Digital Broadcasting Corporation Limited (DBC), a licensed digital broadcasting company in Hong Kong, plans to set up a news team in the coming season.

Loh Chan, the C.E.O. of DBC, revealed today at a university talk the future editorial policy of its company and forecasted the trend of local digital media.


Loh stated that DBC plans to set up a news department with approximately 30 people to provide 24-hour news after the share restructure, which the panel bought the news from an local paid television NOW TV in the past.

As DBC programs are also available for audiences from Chinese mainland, some concerned the political preference of program content due to its available area and the political preference of the main group of investors. Loh doubted the possibility of media self-censoring in DBC.

"Good media contents are preferred to be impartial, and Wong are not counted in the director board to avoid breaking the regulation of the broadcast license or other sensitive political concerns.’ He said. ‘In the foreseeable future, DBC will work hard providing unbiased news reports and tackle the critical audiences with experienced and well trained journalists, as well as exploring multimedia platform at the same time.’

Hong Kong has 4 licensed digital broadcasting panels today that includes Commercial Radio Hong Kong, Metro Broadcasting Hong Kong, Phoenix U Radio Limited and DBC. DBC has comparatively more channels among the 4 panels by having 7 out of the total 18. A shareholder dispute of DBC occurred in late 2012 and the restructuring share called stable in early 2013. Wong Cho Bau, one of the present Chinese CPPCC National Committee members in Hong Kong, now hold the substantial share of DBC.

Unlike licensed digital broadcast panels, online broadcasting panels is also another hit format of mass media. Loh commented on the future tendency of the new multimedia, ‘ online media industry needs more analytical talents with the ability of multi-tasking, good observation and logical in the coming future.’ Nevertheless, Loh emphasized that ‘[a digital media or online media] licensed or not is not that important in the later future due to the faster spreading of Internet news reports.’
