The National Broadcasting Services of Thailand or NBT will entirely switch to broadcasting in the Malay dialect on its TV and radio stations in the South on next year.

NBT's deep South stations broadcast in the Malay dialect for only a few hours a day.

The Malay programming on Channel 11 in the South would include documentaries and entertainment from other TV stations, adding that the Malay programmes would help listeners and viewers in the South by providing information from the government as well as work opportunities.
