Digital audio broadcasting (DAB) in Hong Kong will be successful in future, since there are too few choices for Hong Kong residents, said Albert Cheng, founder of DBC.


Cheng noted that although he was asked to leave after the shareholder dispute in DBC, he believed dab will be successful in future, since dab provides more choices for Hong Kong residents.


"There are only 7 FM channels provided in a city with more than 7million residents, which is totally not enough. It is ashamed, just having a similar situation as North Korea, having only 1 FM channel with a country of 1million residents," said Cheng.


When asked that most of the digital radio fail to implement in many foreign countries, Cheng said that the situation in Hong Kong is different.


“There are only 50 thousand residents in Vancouver, but there are more than 100 FM channels in the town, so why there is no room for digital radio to be successful, but we have only 7 channels in Hong Kong, so it is totally different. It’s just that no company will gain profit by the day of its opening, DBC needs time,” said Cheng.


Cheng pointed out that they have sold more than 100thousand digital radios throughout these years, which he thought this is a mark of success.


Cheng revealed that he is establishing a new radio station - online radio D100, feeling that he can broadcast with fewer restrictions.


“At least I can save lots of money, without paying the license fee, rent, and copyright fee for IFPI, and these cost more than 10million dollars" said Cheng.


Cheng added that he will look forward and keep going, also believe that online radio will lead the trend.


“Probably god thinks that I have already handled digital audio broadcast very well, so ask me to implement radio in internet, ha ha,” said Cheng.


Cheng disagreed with the prediction that radio will disappear in the world someday.


“Radio will never die, just change the broadcasting method,” said Cheng.
