(Some minor errors in your lead. It should be "owing to the issuance of the new...." and it should be "license" instead of "licence". And it should be "we are not afraid of..." instead of "we do not afraid..". It should be "imposed" instead of "posed restrictions on their....". Enough said about the grammatical issues, you should improve your lead with some keen observation. You said TVB was not afraid of competition in your lead but at least you should hint at why. For instance, TVB fears no competition because Lee forsees a fast demise of one of his competitors.)

TVB: not afraid of new TV stations--105065 2013年1月23日 (三) 09:46 (UTC)

(23 January 2013) Desmond Chan, the General Counsel of Television Broadcasts Limited (TVB), yesterday vowed that their company did not fear any competition owing to the issue of the new free-to-air television licence.

"We do not afraid of competition absolutely," said Chan, adding that the decision of lodging a judicial review was to maintain the stability of the local television industry.

TVB lodged a judicial review application to the High Court on 3 January with regard to the recommendation made by the former Broadcasting Authority (now Communications Authority) to issue three new free television licences in Hong Kong.

Chan continued that although issuing new licences would help liberalize the television market, authorities still posed restrictions on their operation, such as restricting certain types of advertisements like health products to be broadcast.

"If companies are not free to make commercial decisions, the new competitors will probably fight with the existing stations so as to make profit and, finally, the whole television industry will bring to an end after competition," Chan justified on his company applying for a judicial review.

TVB Executive Director Mark Lee also commented that the government had not disclosed enough details of the issue of new licence.

"It is suggested that new licences could be issued to the three applicants," Lee revealed. "Yet, consultants found that there would be only two television stations can keep on operating in the long run."

He claimed that these details were told only after they had made lots of requests.

"The government has done consultancy studies with the issue but it does not publish any content of it," said Lee.

He added that issuing new television licences was not the right solution to the problem. He suggested that the government could stop issuing licences to TVB and aTV, another free television station in Hong Kong, provided that it can prove that the two stations has infringed any law or citizens were discontented and the like and, issue new licences to new stations which it sees fit.

The existing free-to-air television licences of TVB and aTV end in October 2015.
