Ricky Wong slams govt for contradicting rules
(03-11 18:10)

HKTV chairman Ricky Wong Wai-kay said the government is suggesting contradicting regulations to the TV operator.
"We are required, by regulation, to make sure at least half of Hong Kong audience able to tune into our channels,'' Wong said. "And now the government says it is against the law to have more than 5,000 households receiving our signals."
HKTV will be able to broadcast via existing receivers.
"These receivers are being illegal used currently. But the government said the very same device will be illegal to broadcast HKTV signals,'' he said, questioning the government for changing policies.
He urged the government to clarify which signals his stations can use to provide mobile TV services.
"The government owes the company and the staff an explanation."
