Bringing together FDD and TDD networks has enabled 3 Hong Kong to enter the 4.5G era and provide an even smoother data service.
Jennifer Tan, Chief Operating Officer of HTHKH, said: "Our smooth and stable network, together with abundant bandwidth from our 4.5G network, provides the capacity needed to build an OTT service platform, so we are now ready to carry all kinds of dynamic mobile apps. myTV SUPER has become one of the most popular OTT offerings following inception earlier this year – and we are delighted to offer 12 months' service free of charge to all 3 Hong Kong's 4G users to help celebrate launch of our 4.5G network. This amounts to a truly superlative entertainment experience delivered by our sophisticated OTT platform."
SK Cheong, General Manager of Television Broadcasts Limited, said: "According to a recent survey into local people's viewing habits, the average time spent watching TV and video was 31 hours per week, while young people spent more time watching programmes online. In order to attract greater numbers of young viewers, we need a more diverse variety of programmes that can be watched anytime, anywhere, as well as a high-speed and stable network.
