ASIA Television (ATV) was fined twice in 1991-92 for blatant breaches of the broadcasting code of practice, according to the annual report of the Broadcasting Authority. The report, tabled in the Legislative Council yesterday, said the station was fined for showing advertising material within programmes. The fines ranged from $10,000 to $50,000. No station was fined the previous year. ATV also attracted the highest number of warnings, 14, from the authority, which issued six warnings to TVB and one to STAR TV. The report also revealed that, from September 1991 to August 1992, the authority processed 627 complaints about television broadcasting, compared with previous year's 561. A total of 473 complaints were related to programme and advertising material and the rest about unsatisfactory television reception. Of the 473, 53 were classified as trivial; 246 as opinions, which meant no breach of standards; 12 had been dealt with previously; and 85 were referred to the authority's complaints committee. The number of complaints about radio programmes and advertisements more than doubled to 21 from the previous year's nine. Of these, four were referred to the complaints committee for consideration, resulting in one advisory letter to Commercial Radio and two to Metro Radio. The average audience share of ATV for Chinese channel viewers during the year grew to 25 per cent, against the previous year's 21 per cent. The report also disclosed that television viewing remained the most popular leisure activity, with an estimated audience of 5.48 million. There are about 1.55 million television households, with more than 22 per cent owning more than one TV set and more than 68 per cent possessing a video cassette recorder.
