AAATom :

Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!
I would like to help you with this.


 


Can you, please, confirm that it is www.blueskychannel.tv you are referring to?


 


Thank you,


Tom

Customer:

yes

AAATom :

OK, thank you!

AAATom :

It seems that the site really is down. I am sorry for this bad news.


 


They are commercial company so this must be a temporary issue.

AAATom :

I am trying to see if I can find anything more about the reasons.

Customer:

Please keep trying - we have a suspicion that the Thai Authorities may be blocking BUT our Thai friends say it is working there.

AAATom :

Oh, I see. It is possible that they are blocking access to the site from outside the country.

Customer:

Do you think you will discover anything else?

AAATom :

Do you mean like finding who is blocking them? I'm afraid no.

Customer:

One other point. Have never used this service before and very happy to pay the £22.00 for your one off assistance but we do not wish to do anything more for now. Are you able to confirm that is all we have committed to?

AAATom :

If you mean are there anything else you have to pay for then, yes, I can confirm that there are no other obligations on your side.


This is per-question pay site.

AAATom :

One more observation on the problem ...

AAATom :

If your friends in Thailand can access the site and the site definitely seems down from everywhere else (I checked several services), then it must be block from inside the country.

AAATom :

*blocked

AAATom :

I can give you few addresses you can use to check the availability of the site if you want.

Customer:

Yes please. will then "finish" unless you warn us to stay connected.

AAATom :

OK, let me prepare the links.

AAATom :

Here are the links:


http://networktools.nl/


http://host-tracker.com/


http://checksite.us/


http://downforeveryoneorjustme.com/


They are simple to use services that check availability of sites (servers).

AAATom :

The first one has set of tools that can check several aspects of availability.

Customer:

Ok. Many thanks for your help. At least knowing it is not us helps. The Thai Authorities are very keen to keep what is happening away from the eyes of the outside world.

AAATom :

You are welcome!
