Television Broadcasts Limited is a television broadcasting company based in Hong Kong. The company operates five free-to-air terrestrial television channels in Hong Kong, with TVB Jade as its main Cantonese language service, TVB Pearl as its main English service. TVB is headquartered at TVB City at the Tseung Kwan O Industrial Estate, it began operations on 19 November 1967. The company was registered on 26 July 1965 and was co-founded by Sir Run Run Shaw, chairman from 1980 to 2011, together with Sir Douglas Clague and Harold Lee Hsiao-wo of the Lee Hysan family; when TVB first began broadcasting it was known and promoted as "Wireless Television" in Chinese to distinguish it from the cable television broadcaster, Rediffusion Television, which became ATV. It is still referred to with that name, although ATV switched to "wireless" broadcasting as well. TVB is known for its dramas, produces the Miss Hong Kong and Miss Chinese International pageants, it has been the most dominant broadcaster in Hong Kong.
The government set up a working party in the early 1960s to study the idea of setting up a second television station in Hong Kong, where the only television at that time was the wired, subscription-supported Rediffusion Television. There was debate as to whether the second station should be set up as a Crown corporation, as with the BBC. Another challenge lay in procuring enough content for the new station. In 1962, Director of Information Services J. L. Murray stated that while English programming could be purchased from other countries, "no country is producing a mass of suitable pre-recorded material in Chinese". Though Hong Kong was regarded as a centre for film production, it was considered a challenge to source enough Chinese language content for another television station, as most of it would need to be produced in Hong Kong. Regardless, there was commercial interest in the concept. A government franchise for a new wireless television station was opened for tenders on 6 February 1965 and closed on 6 August 1965.
On 25 January 1966 it was announced. The new Television Broadcasts Limited station on Broadcast Drive in Kowloon Tong, Kowloon was opened by Governor David Trench on 19 November 1967; the governor spoke of the potential for television to better society, stating that the new station would play a significant role in "helping and enlighting our people", calling television "one of the most potent means of disseminating information there is". The first images shown on the station were a live transmission of the Macao Grand Prix, which began broadcasting at 9:00 am that day and was interrupted by footage of the opening of the new station; the first colour broadcast was made, a feature called "London Calling Hongkong" which constituted greetings from former governors Alexander Grantham and Robert Black. Following this was a piano recital by Chiu Yee-ha, who had performed at the opening of the Hong Kong City Hall; the new station broadcast English-language channels. The Chinese channel, called TVB Jade, began regular service on 4:30 pm that day on Channel 21, while the English service began at 6:00 pm on Channel 25.
The inaugural programming lineup included Enjoy Yourself Tonight, a Chinese language variety show, Meet The Press, an English current affairs programme. Hong Kong's mountainous topography posed a challenge to TVB, Hong Kong's first television station broadcast wirelessly. A network of transmitters, built atop various mountains, helped provide coverage to the territory; the main transmitter was built at Temple Hill, above Kowloon, to reach most of the main populated centre of Hong Kong as well as parts of the New Territories. Two broadcast relay stations were came into operation on 15 May 1968: one at Lamma Island expanded coverage to Pok Fu Lam, Repulse Bay, parts of Stanley, while another at Castle Peak covered Tuen Mun, Yuen Long, Ping Shan. A third booster station, located on Cloudy Hill, was activated in June 1968 and brought TVB reception to Fanling and Sheung Shui. TVB receives praise for its programming from a wide range of demographics, including the middle class, as was the case with its 2004 historical drama series War and Beauty.
Its programme line-up features a steady stream of soap operas, variety shows and other populist fare. TVB has been criticised for signing exclusive contracts with many local celebrities which restrict them from appearing on other local television stations. Hong Kong's Cable T. V. claims. In fact, many artists do not have exclusive contracts with TVB and are free to show up in programmes produced by other local television stations or out-sourcing production houses; the annual TVB Music Awards ceremony is one of the biggest for Cantopop personalities. It is rumoured that TVB distributes the awards to those who are obedient to the company's demands, the Independent Commission Against Corruption has investigated the arrangement of the awards, it ruled. Afterwards, TVB reformed its music programmes in a bid to reestablish their authority. On the other hand, TVB was awarded the National Association of Broadcasters's International Broadcasting Excellence Award in 2001; the award recognised the company's outstanding contributions to the community through a wide range of charitable programmes and activities.
Hong Kong thus becomes the first city in Asia to receive this prestigious award in this area. In 2
