Coverage Maps

The UHF coverage maps are kindly supplied by Transmission Providers for UHF TV Transmission, sometimes referred to as DTT, or Digital Terrestrial Transmission.

UHF is the signal type that powers Freeview|HD.  Each transmission tower broadcasts TV to the homes around it, so you can get extra regional TV stations.

It's available to 86% of New Zealand homes and you can pick it up using a UHF aerial, check your coverage here to see if you can get Freeview|HD.

Select from the dropdown list below any region to view its coverage map.  

For a full list of regions and the signal type available for each, please see here.

The other method of transmission used in New Zealand is via satellite (also termed Direct to Home, or DTH).

DTH is what enables Freeview Satellite to be received by 100% of New Zealand homes using a satellite dish.  Since satellite transmission covers the whole of New Zealand in exactly the same way, no coverage maps are required for this.
