With the restrictions that TVB are laying on the appearance of their contracted singers on other TV channels, this has raised some criticism from the public. There have been accusations that in doing this, TVB may have breached Section 13 of the Broadcasting Regulations. Yesterday, TVB boss Ho Ding Kwan was quizzed about TVB's monopolisation and whether this is in breach of the rules, he revealed he is unclear about this and will be passed the relevant information from TVB's legal department.

Mr Ho says that if artistes have signed as singers, but appear in a different role at other TV stations then this is not a problem. As for Eric Tsang's comments that because TVB is so big it is affecting the progress of the station, Mr Ho did not comment on this.
