TVNZ Remains Committed To Free-To-Air Digital

TVNZ Remains Committed To Free-To-Air Digital Service

TVNZ is disappointed that CanWest (TV3 and TV4) has chosen not to support a proposed digital free-to-air service. TVNZ believes that the conversion from analogue to digital television will inevitably occur over time.

TVNZ had offered CanWest free access and an equal partnership to the proposed free-to-air digital platform.

TVNZ General Manager Strategy James Munro said that as New Zealand's leading broadcaster, TVNZ remains committed to ensuring that all New Zealanders can continue to view free-to-air television in the future without the need to subscribe to a pay television service.

"It is disappointing for New Zealand's television viewers that once digital migration has occurred at some time in the future, they will only be able to watch TV3 and TV4 if they subscribe to a pay television service," said Mr Munro.
