A smarter way to watch TV is heading into Kiwi homes thanks to an extended partnership of New Zealand broadcasters TVNZ, Mediaworks and Māori Television.

The trio (with support from Radio New Zealand) launched Freeview in May 2007 to help Kiwis transition from free-to-air analogue TV to digital TV. Now eight years later, with that transition complete, another transformation is about to occur with the launch of FreeviewPlus mid-2015.

FreeviewPlus will marry broadcast television with on-demand content allowing viewers to watch catch-up and premiere shows on their TV rather than solely a tablet or other connected device. Continue reading »
