(12-20 17:37)

Hong Kong Television Network (1137), which failed to win a free-to-air TV license, announced today it will launch mobile television and innovative over-the-top services, from July 1 next year.
Broadcasts could be viewed on smartphones or tablet devices.
Chairman Ricky Wong Wai-kay said the aim is to operate through three to five channels, including an integrated Cantonese channel, and "round-the-clock" news channel.
HKTV will resume content production and proceed with the next phase of the construction of the new multimedia production and distribution center in Tseung Kwan O Industrial Estate.
The broadcaster also plans to rehire the 320 employees laid off earlier in October.
