Synopsis

The market for triple play and convergence in Hong Kong is supported by a sophisticated telecommunications infrastructure. The country has extensive DSL and cable coverage coupled with a large fibre optic footprint, a valuable precursor to consumer uptake of triple play and IPTV. Television is a substantial market in Hong Kong, with an estimated customer base of almost 2.2 million households (99%). There are over 200 domestic, regional and international TV channels broadcasting in a range of languages, including free-to-air commercial channels, pay TV channels and a variety of FTA satellite channels. Hong Kong was initially unsuccessful in its efforts to bring competition to its pay TV market, which had been dominated by i-Cable Communications. The advent of ADSL-based TV services started to change all this, however. This report provides an overview of the Hong Kong TV market, developments in digital cable and satellite TV, and an overview of the major players.
