TVB's interest in ATV spectrum raises alarm

ebcad9d4f62f64df188d6c88f520a122.jpg?ito

Dominant local terrestrial station TVB said it was interested in seeking the broadcast spectrum soon to be vacated by cash-strapped broadcaster ATV, raising concerns about further concentration of its market power in the city's free TV sector.

TVB Group chief executive officer Mark Lee Po-on said yesterday the station required additional spectrum on top of its existing assigned frequencies to enhance its high-definition digital terrestrial television service.

The television giant has written to the Communications Authority to ask for more spectrum, after separately requesting permission to reallocate its own spectrum to air its flagship Jade channel in higher picture quality.

Asked whether TVB would monopolise broadcast spectrum in the local TV sector if it was given some of ATV's frequencies, Lee said: "TVB only has the 'air' [spectrum], but our competitor has the air as well as 'land' [landline network]."

PCCW's new service, HK Television Entertainment Company (HKTVE), was formally granted a free-to-air TV licence last month and has applied for spectrum to air its free programmes.

An increasing number of aspiring new entrants to the local free TV sector are also eyeing the available spectrum.

This follows the government's decision, advised by the authority, last month to withdraw the two sets of analogue TV channels and 11/2 digital multiplexes assigned to ATV after its free licence expires from April 2 next year.

Leaving aside the analogue spectrum to be taken over by RTHK, the Communications Authority considered the digital multiplexes of spectrum withdrawn from ATV to be more than enough to meet the requirements of HKTVE.

The authority said the surplus of digital multiplex would be available for assignment to other free TV licensees. TVB said it would be interested in applying when the surplus spectrum was available for bidding.

But IT sector lawmaker Charles Mok ..... (article cut to save bandwidth)

The government faces criticism for using the appeal process to try to delay execution of the High Court's order that it reconsider its decision to reject HKTV's free-to-air licence in 2013.

Legislator and barrister Ronny Tong Ka-wah said the government was trying to halt the review of its decision for as long as possible using the appeal, which might take more than a year.

His comments came as Secretary for Commerce and Economic Development Greg So Kam-leung said the government was looking into seeking a stay of that order during the appeal.

The Executive Council on Tuesday announced it would appeal against the court's decision last month that its rejection of HKTV's licence was unlawful.

"I think the government is definitely trying to delay the review [of the free TV licence decision]," Tong said. "If it didn't apply for appeal, the Executive Council would have to start the review immediately."

Tong said there was "zero chance" the court could start processing the government's appeal application this year given its full schedule.

A stay of the court's decision would be bad news for mobile television broadcaster HKTV, whose founder Ricky Wong Wai-kay told shareholders yesterday that the company's online platform had not performed well since it started in February.

In a written reply to a series of questions from lawmaker Frederick Fung Kin-kee about the government's plans and contingencies regarding the court's decision, Secretary for Commerce and Economic Development Greg So Kam-leung defended its actions as "prudent and responsible".

He said the government would "follow up with [HKTV] on the arrangements for processing the application, including whether the order of [the High Court] should stay in respect of this appeal case."

During HKTV's annual general meeting yesterday, Wong told shareholders sales at the company's online shopping business were "not very big" in past three ..... (article cut to save bandwidth)
