Hong Kong’s Office of the Communications Authority (OFCA) has reminded members of the public about the arrangement for receiving a new television programme channel of Fantastic Television Limited (Fantastic TV).
Following the approval granted by the Communications Authority on 24 February 2022 for Fantastic TV to use radio spectrum as an additional means of transmission to deliver its free TV service, Fantastic TV has been broadcasting its TV programme channels via both fixed network and radio spectrum (i.e. digital terrestrial TV (DTT) frequency channel 22) since the 1st of April 2022.
“At 6am on the 21st of November 2022, a new TV programme channel (“HOY Infotainment”) will be launched by Fantastic TV that will bring the number of DTT programme channels provided by domestic free TV licensees and a public service broadcaster to a total of 14. The channel number of the additional programme channel is 78. Viewers who are currently receiving Fantastic TV’s programme channels but have not yet been able to watch programme channel 78 will only need to perform channel rescanning on their digital TV receivers in order to receive the new programme channel,” a spokesperson for OFCA said.
Members of the public may refer to the consumer alert issued by OFCA today for details on how to receive the new DTT programme channel. Relevant enquiries can be made to Fantastic TV’s hotline at 2112 0678 or its email address at email@example.com. For other enquiries on TV reception, members of the public may also contact OFCA at 2961 6333.
