omsa-logoThe self imposed Online Media Standards Authority starts accepting complaints from Monday July 1st which is strange considering their attempt to regulate themselves before something official was introduced failed.  It’s anyones guess as to how long this lasts or how toothless it will be.

The Online Media Standards Authority, “OMSA”, which oversees online news and current affairs content standards for New Zealand broadcasters, begins accepting complaints on Monday.

OMSA was developed by the broadcasting industry to fill a gap in the existing regulatory model.  It provides a cost effective and consumer friendly solution to regulate online news and current affairs content. Continue reading »

robin-bain-elimination-printThe New Zealand Police have responded to TV3’s 3rd Degree program last night with some interesting comments.

I am mindful that this theory has been put forward through a programme whose makers chose not to seek comment from police prior to broadcast, and who also refused to provide details about their story when approached by police on Tuesday.

“Had they done so then we would have pointed out that fingerprints had been presented in evidence and have always been available through the court to help them decide if their story stacked up.”

I hope this isn’t part of the TV One rebrand.

antonia-prebbleNew Zealand actress Antonia Prebble has landed a role in a new Australian series.

The former Outrageous Fortune actress has joined the cast of ANZAC Girls, a six-part ABC mini-series based on the true story of five young military nurses from Australia and New Zealand at both Gallipoli and the Western Front.

Prebble, who has been seen recently in The Blue Rose, will be joined in the cast by Georgia Flood (House Husbands, Wentworth, Tangle), Laura Brent (A Few Best Men, Chronicles of Narnia: Voyage of the Dawn Treader), Anna McGahan (House Husbands, Mystery of a Hansom Cab, Underbelly: Razor) and Caroline Craig (Underbelly, Dangerous Remedy, Blue Heelers).

house-rulesTV3 announced they are bringing one of the most popular Australian shows at the moment to our screens in July. So, what is it all about?

House Rules is the latest reality series from the makers of My Kitchen Rules and as the title suggests, it’s based around home renovation.

The series sees six teams of two hand over the keys to their houses and let their rival teams transform every room in their house.

Each home will come with a set of ‘House Rules’ (do’s and don’ts basically) set out by the owners for which their rival teams can choose to follow, bend or break. Continue reading »

Last week we learned that TVNZ was giving the TV One logo a bit of a refresh.

The TV ONE logo is being updated as of Monday 1st July. The logo is embargoed until this date.

From the 1st July onward could you please use attached logos in all print and online publications. Please note, this date is the actual date not the on sale date.

However, it appears as though TVNZ aren’t following their own embargo as the new logo now appears on their own website.
