Junta chief Gen Prayuth Chan-ocha has ordered TV Pool to postpone his weekly TV programme from 5pm to 8:15pm on Friday to allow TV stations to broadcast live a match of the national women's team in the FIVB World Grand Prix 2014.
Prayuth earlier went on TV at about 8pm every Friday night to inform the public of what the National Council for Peace and Order had been doing. His programme is called “Returning Happiness to Thais”.
He moved his programme up to 5pm with effect from last week, saying that 8pm would be too late for provincial people to see his programme.
The Thai team will play against the Dominican Republic at the Hua Mark Indoor Stadium at 4pm.
