More FM to broadcast The X Factor NZ live on the radio

XFactorNZ2In a bid to reach more people, MediaWorks will have More FM simulcast The X Factor NZ’s live performance and results shows.

The X Factor NZ co-executive producer Andrew Szusterman says: “This isn’t about putting the stereo next to the TV, it’s about all those New Zealanders working nightshift, travelling the country or for any other reason not being able to get to the television – but who want to experience The X Factor at the same time as the rest of the country.

“With the More FM network covering the show live The X Factor has the country’s eyes and ears covered.”

The X Factor NZ live Shows are broadcast Sundays 7pm and Mondays 8pm on TV3 from 19 May.  

The first two live Shows, on May 19 and 20 feature performances by The X Factor NZ Top 12, guest star Willy Moon, the Kiwi-born singer making waves in the UK, a special performance by one of The X Factor NZ judges, and the first Top 12 elimination!

    Thats extremely desperate if people want to ‘experience’ the X factor they will watch it either online later or pvr it.

    • Well, if I was a fan who couldn’t watch TV on the night, I’d happily listen to the live results show on the Monday. The performance show is more visual, but Sunday evenings are pretty dead for radio anyway, so I’m sure More FM would get more listeners than without the X Factor.

        I agree (as always) @twitter-7180552:disqus. I think it’s a very good idea! I would definitely listen to it on the radio if I didn’t have access to a TV.

  • The question is, can the More FM stream be listened to outside of New Zealand?
