At ATV, Chan is best known as the host of Baak Maan Fu Yung, the Hong Kong version of Who Wants to Be a Millionaire?. The show boosted his career. He had also played three different characters in the three seasons of the My Date with a Vampire television series trilogy, in which each character is related by cloning or reincarnation of the original in the first series.

In March 2009, ATV did not extend his contract thus Chan left ATV and joined CATV. In 2011, he returned to ATV but due to financial difficulties, ATV stopped producing enough TV programmes which lead to the decision to leave ATV again in 2013.
