from the 1970' students' movements, such as Matichon, The Nation and Thai Post, have a tendency to take an anti-establishment view. Therefore, they can be called " progressively " within the Thai policy range. "The Public Relations Department of the Thai authorities is publishing a list of all Thai publications with the latest information on registrations, which includes TV, print and on-air.

The print press is in the possession of a small group of families or small groups of shareholders who are connected by a close bond.

Thai-mail (????????) - Approximately 30,000 copies on December 31, 2000. 18 ] His policy position is regarded as the most advanced of all Thai daily newspapers. It is a favorite with Thai intelligentsia.

14 ] This is the heart of the post publishing PCL world. The Hua Hin Today is a month-long newspaper that appears in Hua Hin. This is the only English-language newspaper in the area. Korat Daily - Mr Soontorn Janrungsee's Thai newspaper has the biggest circulation in the area, with around 22 million people.

It was founded in April 1999, was autonomous and even spoke out in editorial terms against the policy of the state. They also provided translation services for British readership from other Thai newspapers. In May 2005, the newspaper stopped publishing a printed issue. MICT ( "Ministry of Information and Communication Technology") is active in blocking Thai Internet Service Providers from access to web pages they consider insulting, mainly pornographic pages, but also policy web pages, especially those related to the uprising in southern Thailand.

In Thailand, one of the biggest web platforms is, which often contains policy debates and criticisms of the Thai authorities, is currently closed because of a lack of information on official MICTs. As a result of the prohibition, more YouTube video has mocked the Thai royal. The adversaries maintain that free expression is not an unconditional right and this act of acts of outrage is an abusive use of free expression, comparable to harassing and hate-speaking (an offence against Thai ideals and sensitivities).
