Television broadcast[edit]

For the 2011–12 season, Now TV's channel 634 will become the Hong Kong Football Channel. The first live broadcast of the season will be Kitchee vs Sun Hei SC on 3 September 2011. The production cost will be sponsored by the TV station and supported by HKFA and the clubs. Advertising revenues, after subtracting Now TV's costs, will be shared with HKFA.[7] Now TV announced that the channel will be free to all Now TV subscribers. The production cost of the channel is about HK$40 million. Now TV hopes that the Hong Kong government will subsidise the channel in the future, because they will also broadcast Hong Kong's inter-school matches.[8]

As Sun Hei has decided not to take part in the TV broadcast package, the HKFA has imposed four broadcast sanctions: No live home game broadcasts, no division of advertising revenues, no interviews or feature programmes of team personnel and no mention of their sponsors' names.[9] Faced with these sanctions, Sun Hei's Chung Chi Kwong continued to say the club has the right to spend its resources the way they like and will not change its mind due to external influences.[10]
