Raymond. R. Wong,chairperson of Communications Authority Broadcast Codes of Practice Committee yesterday at Shue Yan University said it is good to open up free-to-air TV market, and he approved of more TV licenses.


Wong pointed out that Hong Kong is a commercial society. Local TV stations aim to make profits and always have to assume sole responsibility for their profits or losses. It made him understand what the two existing terrestrial television stations, Television Broadcasts (TVB) and Asia Television (ATV) did to against banning the issuance of new TV licenses.


“However, it doesn’t mean I agree with their arguments”,he said, “from where customers stand, it is good for them to have more choices to choose from.” It also helps to open up the domestic free-to-air TV market.


CTI, PCCW and I-Cable applied for new licences three years ago, but no one has yet to get its approval. Ricky Wong, chairman of Hong Kong Television (HKTV) earlier slammed the government for the delay in granting free-to-air TV licenses and urged government to issue licenses off hand.


In related issue, some critics thought that the government was under the pressure from the mainland government. Raymond Wong rejected it and said, “Hong Kong is a freedom society. The word “political pressure” is being overused. ”


Communications Authority now has approved new free-to-air TV licenses. “Actually we can only push it forward, but no legal right to issue TV licenses,” said Wong. He stressed the final decision-making has to be made by the Chief Executive, Leung Chun-ying and the LegCo.
