New harbourfront space opens

The Development Bureau announced that the Pierside Precinct near Wan Chai Ferry Pier further opened today, providing a nostalgic harbourfront leisure space with a panoramic view of Victoria Harbour for the public.   Being the 12th harbourfront leisure space that opened since October last year, the newly opened area is located to the east of the ferry pier on a harbour site reclaimed for the construction of the Central-Wan Chai Bypass.   The bureau said under the incremental approach, a 180-metre-long promenade of the precinct opened earlier in March, followed by the opening of a further 80m in October.   With an area of about 4,600 sq m, the newly opened part has almost doubled the precinct's original space.   In contrast to the colourful cartoon style adopted at other harbourfront sites opened earlier in Western District and Wan Chai, the precinct mainly comprises simple fair-faced concrete and wooden structures.   It features a stylish touch with its clear and rectiline

New TV frequencies reminder issued

The Office of the Communications Authority announced today that six digital TV programme channels in Hong Kong will use new transmitting frequencies starting December 1.   Property owners and managers who have not yet arranged with their contractors to reconfigure the common antenna broadcast distribution (CABD) systems of their buildings must act immediately, the office said.   Otherwise, residents may not be able to continue receiving the TV programme channels concerned after midnight on that day, it added.   The six channels are Jade 81 of Television Broadcasts Limited, ViuTVsix 96 and ViuTV 99 of HK Television Entertainment Company Limited and RTHK TV 31, RTHK TV 32 and RTHK TV 33 of Radio Television Hong Kong.   So far around 90% of households in multi-storey buildings with CABD systems in Hong Kong have completed the reconfiguration work.   Upon the completion of the reconfiguration of their CABD systems by contractors and on their advice, property owners and managers should inform the residents that they may need to rescan for the TV programme channels on their digital TV receivers.   Property managers should pay particular attention to the elderly, ethnic minorities and residents with special needs and provide appropriate assistance as necessary.   Households using self-provided antennae, including residents of village houses, bungalows and old tenement buildings, do not need to adjust their digital TV receivers or antennae at this juncture.   They should rescan for TV programme channels on their digital TV receivers only if they cannot receive any of the TV programme channels after midnight on December 1.   Call 2961 6333 for enquiries.   Click here for the guide on rescanning digital TV programme channels.
