Thai military declares coup
Thai Television Channels To Operate "Normally"
After the coup (a.k.a. National Peace and Order Maintaining Council) declared that all television channels were run only military broadcasting with patriotic musics (http://ireport.cnn.com/docs/DOC-1136025), the coup later announced that some television channels (e.g. Channel 3, Channel 5, Channel 7, MCOT, NBT, Thai PBS and some of digital-tv channels which are not stopped broadcasting by the Council) can do broadcasting "normally" but the Council commanded that all listed channels must not give the news which affects the stabilities of Thai politic and also the Council itself. Moreover, the logo of the Council is put in every listed channel on the top right of the television screen. Some of the foreign news Channels such as CNN and BBC still can't be operated.
