TVNZ Heartland is a pay TV channel operated by TVNZ featuring only New Zealand made shows, mostly re-runs of classic shows as well as more recent shows. While TVNZ channels are traditionally available free to air, TVNZ Heartland is available exclusively to Sky Digital subscribers. The channel broadcasts on Sky Digital channel 17.
Heartland launched on 1 June 2010, 50 years to the day that TV broadcasting began in New Zealand. The first show introduced From the Archives, a compilation series of five decades of classic New Zealand TV shows.
In 2015, it was announced that TVNZ Heartland would permanently close down on May 31 that year, after TVNZ and SKY decided not to renew broadcast agreements.
