Television Broadcasts Limited

Television Broadcasts Limited, commonly known as TVB, is the first wireless commercial television station in Hong Kong. It was first established on 19 November 1967 with only about 200 staff. TVB is now the largest Chinese programmes producer in the world, with a size of about 5,000 including contract artistes and staff in overseas subsidiary companies.

The current chairman is Run Run Shaw. It owns two channels in Hong Kong, PRC, namely TVB Jade and TVB Pearl. TVB Jade owns the largest audience shares in Hong Kong and is often refered to as simply TVB.

Location

To enhance its services to the public and to cope with future development, the Company started moving to the state-of-the-art Tseung Kwan O TVB City in late 2002. The new TVB City, with an area of over 110,000 sq metre, 30% more than the TV City at Clear Water Bay Road, is fully digitized. Relocation has been completed.
