TVNZ Kidzone was a 24-hour New Zealand children's channel service run by state broadcaster Television New Zealand.

Kidzone was originally a 12-hour service running on former TVNZ channel TVNZ 6. It then ran on TVNZ 7 for a year before its closure in 2012. TVNZ launched TVNZ Kidzone as TVNZ Kidzone24 from 1 May 2011 until 30 April 2016.

The channel ran on Digital 106, channel 46 on Sky[1] and channel 14 on Igloo.

TVNZ closed the channel on 30 April 2016, due to SKY's contract with TVNZ expiring at the end of that month. Now it is on TVNZ OnDemand as of May 1, 2016.[2]
