NowTV to Increase Fees

By Butterboom Writers  /  January 17, 2007


I love NowTV! All those years in the 90’s complaining about the crappy TV in Hong Kong was solved with broadband TV. Now I get to remember how to waste time by watching too much TV. I don’t subscribe to the full package but get selective channels like MTV Southeast Asia, E, CNBC, Discovery etc. all for amazingly low prices.

But there is the rub, NowTV is going to raise prices by 16% this year because they spent an amazing US$200 million on football broadcast rights. So from the current $388 to $450. Which isn’t bad but some people are already complaining.

There’s always iCable that lowered their prices to $308.
