Mobile TV licenses questions persist
(03-27 12:21)

Lawmakers have again accused the government of double standards over mobile television services.
They questioned why free-to-air broadcaster, TVB, is allowed to offer such a service while Hong Kong Television, which has a mobile TV license, is not.
HKTV postponed the July launch of its mobile TV service after the Communications Authority said it would need a free-to-air or paid-TV licence if it broadcast to more than 5,000 households.
After HKTV was denied a free-to-air TV licence in October, it bought a mobile TV license from China Mobile.
Speaking to the Legislative Council's broadcasting panel meeting, the Secretary for Commerce and Economic Development, Greg So, reiterated that the authorities were just enforcing the law. --RTHK
