Oh they have money.Maybe Ch3 and Ch7 don't have much funding? The only ones really banking as actors are Yaya, Nadech, Mark, Kim, Bella...etc.. these channels are behind because they refuse to change their ways in writing and directing. This way does not appeal to the youngsters.
Ch3 is too inflated. They are "suppose" to be more progressive than ch7....they had all these "youth" generation star campaign
Ch7 markets to country side older people. My mom prefer ch 7 lakorns
The only channel that level up and had growth is ch5....aka OneHD...which is also afflicted with GmmTV and trueTv. The trueTv are on netflix. They also have eng subs on YT.
OneHD is smarter. Their lakorn and series is not too long. They are not inflated with actors.
Ch3 now block/hold out episodes on their YT ch and want ppl to watch on their website.
Ch7 is now posting their lakorn on YT
This year I have only enjoyed 1hd and GMM series/lakorn.
1hd - Love Proposal ....did an "update" on the typical trope. The bond/comradery/relationship between the main lead was heartwarming. You rooted for them.
