TV One And TV2 To Be Available On Sky Digital


TV ONE AND TV2 TO BE AVAILABLE ON SKY DIGITAL

TVNZ Chairman Dr Ross Armstrong today announced an agreement between TVNZ and Sky Television that will see TV ONE and TV2 available on the Sky Digital platform from 1 December 2001.

The agreement provides TVNZ with a low cost digital expansion option, while TV ONE and TV2, with 73 % of the total New Zealand television audience, will be available to Sky digital subscribers through the satellite platform.

TVNZ Chief Executive Rick Ellis said that the agreement will ensure that TV ONE and TV2 are available to New Zealand television viewers in a digital environment.

"In addition to providing TVNZ with carriage of TV ONE and TV2 on the Sky digital platform, the agreement gives TVNZ the option to introduce additional channels, plus interactive extensions for TV ONE and TV2 in the future.

"An important aspect of the agreement will see TV ONE and TV2 occupy positions 1 and 2 on the Sky Electronic Programme Guide and the Sky remote. "TVNZ and Sky have also agreed to co-operate on the future development of interactive services," said Mr Ellis.

As part of the agreement, Sky Television will continue to make its set top boxes available for rental to those viewers only requiring free to air services.
