It probably all comes down to whether Ricky Wong is communist-friendly or not. I don't know enough about him, but I would guess not, based on this decision.

^ He's not, that's why he left ATV as CEO, only after 12 days in that position, a few years ago.

Well there you go. He probably wanted to create a pure HK channel, with no ties to the communist government. Both TVB and ATV are sold out, so there really is a need for a station like this.

nope thats not the reason for sure

my dad speculate that its his personality problem & he the fact that he doesnt have a big enough support

dudes a little over confidence, which did piss off the government (my dad & i spectacular the government didnt like him before)

--------------------------

also in other news, hktv stock rise to 3.20

mean while hktv has laid off already bunch of there staffs already & some of the those actors are planing to go back to mainland work

Apple Daily claims this is a two pronged scheme

1) They'll lose control over TVC (the Chinese gov that is)
2) The China owners want to unload the dud that is ATV so by not giving HKTV the licence it would force them to buy ATV.

But then this is Apple Daily so don't believe a word of this.

What is surprising is that there's no mention of alternative methods of broadcasting, there's no mention of Netflix like system, paid youtube channel, anything. I guess Chinese people just want free shit LOL

well this morning (hk time) at CY Leung legislative Q&A at the legislative office, hktv not getting a license was a big topic & asked CY the REAL reason behind it

he keeps dodging the question why saying it was a private disclosed meeting

Living in HK for a while now so I'm sure Richmond is nowhere near as cray. We got beef with mainlanders and now stepped it up with beef for Philippines LOL

to be honest, i don't know what the big deal yes. Yes, it suck balls. the government totally did somethign really retarded, but it's CHINA that laid it down and said, you figure out a way, but i ain't giving a license to Ricky Wong.

CY is just a nobody but has to obey the rules from top down. I'm sure CY would have wanted to give the permit, but when China says no, it's no and it was up to CY to deal with it.

To all the hongers that left Vancouver for HK post-1997. The pasture is not always greener on the other side. With many new regulations and laws being manipulated by the Central government in China these days, are you guys really better off over there than here?

The problem with this is that China is not supposed to touch anything here until STARTING in 2047. It's right there in the law.

But who are we kidding here by saying China will not exert influence on HK as soon as they took over the sovereignty of HK. And besides, even if they don't do anything until 2046, I would imagine the outcries and protests would still be the same, except China would probably squash it forcibly by then.
All I see is a slow assimilation of HK into China slowly

Yes, a lot of us hongers did go back, but in a lot of my friends' cases they have families and businesses back in HK/China so already they have a head start. For me it was because I found a good job in HK that didn't come with the normal trappings of a typical HK job (i.e. insane hours, little benefits, etc). But the people that went to Van for the most part are not representative of the people protesting on the streets; generally speaking the people that were able to move are at the very least the middle class of HK, and subsequently with a Western upbringing (if you're not from Richmond), bluntly speaking you're ahead of the curve should you go back to HK meaning we get the better jobs with better pay.

I'll go even farther to say that this group of ours is at times elitist, out of touch, nor indifferent about the goings on in HK. My group of friends her really never discuss the current social issues of HK, many of them simply plan their next vacation back to Van and then instagram pics from Guu. For someone like me for example I am perhaps jaded enough to see that regular protests don't work, and that more "high level" political tactics need to be employed by the people.

The thing is with HKers they've never really had a say in politics up until '97, and you see in the news how immature and ineffective some party's antics are. And they're competing with the Chinese government, a gov who's had more than 50 years of running shit. How the hell are HKers supposed to win.

Long story short, I think a lot of us come back for a job or the Asia experience for a bit, but when push comes to shove or when people start having kids, we'll run back to Van. Maybe people from Toronto would have a different story

TL;DR - Asia is better only short term, and Hongers from Van are above most of HK's "problems"

Protests in the past were somewhat effective, because they had a chief executive that cared solely for HK. Now they have CY, whom we obviously see is controlled by the China gov't.

It truly is a shame that they were denied.

People on am1470 frequently talk about this, and are usually quite furious. Especially certain DJ's that used to be in the HK television industry.

A slow process of replacing the govt is fine, with the exception of attempted cultural assimilation. And even then, nothing should even start taking place until starting in 2047 at the earliest. Even if they do the exact same thing they are doing now, it is way too early.

Now you have generations being born into this atmosphere, and tensions are rising. If they continue this path it's only going to get worse.

The fucked up thing is that CY is supposed to be the man for the people, having not grown up rich he used that to run against Henry Tang. Granted Henry fucked up with his mansion scandal, but either way CY was supposed to be different.

The truth is people do pile on him for everything, and whether he's even involved in half the stuff people complain about remains a question.

CY didn't have to campaign about anything. Any campaigning would have been for nothing other than to try to appease the people, who don't have a say in the election.

He was Beijing's second choice, as their first choice had way too many controversies.. CY isn't without his own of course, but either way it wouldn't have made a difference. Neither man represents Hong Kong's interests in the least.
