TVMost (Chinese: 毛記電視) is a Hong Kong online video platform established by Most Kwai Chung, the company which also runs Hong Kong magazine 100Most. It aims to upload numbers of sarcastic videos for Hong Kong citizens in a daily matter, so the public can realize the latest events happening in Hong Kong in an entertaining way.[1] Its slogan is "Do our best instead of not having a TV license issued by the Government" (Chinese: 全力以赴,無牌仲好).[2]

Background[edit]

TVMost is built up by Roy Tsui (Chinese: 林日曦), the founder of the magazine Black Paper, 100Most and the publication house White Paper on May 18, 2015. It offers various programmes such as news, variety show and documentary online uploaded in an irregular basis. In addition, latest videos were posted to related social media sites, such as their official Facebook page,[3] Instagram account[4] and website. TVMost also welcomes advertisements in iMedia formats and co-op projects from advertisers for the sake of creating advertorial videos and promote the products in a humorous way.[1]

Style[edit]

The style of programmes in TVMost is features plenty of satire and humour, which is similar to the magazine of its parent company 100Most, with editorials reported in a funny and sarcastic style.[1] As their programmes make fun of the Hong Kong Government and controversial social issues by covering the hottest and most recent topic in Hong Kong, it resonates with the audience that abhors the power establishment in the city.[5] Famous local celebrities such as Gloria Yip, Gregory Wong and Akina Fong often act as special guests in the shows, especially in ‘Most News’ and ‘Ging Cook Gum Cook’, which further attracts audience's attention.

The duration of these programmes are mostly around a few minutes, probably less than 10. The founder of TVMost, Roy Tsui explained that people nowadays are busier and have shorter attention span. Therefore, their programmes will be tailor made to cater the taste and pace of local dwellers, which turns out to be a great success.[6]
