In order to know clearly the success factors of I-Cable (business strategies, promotion, price, the programme quality, supporting service) we acquire to ask a number of questions. (http//www.now-tv.com)CableTV VS Now TV Why batch choose Pay-TV? What channel of people in contact Pay-TV? Which one is more famous? What is the relationship between factors and the attitude of people towards watch Cable-TV/Now-TV?How do people ineluctably changing?Can Cable-TV/Now-TV meet these changing take away? The answer will be found in the following.Objective and research questionsBelow are the main points of the objectives of this research Study the general demographic of target customers.

Examine the Supporting service of Pay-TV.Well analyze the market theories such as 7Ps of market strategies form the results of research. The answers of the above are based on the relevant literature, and the sampling interview. The all detail as follows.Critical review of relevant literatureThere are 5 parts of critical review, the first 4 parts are the finding form the relevant literature. The last 2 parts are the introduction of market dodge of them, and the review of this part.1. The main difference between free-charge TV and Pay-TVAccording the literature, Free-charge TV offer mainly entertainment programme, and the major of programme are make by themselves.and their programme focuses on popular habit.However, Pay-TV offer over 100 overseas TV channel and Sport direct seeding, and some of this programme is information programme what offers professional knowledge, the information of special habit to people. (Kotler, P. and G. Armstrong (2008)) In these years, more and more people are willing to pay silver watching Pay-TV. The reasons are easy to understand, the two local free-charge TV bank building satisfy the people, and three-year-old people who aged about 20, their needs of watching TV are changing. In the pass, people treat TV as their main entertainment everyday. How ever, the young have much other entertainments, and they watch TV in order to watch sport competition, get information. It means Pay-TV still has a great potential market in the overture years.2. The current competition of Pay-TV market in Hong Kong3. The promotion strategies of two Pay-TV particular(a) The promotion strategies of them is similar, their promotion focus the potential customers who have special needs such habit (cooking, religion, drama) or want to watch non-local TV programme (Discovery Channel, CC TV). And their promotion are also similar, the number of TV programme and sport direct seeding are their selling points. Now TV is more emphasize their promotion to attract the potential customer now, but Cable TV just keep quality of their original service. In fact, people used to watch Cable TV because their longer history and people know their quality of TV programme more. In marketing, Cable-TV is like a cash-cow, 4. The famous TV programmeCable TV has the excellent give-and-take TV programme, and English fusion direct seeding. It is one of the reasons why Cable TV can maintain market share. Although English league may be not the highest level football league ( umteen people hold up Spain league is be approach the highest league in recently years and the Spain league direct seeding is offered by Now-TV in the future 3 years.), However, anyone know that major of Hong Kong people like to watch English league more than others. Additionally, Cable TV has also the direct seeding of champions of league and World Cup in 2010. It is a great competitive advantage with Now-TV in this year and the coming 3 years. (The newest situation of people needs change)5. The relationships between factors and the attitude of young people towards I-Cable/Now-TVThere are some factor will catch young people how to choose which Pay-TV.a) Price(extend)Cable TV adopt non- selectivity Price(packaging of service), we need to buy a number of channel at the same time Now T V offers selectivity Price, we can pay a basic free, so the extra-charge are based on each channel, but Now TV are also offer a price for the packaging of all services. According one news, a great number of people are unsatisfying because Cable TV increase the basic charge from $239 to $259, and the extra-charge of football direct seeding. (http//hk.news.yahoo.com/article/091124/4/fbx5.html)b) Promotionc) Sport direct seeding (extend)It is one important factors why Cable TV success and they can increase the price in a bad economy. Cable TV turn over a high cost to get the right of footfall direct seeding, and increase the price to cover the cost. It is their strategy. However, they may ignore the young people needs change.In recently years, English coalition is successful in Hong Kong, it has many factors such as the time of competition, and football player stars. However, the Spain League are willing to start early in the next year, and many stars transfer from English league to Spain League. It may make people like watch Spain league more. (http//hk.news.yahoo.com/article/091120/4/fa0e.html)d) Technique supporting and customer service (extend)Cable TV had a developed supporting strategy early, but they dont improve anything. However, Now TV usually improves their Technique supporting system. I believe Now TV will have a developed system what is better than Cable in the coming some(prenominal) years.6. Market strategies(extend)Pay-TV adopts the Concentrated Marketing (Kotler, P. and G. Armstrong 2008)(Where the organization concentrates its marketing effort on one particular segment.
