PCCW's free TV channel ViuTV is to launch a English channel ViuTVsix on March 31, with the channel number 96.
Lofai Lo Ting-fai, the general manager of HK Television Entertainment, said the channel will provide rich news content with Reuters every day from five to six news sources, including CNN, Deutsch Welle, NHK World and AI Jazeera.
Local and international news will be featured equally.
ViuTVsix will introduce the first TV channel for dog lovers and their pets. Owners can watch programs with pets for entertainment as well as understand how dogs see the world.
At the same time, the channel will bring dramas from HBO Original to Hong Kong viewers, including Emmy and Golden Globe-winning series Entourage, True Blood and Boardwalk Empire, which have not been shown on local free-to-air TV channels before.
