Our History

Launched in 2007 by the leading New Zealand free-to-air broadcasters TVNZ, MediaWorks, Māori Television and Radio New Zealand, we started with a satellite platform offering just 4 TV stations. 

Now we offer more than 20 TV and radio stations, available through both satellite and UHF, including local content across regional stations and 3 stations with high definition broadcasts you can pick up through your UHF aerial.

For more information about channels and content, see our channels list and online TV guide.
