Why not deliver FreeviewPlus entirely over IP?
Broadcast TV is still the go-to in home entertainment for most New Zealanders: 3.5million New Zealanders watch an average of 20.5 hours of broadcast television each week – that’s 92% of us!
Accessibility is at one of the core values for us at Freeview, so naturally FreeviewPlus is very much focused on delivering content to the most preferred screen in the home.
Given also the available infrastructure, broadcasting is still the most cost-effective way to deliver the massive range of programmes available to homes throughout New Zealand.
As broadband delivery in New Zealand becomes more robust and as the use of other devices grow, we will review how we deliver FreeviewPlus.
