Radio Television Hong Kong (RTHK) is the public broadcaster of Hong Kong est in 1928, operated as an independent government department under the Communications Authority.
RTHK operates seven radio channels, three television channels, and produces television programmes that are then broadcast through local television stations in Hong Kong. While it is government funded, it has a reputation for maintaining editorial independence. RTHK produces and broadcasts educational, entertainment and public affairs programmes. Since 2006, there has been debate whether or not to transform RTHK into a public corporation.
Radio 4 is the only fine music channel in Hong Kong. Except Western classical music, Radio 4 also broadcast Chinese music, Jazz music, Modern music and world music. In 2009, RTHK founded the RTHK Quartet to promote chamber music in Hong Kong.
