Wharf is now expect to focus on its main property business but will continue to operate free-to-air (FTA) channel Fantastic TV. I-Cable’s pay TV license will expire in May 2017 and it is due to respond to a 12-year renewal offer by 26 April 2017; an acceptance means commitment of HK$3.4billion ($438 million) investment for the first six years. Meanwhile, the company’s subsidiary Fantastic TV was awarded a free-to-air (FTA) broadcast license in May 2016, committing to an investment of HK$660million ($85million) in the first 18-42 months of its operation. Its FTA Cantonese channel is set to roll out in May this year.
