Hi, been trying out Igloo's $1 on demand movies and read into Netflix and Hulu services.  Does anyone know if HK TV is of an option?  Currently the folks pay $80 for SD with WTV thru Sky TV a month not including the standard Sky channels.

HKTV didn't get its broadcasting licence right? The only thing available is that one episode of police drama?

I have one and it works okay. Gives you free access to Pearl, ATV and bunch of channels in China. Some of the channels are live and some are delayed.
 
Quality is variable (but that could be my VDSL connection) and everything is in Chinese so you have to be a good guesser (!) or of course be able to read Chinese.
