Hong Kong as Backup TV Centre for French-Speaking World
17 April 2014
Hong Kong is French-speaking broadcaster TV5 Monde’s backup centre for the world, outside its headquarters in Paris. The Hong Kong Office features large server capacity and a network operating centre. The Asia Pacific is the fastest growing market for the broadcaster’s TV shows , says Alexandre Muller, the station’s regional Managing Director. Hong Kong’s geographical position and technology-rich capabilities make it a better choice than Singapore, according to Mr Muller.
