Rural Asia misses out on BBC & CNN

There are very few isolated places left in the world, with Satellite TV, mobile phones and the internet bringing to world to you.

Where I am staying at the moment in Chai Nat, central Thailand I have access to Sat TV, over 10 satellite feeds to choose from (the dish has a motor attached to the Sat box to automatically move the dish to the chosen satellite) and I have the following English language news channels to choose from:
  • Aljazeera
  • France 24
  • Press TV
  • Russia Today
Notice the lack of US & UK main stream media sources, sometimes isolation is a very good thing indeed.
