I'm pretty confident that there will be "alternative" ways to watch it online, and YES, a VPN should work. I use PIA, so luckily I have a HK VPN.

Hong Kong's HKTV adds drama to online shopping, and vice versa

Quote:
Written by: KEN KUWAHARA and YASUO AWAI, Nikkei staff writers



TOKYO/HONG KONG -- HKTV will launch an online shopping business that will let Asian consumers buy items that appear in their favorite dramas and other content.

The video production and distribution company will start the business in Hong Kong this November, with plans to enter mainland China and Southeast Asia, Chairman Ricky Wong Wai-kay told The Nikkei at the company's headquarters. It aims to become the biggest shopping website in Hong Kong, he said.

HKTV has been seeking to enter the broadcasting business, and is already offering an action-packed crime drama on YouTube, generating more than 5.4 million views in a year. And a political drama featuring a Malaysian-born actress has been getting buzz even before distribution.

The company will create dramas featuring food, apparel and other products from tenant companies of its shopping website and distribute them to smartphones and tablets.

While watching the dramas, viewers can purchase the products through a website shown on the screen.

In establishing this business model, HKTV took its cues from the growing Chinese trend of consumers basing shopping and traveling excursions around popular dramas and films. A South Korean drama boom, for example, led to higher imports of food and cosmetics from that country. And when a drama shot in Hokkaido became a hit, fans eagerly visited the northernmost island of Japan.

Product placement is becoming increasingly prevalent in movies, TV shows and other programming. In the latest installment of the Transformer film series from Hollywood, items from Chinese sponsors appeared often.

This marketing technique can be used to great effect when a drama is shown online and goes viral. Restricted online distribution under Japan's strict video copyrights is said to prevent product placement from spreading.

As an international financial center, Hong Kong boasts high income levels and has spawned new trends as a popular tourism destination. But for consumer goods companies, sky-high rents have impeded store openings.

Using HKTV's shopping website can cut sales costs compared with setting up brick-and-mortar shops, Wong said.

Besides mainland China, HKTV is looking to market the new service in Malaysia, Thailand and Singapore -- home to large communities of ethnic Chinese, who are keen on Hong Kong-made videos. When it opens, the shopping site is expected to offer upward of 100,000 items from more than 200 tenants based in Hong Kong, Japan, South Korea and elsewhere.

In fact, more than 10 Japanese companies have already signed up, including Japan Post Trading Service, which offers region-specific food and other goods through the post office network. 47Club, an online partnership of regional newspaper companies offering local specialties, is preparing to set up shop as well.

Women's apparel company Baroque Japan has also thrown its hat in the ring, while leading fashion companies World and Onward Kashiyama, as well as Bigi and other midsize players, have similar plans.

The stronger purchasing power of Asian consumers will lead to greater demand for Japanese food and apparel, said Wong, one of a new generation of business leaders who have been challenging regulations in Hong Kong society. The 52-year-old enjoys overwhelming support among the young.

He founded City Telecom in 1992, which led to sharply lower prices for fixed-line communication and Internet services, which were dominated by big conglomerates back then.

After he sold the communication business in 2012, Wong transformed the company into a production studio and plotted an entry into terrestrial TV broadcasting, which had been controlled by two players. While it had been deemed most likely to obtain licensing approval, the first in about four decades, it was the only one of three applicants to be denied.

HKTV reapplied this April, and plans to invest 3.45 billion Hong Kong dollars ($444 million) over the first six years.

HKTV will start up on the day of TVB Anniversary Gala; Citizens can vote which dramas

HKTV will start up on the day of TVB Anniversary Gala; Citizens can vote which dramas to broadcast first
Saturday October 25, 2014 Hong Kong
Source: Apple Daily, Sina News HK
Translated by: Chloe.C @ AsianEU - The Best Choice - Easy, Convenient and Friendly - Portal




Earlier this month, Ricky Wong announced that HKTV will officially start broadcast next month on the internet, breaking the tradition of watching on television. Citizens can watch through the computer, smartphones, etc. by downloading the HKTV App to watch their shows and the shopping channel. Earlier this week, HKTV announced on Facebook that their new app will be released on the 19th of next month, which is the day of TVB's Anniversary Gala, directly challenging their competitor! HKTV will be letting citizens vote, and choose which drama they want to see as the first to broadcast. Voting will begin on the 27th until November 10th. They simply need to go to the HKTV webpage (hktv.com.hk - Hong Kong Television Network Limited) and choose their favourite from 16 dramas. The dramas that mirror latest society topics, "The Borderline", "Battle of Choice" and "The Menu", are predicted to be the strongest. The daring, yet sensitive plotlines involving black cops, political darkness and freedom of the press are much anticipated by the audience.

List of HKTV Dramas

Spoiler!


MORE INFO AVAILABLE HERE

Download Method:

1. SmartTV
As long as it is a SmartTV manufactured 2012 and later, you may watch after you open the app.

2. Computer
After HKTV starts on Nov 19th, viewers can log in to HKTV's official website, and watch shows online.

3. Android TV Box
If you do not have a SmartTV, but want to watch on television at home, you can watch through a TV Box using the Android system to watch dramas.

4. Smartphones / Tablets
Download the HKTV App on App Store or Google Play, you can watch anywhere on your smartphone or tablet.

By the looks of it, so far Battle of Choice has the most votes, followed by Borderline. Personally, I already put my vote in for Borderline (since I've been waiting to watch the rest of that series since HKTV aired the first episode on Youtube last year).

Voting ends 11/9 and the results will be announced on 11/10.

Beyond the Rainbow looks interesting http://tv.hktvmall.com/beyond-the-rainbow/

kind of odd to see all of the same actors in so many new shows at once though


So is there anyway to get the HKTV App on our smarttv's outside of HK?

i tried to get my sony tv to think i was in asia to get access to some asian apps but the tv only has to the US/Canada ones :/

oh they've got android apps coming cool

Yeah I feel a bit of the same way too. A lot of the same faces in many dramas, BUT they are just starting out, hopefully they will add more casts in the coming months.

As for HKTV SmartTV App and Android HKTV app, you're gonna need to use a HK VPN/DNS to program your settings on the TV and Android hardware to make it work. Hola comes to mind as a free option, but HK VPN is the best method.

Az drama doesn't have HD though. I'll most likely torrent it.

That won't work, HKTV charges the same rate as TVB (500,000+ HKD per ad) to their advertisers to target only HK audiences. Putting it on Youtube will not make sense.

I can foresee that HKTV will eventually sell their rights to other online distributors such as Dramafever, and Viki for an additional revenue stream.
