The new free TV broadcasting license has been a hot topic in Hong Kong this 2 weeks. A handful of companies try to apply for the new TV license (including CTI, Now etc), but the government seem to be quite reluctant in approving their licenses. Some speculated that the hong kong government was under certain political pressure resulting this long delay of license approval.
Most of the free TV programmes are currently provided by TVB and ATV. Allowing more TV channels to compete can certainly boost up the quality of TV programmes. Script writers, producers and actors would give their very best to increase the programme’s air rating. The general public would definitely enjoy better TV shows and high quality productions if the government allow other players to chip in.
