Letters | Tokyo 2020 Olympics: Hong Kong pay-TV charges not all fun and games
- The Hong Kong government has purchased broadcast rights, but paid channel operator Now TV is still charging bars an ‘activation fee’
It is therefore with some bemusement that I learned Now TV are charging a HK$3,000 “activation fee” for commercial premises to broadcast the Olympic events. Have they no shame?
Commercial businesses have suffered considerably over the last 18 months and need all the support large organisations can provide in order to attract patrons back to their premises.
If the government have already acquired the broadcast rights, how can Now TV justify charging such an “activation fee”?
It is time for commercial and residential subscribers to stand firm against Now TV and their ridiculous prices, they have been ripping off the people of Hong Kong for too long.
