Who said it?

This ignores my wish as a private owner to build and live ... on a site with the views and memories that have been so much part of my life

I read the letter from Susanne Ho of KMB (South China Morning Post, November 21) about infotainment on buses.

At the time I was actually on a bus. I looked around at my fellow passengers. Where were the 72 per cent with happy smiles eagerly watching the TV screens? (Ms Ho said that in a most recent survey 72 per cent of respondents said they liked the infotainment).

Missing the point of bus TV debate

Tim Hamlett in his column (South China Morning Post, December 17) and your correspondents Jonathan Man and Ray McGuire (Post, January 7 and 9 respectively) do not seem concerned about infotainment on our buses.

They have missed the point of the bus TV debate.

Mindless segments

I cannot agree with Y. K. Chan, for the Commissioner of Transport (South China Morning Post, December 7), that there are passengers who like 'infotainment TV' on buses.

Monitoring feedback

I refer to the letter from Jill Taylor on bus companies' 'infotainment TV', which appeared in the South China Morning Post, on November 21.

The Transport Department has noted the concern of some passengers, who have found the existing arrangement on board buses with TV broadcasting services, to be unsatisfactory.

Ombudsman should get involved in debate

KMB continues to hope (South China Morning Post, November 21) that because passengers who do not object to the multi-media on-board (MMOB) system on buses are in the majority, this will silence the significant minority who consider the intrusive commercial broadcasts an infringement of personal freedoms.

A campaign by the Society for Truth and Light to snub the popular press and 'infotainment' shows on television after controversial media coverage of Chan Kin-hong, whose wife killed herself and their two sons, has been backed by 700 people.

ROBIN LEACH is best known as the presenter of that ripe slice of television voyeurism Lifestyles Of The Rich And Famous. If you are unaware of this remarkable programme then you are almost certainly British: the UK was one of the few countries in the developed world which declined to air it.

The Fall rise again with new vitriol

The Fall: The Infotainment Scan (Matador).

LOVE 'em or love 'em, they're back. Britain's spikiest, sharpest popsters The Fall return with The Infotainment Scan, perhaps the line-up's best delivery since 1985's indomitable Their Nation's Saving Grace.

No more late nights for John and Leeza

AT last, America's slickly packaged infotainment show Entertainment Tonight has been returned to a viewer-friendly time. Okay, at 6.55pm (Pearl), it's a little early. But it's better than the after midnight on a Sunday slot it's occupied for the past few months.
