 New Zealand Television New Zealand Provides content on a contractual basis [118]

Internationally, TVNZ has helped provide television services in Pacific Island nations such as the Cook Islands, Fiji, and the Solomon Islands.

TVNZ provides much of the programming but scheduling and continuity are done locally.

  • Because of its history TVNZ has inherited and developed its own services in the production and broadcasting services area.
  • These include The New Zealand Television Archive, production facilities, television school.
  • TVNZ also operated a satellite services division organising and downlink facilities and across the globe, but this service was wound down in 2005.

Both TV One and TV2 are also available "in the clear" over DVB-S on Optus B1. A SKY TV set-top box is not required as any DVB-S satellite set-top box or tuner will work.
