International rugby will continue to be shown exclusively live on Sky Television until 2015 following a Sky announcement today.

Sky Television has reached a deal with Sanzar which sees their broadcast arrangements extend for another five years at least.

This means the new Super 15 competition starting next year will continue to be broadcast on the digital network along with all All Blacks tests. This includes the June home tests between the All Blacks and Northern Hemisphere opposition, the entire Tri Nations competition, and any tours to New Zealand, Australia and South Africa including the 2013 British and Irish Lions tour to Australia.

The Air New Zealand Cup will continue to be shown on Sky along with the top South African domestic competition.

NZRU chief executive Steve Tew confirmed the agreement. “The announcement that the Sanzar unions have signed agreements with Sky Television in New Zealand is a very positive step and we are delighted to be extending our long-standing partnership with Sky.”

He said details of the agreements would be formally announced “in due course”.

After months of speculation, TV3 has cancelled both Sunrise and ASB Business, a decision that is effective immediately with both shows airing for the last time this morning.

“We have not taken this decision lightly, and it has been the subject of a lot of debate and discussion at both a Board and Management level – ultimately it has been the Board’s decision,” said MediaWorks TV Executive Director, Ian Audsley.

“Unfortunately this decision results in at least 20 redundancies across the Television business and that is the toughest aspect for all of us at TV3. We are, however, able to offer redeployment in some cases.

“Despite the terrific work of the people involved and the commitment of everyone at TV3, we’ve not been able to make these programmes work financially. Today’s announcement is not a reflection on the calibre of the people involved in the production of the programmes. They’re as good and capable a team as any I’ve seen anywhere,” Mr Audsley said.

News as to what will be replacing the two shows will be confirmed shortly

UltraPlus has taken the New Zealand free to air Digital TV market by storm. The release of the latest models, the UltraPlus F-9000HD and 980HD PVRs, which feature the latest recording and network options, adds to the impressive range available from the award winning online retailer Freeviewshop.

 

The focus on quality is evident with all receivers in the UltraPlus range offering high spec processors and exceptional user interfaces. The latest models to be released, are the Linux based F-9000HD and the 980HD which feature true High Definition, DVBS/S2 tuners and the latest high speed ST7109 processor. The result is quality on an unsurpassable level. The picture detail is amazing; images are razor sharp with super fast motion handling. Menus are displayed in full HD with ultra modern smooth scrolling graphics.

 

The UltraPlus F-9000HD features twin satellite tuners that allow you to record up to two channels while watching another and even picture in picture on a further channel. The Electronic Program Guide (EPG) is received from the satellite broadcast itself unlike other PVRs on the market which require a broadband connection. The EPG is buffered while you watch TV and loads instantly at the touch of a button. Multiple EPG views allow easy booking of programs to be recorded. Ads can even be skipped in their entirety using the commercial skip function.

 

With 2 USB ports there are also plenty of options that make it easy to access recorded files. Files can be transferred to a PC direct via Ethernet or via a USB pen drive, via a USB HDD, via a network attached HD and even via a WIFI adaptor. Plug-ins can also be installed that allow easy access to PVR functions via a web browser and many other plug-ins can be installed to do clever things such as monitor the hard drive temperature!

 

But one of the really exciting features of the UltraPlus F-9000HD and 980HD is their network capabilities. By networking any number of these units you can record to a shared network attached drive, or even share the internal drive of the F-9000 or a USB HDD attached to the F-9000 or 980. This is a great option if you want to access the same files from multiple receivers. You can say start playing back a movie in one room and then can carry on watching it in another room from a different receiver.

 

It is no surprise that the equivalent UltraPlus F-9000HD in Germany has received top ratings from many satellite reviews and has received various awards in technical innovation. Indeed the UltraPlus equivalent models have won over 15 awards in various markets including the Best Product Award at the Korea IT Show.

Last night when Close Up‘s Mark Sainsbury covered discussions around the Easter Road Toll, little did anyone realise that there was a very personal connection.  When he questioned how Australia, with a population several times our own could deliver a road toll that was nearly the same as ours, it became far more apparent that the question wasn’t just coming from a reporter but from someone who had been deeply affected personally over the weekend.

At the end of the show, Mark read out a statement of condolence to his extended family while fighting back the tears.  Kia Kaha he told them.

17 year old Blair Sainsbury’s body was found at 11:40am on Monday morning after he went missing on Sunday evening.  Blair had taken part in the Tiniroto Easter Game Hunt, of which his father Guy Sainsbury was the competition president.

An empty vehicle had been found about 80m down a bank with his body being found a short distance away, suggesting that Blair may have briefly survived the accident.

Blair’s death bought the Easter Road Toll to its highest in 17 years.

3 News is outrating One News in its own target audience of 25-54 year olds nationally.  For the month of March, 3 News recorded a 31.3% share, compared with One News’ 27.5% share, down a whopping 23.0% compared to their 35.6% share this time last year.

In TV3’s own key demographic (18-49 national) the figures see 3 News sitting on a 32.2% share, comfortably ahead of One News on a 22.8% share, a massive 25.9% drop from the 30.8% share they held this time in 2009.

In the 18-49 Auckland Urban demographic, 3 News went from a 28.5 to a 33.5 share, showing growth year-on-year of 17.5%. In the same demographic One News went from a 28.3 to a 14.3, a staggering decrease of 49.3%.

One News also showed a decrease in most key demographics, with a decrease in the 25-54 Auckland Urban demographic – ending March 2010 on a 17.8% share – a drop of 44.6% compared to March 2009. By comparison 3 News ended March up 7.8% year-on-year in the same demographic with a 31.6% share.

Mark Jennings, Director of News and Current Affairs comments: “2010 has been a great year so far for 3 News, and it is very pleasing to be gaining share in the 25-54 demographic.  It shows that we have strength right across the board. Keeping our loyal viewers happy but continuing to draw younger people into watching the news is an important strategy for us.

Jennings adds: “This year we have put considerable resource into stories like the Haiti earthquake and the Inquiry into the Sinking of the Princess Ashika.  TVNZ didn’t send reporters to either and I think it has been noticed. “
