TVNZ OnDemand is a New Zealand online television viewing and downloading service offered by Television New Zealand since 2007. It offers a variety of free content, such as news updates and programmes seen on TVNZ channels.[1] TVNZ OnDemand offers most of the programmes broadcast on air with licensing agreements to be shown for users in New Zealand. The content is placed within an hour of the shows transmission and is available for 7 to 30 Days on the website.

TVNZ OnDemand was launched on 20 March 2007 and is available on PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4 via the TVNZ app on PlayStation Network for New Zealanders. It is also available on iOS, Android, Xbox One and Windows 10.


TVNZ OnDemand was featured in newspapers and radio interviews because a young teenager was able to access the unreleased website and start downloading shows.[2]


Content streamed though TVNZ OnDemand was previously[when?] charged for. All content is now free, ad-supported, with advertisements being shown before, during and after videos.

Watch First[edit]

From 2012[citation needed], TVNZ OnDemand began uploading episodes of select shows prior to their airing on TVNZ channels and usually within a day of their original overseas airings (although sometimes this was weeks or months after their international airing). In September 2014, it was announced that episodes of seventeen shows would be uploaded within a day of their airings in the US, coinciding with the 2014-2015 season.[3] One of the shows, Manhattan Love Story was cancelled by the US network ABC, but episodes continued to be uploaded to TVNZ OnDemand in line with their intended US airings, making TVNZ the de facto original broadcaster of the series.

TVNZ Kidzone[edit]

On 1 May 2016 (01.06 am), when TVNZ Kidzone (channel version) closed it is now on TVNZ OnDemand with lot of the shows to watch (it is still use the former channel programs). On TVNZ Kidzone (TVNZ OnDemand version) on 26 June 2016, the logo changed its definition (in bold) to a scribble version. Formerly known as TVNZ Kidzone24 from 1 May 2011 to 25 April 2015
