As announced on HKTV’s Facebook page, the station’s official launch will be on November 19th (the day of TVB’s anniversary). Various HKTV artists have already confirmed that they have already filmed the promo clips for the launch (though most of them were not aware of the official launch date).
I’m not really interested in commenting on HKTV choosing to launch their station on the same day as TVB’s anniversary because to me, it doesn’t really matter – after all, it’s just a date…what matters more is the quality of HKTV’s programs and the services they have to offer, which is more important in my opinion.
Along with the announcement of the official launch date, HKTV has also started up the poll on their official webpage where audiences can vote for which HKTV series they would most like to see – the series that gets the most votes will be the first series aired starting on November 19th.
Here is the link to the website: HKTV webpage
P.S.: It’s probably no secret that I’ve been waiting to watch Borderline ever since HKTV aired the first episode on Youtube last year. So of course, it should not come as a surprise that I already cast my vote for Borderline!
Below is a screenshot from HKTV's official webpage that shows all their series as well as the running tally of votes for each. As of this writing, the 2 series with the most votes are The Election (starring Angelica Lee and Liu Kai Chi) and Borderline (starring Dominic Lam, Liu Kai Chi, Lawrence Chau, Leila Tong, etc.)
** NOTE: Voting ends 11/9. The results will be announced on 11/10.
