Expats working in Saigon get all the perks of modern life. Having TV access and Internet access for your apartment or flat using a service provider is very easy. You just take your passport and go to your preferred provider’s office or call the provider to schedule a technician to come to your home. In case you move to another place, you just come back to their office with your contract or call, inform them about the new location, and they will change the contract accordingly. If you are leaving the country, you will have to come to their office and close your contract.
When renting a new place, make sure to ask the landlord if the cable line has been split. Some households will split their cable lines with neighbours to offset the costs. However, this comes with a big drop in signal quality. Additionally, be sure to ask if cable is included in the rental price.
