HKTV's new application to get fresh look
(04-24 19:31)

The Communications Authority says it will take a fresh look at a new application from Hong Kong Television Network for a free-to-air broadcast license, without considering its previous bid that was rejected last year.
The authority's chairman, Ambrose Ho, said officials are processing the new application as quickly as possible in accordance with established procedures.
Meanwhile, the authority says the number of complaints against licensed broadcasters increased ten-fold to nearly 40,000 last year, compared to 2011.
It said the complaints were mainly about partial, misleading and unfair programs, and programs involving product placement. --RTHK
