Shine TV coming to Freeview Satellite

Shine TV will soon be available to even more people through Freeview Satellite. Here’s the info:

  • From April 1 you’ll be able to find us on Channel 25 on Freeview Satellite
  • Freeview Satellite is also known as DTH (Direct to Home) and is different to terrestrial Freeview
  • You will need a satellite dish and a Freeview satellite decoder/receiver – but don’t worry if you don’t have these, we hope to be able to help you get both! Stay tuned for a special offer.
  • Freeview Satellite means that Shine TV has the potential to reach the entire country!

    Shine is also available free to air in Christchurch and is on the Sky platform too.

    What about the BBC stations on freeview, they have much better show than the crappie NZ station, they have “Murder she wrote” just to name one, you can get their programs off Internet, so when will BBC stations come to freeview and give us quality not vomit medicine?

    can sum1 explain why a lot of the broadcasters put their channels on the satellite platform and not the terrestrial one??

    Would be great if the new 24 hour ABC News channel was broadcast into NZ, but probably won’t happen though.
