Newspaper, Radio & TV on Your Office PC

by Angela Tang

The successful implementations of Intranet and VideoNet have opened up a series of new services. Now sitting comfortably in your office, you can read newspaper, listen to the radio or even watch TV all on your networked PC.

In the past, you might be used to buying a newspaper on your way to work. Why not change your habit and read the electronic version being delivered to your PC instead? It is absolutely free no matter how many of them you read. You may also glance at all the headlines and clippings of different newspapers.

To learn what is happening in Hong Kong and worldwide, you may want to listen to the hourly updated News Summary of RTHK.

If listening is not good enough, you can watch the Cable TV news channels. There are totally six news channels including Cable News 1, Cable News 2, CNN, BBC, Discovery Channel and CNBC which bring you the most up-to-date local and worldwide news. The broadcasting of the Disney Deal is a good example.
