Hong Kong media tycoon given go-ahead for Taiwan news channel - 20-July-2011, 21:00

Louise Duffy RapidTVNews | 20-07-2011

Hong Kong media tycoon Jimmy Lai has been given the go-ahead to launch a cable TV news channel in Taiwan, after promising that it would not broadcast the graphic content carried by some of his other media outlets.

Lai had told Taiwan's National Communications Commission that news broadcast by his Next Media company would be free from sex and violence.

In 2009, the commission gave the go-ahead for Next Media to broadcast sports and movies in Taiwan, but refused Lai's application for a news channel. At the time, the commission was concerned that the channel might broadcast similar content to the group's Apple Daily website, which shows computer-generated animations of violent crimes and events that feature in the news.

Lai said he would form an ethics committee within six months to supervise the content of the new channel. As yet there is no launch date for the channel.

Hong Kong-based Next Media launched the Apple Daily newspaper and Next Magazine in Taiwan in 2001 and 2003 respectively. The publications attracted criticism for their sensationalist coverage, but have become the best-selling daily and weekly on the island.
