Back of the current spate of reforms by Thailand's military junta, the latest move will see free viewing for all of the upcoming World Cup matches on public television.

In a "win their hearts and minds" campaign the initiative comes on the heels of a dispute over broadcast rights by concessionaire RS Plc. who will be showing the World Cup on pay television.

A deal that came after court action has been brokered with the junta paying compensation to RS, so all of the country will now be able to watch the much-anticipated event.

In Thailand, the current mood seems to be all about generating as much happiness as possible and for football fans, this certain is going to fit the bill.
