HKTV 'warned' over digital TV plan
(03-12 18:06)

The Communications Authority says it warned Hong Kong Television Network two months ago that the firm's planned digital-TV service might breach the law.
The regulator informed the company on Tuesday that it could not launch the service unless it obtained a free-to-air or pay-TV licence, or guaranteed that its signal would reach less than 5,000 homes.
This prompted HKTV's owner, Ricky Wong Wai-kay, to accuse the Authority of deliberately driving his company into a corner -- a charge that it's now dismissed.
Wong admitted that the regulator, had raised the possibility of legal problems during a meeting in January. But he accused it of ignoring subsequent requests for clarification. --RTHK
