    Wouldn’t describe an on screen banner as interupting normal programming. If that was the cause, every program in Australia would be interupted by channel promos.

    no.. that was just prior to crossing to Rawden in the studio

    TV3 broke the story first at 3:38pm (TVNZ at 3:53pm), following a more in-depth update at 4:00 (by TV3).

    Not near a TV at the moment, has this turned into rolling coverage until 6PM or anything? I would imagine both news rooms are happy the event is in Auckland as more resources can be chucked at it for cheaper cost.

  • Prime TV

    Prime actually went to air with full coverage from Sky News at 5.00 and is continuing with a full Prime News bulletin now.

  • regan

    Prime are the only ones with coverage at the moment.
