Hong Kong’s Communications Authority (CA) will conduct a one-month public consultation exercise for the renewal of the domestic pay-TV service licence of PCCW Media Limited, starting from November 1, 2013. PCCW Media’s licence commenced on September 26, 2003, and will expire after September 25, 2015.
Pursuant to section 11(3) of the Broadcasting Ordinance (Cap. 562), the CA will process PCCW Media’s licence renewal application and submit recommendations to the Chief Executive in Council (CE in C). Members of the public may forward their views in writing to the CA on or before November 30, by mail, fax or email.
As part of the public consultation exercise, the CA will hold two public hearings at community halls, and publish an information booklet containing summaries of the current programming and advertising requirements for pay-TV services, PCCW Media’s service, complaints records and its investment plan.
As an independent statutory body that regulates broadcasting services in Hong Kong, the CA will evaluate PCCW Media’s performance against various statutory requirements as well as requirements under the licence and the codes of practice, and take into account public views before making recommendations to the CE in C on PCCW Media’s licence renewal application.
