Chunghwa Telecom looking overseas with original content

New Chairman Cheng has ambitions to lead 'a digital media company'

TAIPEI -- Chunghwa Telecom, Taiwan's fourth-largest company by market capitalization and the island's largest telecom operator, is betting on original video content to drive growth and foster overseas business at a time when its existing services face a stronger challenge from local cable TV companies. 

"We are making plans now, and starting next year we will begin to invest in" production of original content, Chunghwa Telecom Chairman David Cheng said Tuesday at his office in downtown Taipei, without specifying how much the company will spend on the new initiative.
