(It would be more appropriate to call Wong a veteran journalist than an experienced pressman. It should be "license applicants" instead of "applied" organizations. It would be better to use "so far" instead of "till now" for the latter expression could be interpreted as the license was recently issued. Wong did not see Beijing as the reason for the delay was a rather interesting observation and you should put it in a more prominent position in your story.)



By SIU, Hnag Nam, 2012-12-12-Raymond. R. Wong, an experienced pressman, said in a university seminar, the government should issue the Domestic Free Television Service Licence to the applied organisations.


The Hong Kong government planned to increase domestic free television service provider and received 3 applications in 2010. The licences have not been issued till now, and became a controversial issue in the media industry. The Television Broadcasting Company Limited (TVB) and the Asia Television Limited (ATV) are especially opposed to the idea of issuing new Domestic Free Television Service Licences.


The Communications Authority Broadcast Codes of Practice Committee, which Wong is the chairperson, had recommended CY Leung, the chief executive of Hong Kong, and the Executive Council few months ago that the licences should be issued to the three applicants. He said the government should issue more licences if she want to provide more choice for citizens, as not everyone is affordable for paid television services.


“There is no guarantee the business would be profitable with the issuance of the licence.” Said Wong. He said that the capacity of the Hong Kong market to support the operation of new free television programme service providers should not be a concern of the government. He added, Hong Kong, as a free market, would have its own adjustment.


Wong do not think that the government has delayed the issuance of licences due to political pressure from the Chinese government. Television station establishment is a huge investment, the three applicants, as businessmen, would smart enough not to work against the government, because they are not going to waste their investment of billions of dollars, Wong said.
