All TV channels will broadcast live the royal cremation ceremonies of the late King Bhumibol Adulyadej in October. 



Deputy Prime Minister Wissanu Krea-ngam said on Friday that the royal cremation ceremonies on all five days, from October 25-29, will be broadcast live by all channels.

The Cabinet had earlier announced a national holiday on October 26, the cremation day.

Wissanu said the government had no intention to announce more holidays. 

He said it was too early to decide if the government would also declare holidays on October 25 and 27 to enable Thais from other provinces to travel to Bangkok to participate in the ceremonies.
