I am retiring from the US Army in the not to distant future. My wife is from a village about 30 minutes drive from Yasothon. We bought property there (about 4 acres) and intend to build a home there. I was wondering if anyone had any pointers about living in this part of Thailand.

I am particularly interested in making sure I can get Western TV stations since I'm a news junkie and at least some Western food products (the 7-11 in Yasothon is the only place I know where I can get those).

Any commentary would be welcome.
