01 March 1998

AS PREDICTED [Debrief Daily E-Bulletin, 6/11/97] Hong Kong has become the world's first major city to plug into fully interactive TV. The system was launched by the chief executive of Hong Kong Telecom who announced: 'Hong Kong is ready for the arrival of a new era - the information age.' The overwhelming local passion of horse-racing is available at any time on demand, alongside the usual mix of pay-movies, home banking and shopping.
