Today ATV is one of two free-to-air broadcasters in Hong Kong, the other being its arch-rival Television Broadcasts Limited (TVB). It operates two channels: the 24-hour Home channel, which broadcasts in Cantonese, and the 22-hour World channel, which broadcasts primarily in English. The channels are accessible in North America via satellite. In 2002, ATV gained approval from China's State Administration for Radio, Film and Television to beam its two channels to the Guangdong Pearl River Delta region.

ATV has received numerous awards for its programmes. One of its successes is the local version of Who Wants To Be A Millionaire (百萬富翁), a game show originally launched in the United Kingdom in 1998. In 2001, ATV bought the production rights for the Hong Kong market, and subsequently enjoyed an upturn in its viewing figures. TVB responded by producing similar game shows.

In June 2002, Chan, along with Liu Changle (劉長樂), chairman of Phoenix Satellite Television Holdings Limited, established a company that later bought most of ATV's shares. Afterwards, Chan Wing-kei took the post of Administrative Director General.

Given its focus on English-language programming in a predominantly Cantonese-speaking market, ATV World carries relatively little advertising and is subsidised by ATV Home. Both free-to-air television companies in Hong Kong are required by the government to provide an English-language service. In the face of competition from TVB Pearl, ATV World has in recent years switched focus from dramas and movies to documentaries and natural history shows, likely because such programming is less expensive to acquire.

ATV News

Main article: ATV News

ATV News has a wide and close connection with China and overseas media broadcasters. Additional foreign coverage of news is provided by CNN and CBS. ATV receives CNN transmissions 24 hours a day via satellite from CNN's home base in Atlanta, USA. Through than 10 news bureaux overseas, global breaking news can be accessed immediately via satellite and the Internet. ATV News is the newsgathering arm of Asia Television Ltd (ATV) in Hong Kong. ... The Cable News Network, commonly known as CNN, is a major cable television network founded in 1980 by Ted Turner. ... This article is about the broadcast network. ...


To make its news programming more accessible, ATV has established an electronic news site, which provides daily and archived local and international news.


Besides producing daily news reports, ATV offers eight news programmes: six in Cantonese, two in English. Its news programmes broadcast in Cantonese are Monetary Word (金錢世界), Chasing Current Affairs (時事追擊), Decoding Current Affairs (時事解碼), Following Ad Hoc News (時事熱點追蹤), Investment Strategy (窩輪有法) and Mr. Tsang's Show (曾sir28騷). Its two English-language news programmes are Newsline, a discussion show, and Inside Story, a topical magazine show.


ATV's News Magazine, a recent current affairs production, has won awards at the New York Festival[specify], the Chicago International Television Competition and the Asian Television Awards.[citation needed] Asian Television Awards, an appreciation to recognize and reward programming and production excellence in Asias television industry. ...


ATV Training Institute

Asia Television Training Institute was founded to train people who are interested in joining the television industry. There are four faculties including television production, television artwork, television talent and technical production. Some of the graduates are offered work at ATV.


License

ATV recently had its license renewed for another 12 years. Under the terms of the licence renewal, the Broadcasting Authority required that ATV World provide bilingual subtitles on news, weather and current affairs shows, educational shows and emergency announcements, beginning in December 2004. The company was also required to provide more cultural and arts shows.


Major competitor

TVB was the first wireless commercial television station in Hong Kong, and was the initial driving force for the then RTV to switch to free wireless broadcasting from paid cable. It was established in 1967. The Group has now grown to a size of about 5,000, including contract artists and staff in overseas subsidiary companies. The viewership of TVB is usually much higher than that of ATV. TVB has an overwhelming advantage over ATV, mostly due to the entrenched viewing habits of the population -- the company has most local music stars under contract and its Cantonese-language service provides a steady stream of soap operas and undemanding entertainment programming.


Actor Crossovers

TVB is known to typecast their performers, some will always lead and some will always play in second or third place positions. It's because of this that certain actors left TVB to ATV to have better opportunities and vice versa. The majority of the leading roles are actually given to veteran TVB actors. While some veteran TVB actors merely switch sides because their contract ended, some joined because they're offered better compensation and positions to veteran TVB actors. There were several known incidents where TVB had certain dramas planned and were forced to cancel or rewrite scripts because the star(s) of the role left for other opportunities and vice versa. While TVB also acquired ATV actors, the cross over is higher in frequency with TVB actors to ATV.


Criticism

In recent years, viewing figures for ATV Home have fallen sharply, as the TV station has begun to cater more to the interests of the mainland Chinese audience, who can now legally receive the channel. Some Hong Kong viewers have complained that programmes aired on ATV Home are "old-fashioned" and not in tune with the preferences of the Hong Kong TV audience.


Moreover, news programmes broadcast by ATV are deemed by some observers to have taken on a pro-Beijing bias, reporting news involving pro-democracy political forces in Hong Kong in a negative light. (A short talk show on current affairs that airs after the six o'clock news frequently invites pro-Beijing advocates to air their views, often praising the PRC's policies and criticising pro-democratic parties, especially when these parties invoke a demonstration). TVB's news programming has been similarly criticised for its "pro-establishment" stance. Although the Hong Kong media has freedom of speech, self-censorship is commonly practised at media organisations whose owners have business interests in mainland China. A shift in ownership of ATV in mid-2006 sparked concern that ATV would become even more pro-Beijing. This article is about the general concept. ... Year 2006 (MMVI) was a common year starting on Sunday of the Gregorian calendar. ...


For example, the pro-democracy July 1 marches usually makes the headline news on TVB, but ATV usually makes the pro-Beijing counter protests the headline news. ATV also attempts to dilute the pro-democracy message of the marches by saying the participants have different messages. July 1 marches is a series of marches on July 1 held annually in Hong Kong since 2003. ...


ATV Drama

ATV is notorious for poor quality production of their drama works. Among them are poor lighting, sound/audio, and imagery. Several projects required fantastic scenes that were deemed too expensive to create and so CGI were used to replace physical props, but the CGI tends to be sub-par and unrealistic. Many scenes had poor use of lighting where the actors stood in night, but the lighting was intense to give the false illusion of day while the background was clearly night. When shot during the day lighting was saved for costs, creating dimmed cinematography as the filming required brighter lighting. The actors tend to speak louder or echo frequently as their recording is poorly done. Many people believe all of these problems are contributed to cost problems within ATV and try to cut costs within their production, but only attributed to lower ratings.


Also, the translation controversy over ATV's telecast of Korean drama Jumong has further raised questions over the station's production quality, and also its editorial independence. Jumong (Korean: 주몽, Hanja: 朱蒙) is a historical drama which aired on South Koreas MBC television network as a 45th Anniversary Special Drama. ...
