  • More than a tv license? For the past couple of weeks, the issue regarding HK TV licenses has been heatedly debated among HK citizens.  To many people’s surprise, HK government rejected HKTV’s application for free – to – air television license, but instead granted it to the other two applicants – PCCW and i-Cable. The fact that the executive council did not provide any explanations sparked public anger and many citizens went as far as organizing protests and boycotting another TV station’s programmes.   Whilst this may seem to only concern HK’s entertainment business, to many people, this is vital in terms of determining the way in which Hong Kong will be governed in the future. Some suspect that the reason behind for refusing ...

  • Where is justice? Does Hong Kong government still hold the belief of justice, fairness and transparency in their decision-making process and long term plans? I am sure that this question is raised by lots of Hong Kong people after the announcement made by the government about the rejection on the free licence application of Hong Kong Television Network limited (HKTV).

It has recruited lots of talented workers and artists. “Focus on entertainment, which is what Hong Kong lacks”, this is what Ricky Wong Wai-kay aims at in his company. He has done lots of preparation beforehand to raise its competiveness, and to increase the ...

  • Joint-U Discussion Forum x London 4U Presidential Debate   The sound and the fury of an intellectual crowd On 30th October 2013, the London university PASS societies (LSE HKPASS, UCLU PASS, KCL PASS, and IC PASS) held the first discussion forum as part of the new Joint-University Discussion Forum series. Flamboyantly titled the ‘Joint-U Discussion Forum x London 4U Presidential Debate’, the PASS presidents were by no means the focal point or main attraction of the event. Rather, it was the collective voice and attentive ears of an intellectual crowd in the lecture hall, discussing, debating, and articulating, that reigned over the event’s ebb and flow. The event began with each PASS society’s selected sub-committee members introducing the topics at hand: Internet parodies ...

The juxtaposition of color tones accentuated a sense of august somberness. Entering the building, we were confronted with a spacious hall. After some minor hassling over details, a tour guide ...
