All five requested and received bail pending appeal, which is due to be heard on March 12.
The Criminal Court ordered Somkiat Pongpaiboon jailed for two years and granted him release on Bt300,000 bail, which he financed using a land deed.
Anchalee Paireerak, Phuwadol Songprasert, Yuttiyong Limlertvatee and Chitiphat Limthongkul were jailed for one year each and released on Bt200,000 bail, the money drawn from a PAD defence fund according to Anchalee.
At the time of the assault on the TV station, the PAD was attempting to oust the Thaksin Shinawatra-backed government of Samak Sundaravej.
