Raymond. R. Wong, Chairperson of Communications Authority Broadcast Codes of Practice Committee, said he has endorsed new free-to-air television licenses twice and could not understand the procrastination of government.

Raymond. R. Wong, who is a member of the Broadcast Authority and the new Communications Authority, said more TV license holders, means more choices for audiences. He said, “The Broadcast Authority had already endorsed an issuance of three new free-to-air television licenses to the former Chief Executive Donald Tsang Yam-kuen in one and a half year ago. The Communications Authority also requested the current Chief Executive Leung Chun-ying to approve the licenses last month.

“However, the authority is not the one who gives out licenses. The chief executive and the Legislative Council make the final decision,” said Wong. He said he could not understand why Gregory SO Kam-leung, the Secretary for Commerce and Economic Development, said the approval still had “problems in procedures”.

Nonetheless, being asked if the Hong Kong government received “political pressure” from the central government on the issuance of TV licenses, Wong said the word “political pressure” has been overused. “Whenever the current local government has administration problems, some people will say it is because the central government doesn’t approve the issue. Who knows what the central government thinks?” He asked, “Does the central government have so much time to take notice of everything?”

Wong said he understood the two existing free-to-air TV stations worried about a more intense competition would lower their profit; however, he did not agree with them to use it as an argument towards banning the issuance of new TV licenses since the government had never promised to guarantee the TV stations could make a certain percentage of profit.
