Since 2006, the Library provides recorded local TV programs from three free TV broadcast companies (ATV, RTHK and TVB). Programs are mainly subjected to news and public affairs. For effective preservation and easier access for Library users, some licensed episodes produced are converted into online streaming videos. Users may login to access restricted resources through HKSYUtube for online viewings.
