Yes Television is set to re-enter the pay-TV market in 18 months, after seeing an encouraging take-up of its broadband video services. The firm is planning to place its programming on existing infrastructure - such as the platform of either i-Cable Communications or PCCW - and operate like a video portal. 'We are not there to compete with PCCW or Galaxy [Satellite Broadcasting], because we are not that kind of company. [It is] like I am being HBO for you. HBO doesn't pay for the box or network,' chairman and chief executive Thomas Kressner said. The company is bullish towards the market despite rival TV Plus failing to meet its deadline in August to add eight new channels to its 12 stations.
