Rare footage documenting the history of rugby in New Zealand and some of the game’s greatest players will go to air on Maori Television during the Rugby World Cup 2011.

The Game of Our Lives, premiering on Maori Television on Tuesday 27 September at 8.30pm, is part of a suite of rugby-related content screening on the channel during the Rugby World Cup 2011.

Written by Finlay Macdonald, the four-part series presents rugby as a mirror of Zealand’s social history and identity, from the first rugby club in 1870 to the 1995 Rugby World Cup.  It also explores the game’s unique connection with Maori.

Each episode visits iconic paddocks (from schools to stadiums) and players (from amateurs Nepia, Meads, and Shelford, to professional star Lomu and his meeting with South African president Nelson Mandela in 1995).

Observers including historian Jock Phillips, writer Ian Cross and journalist TP Mclean muse on the influence of rugby on Kiwi culture.

Producer George Andrews says by understanding the grip rugby has on the New Zealand imagination you go a long way to knowing what kind of people we are.

He says rugby touches the pulse of New Zealand’s communities, large and small, Maori and Pakeha, young and old.

The Game of Our Lives is a timely reminder of how the game has shaped our national character as the All Blacks take the field for this year’s Rugby World Cup 2011.

Tune in to Maori Television at 8.30pm on Tuesday 27 September to find out more about the game that has captured the hearts and minds of a nations.

Four part documentary series The Game of Our Lives premieres on Tuesday 27 September at 8.30 to 9.30PM and runs until Thursday 18 October.

It has recently come to the attention of TV3 that NZNTM contestant Rosanagh Wypych did not declare in full her criminal convictions to the network.

While TV3 was aware of Rosanagh’s DIC conviction, she did not disclose a subsequent driving while disqualified incident  that had occurred prior to the start of filming and resulted in a second court appearance and conviction.

TV3 has investigated the matter, and Rosanagh remains in the running towards becoming New Zealand’s Next Top Model.

Kylie Price’s moving rendition of Beyonce’s “Ave Maria” has won her Good Morning’s Find A Star Champion’s title for 2011. 

Price headed off an exceptional group of performers to win the competition with a score of 39 out of 40 from judges Tina Cross, Bella Kalolo, Sydney-based Ambition Entertainment’s Robert Rigby and promoter Manolo Echave, as well as coming first on public text voting.

Price says the result took her by surprise.

“Every minute on stage was precious – there was so much talent with the other contestants. The best thing was performing for the audience. They really back you.”

Find A Star judge, Tina Cross says Kylie picked the most difficult song of the seven finalists and was very impressive.

“In the song her voice showed her light ethereal emotion, plus some grunt in the middle section. She also played so beautifully on guitar – to do both of those things brilliantly, good on her!”

Cross says the 18-year-old has great potential. “She has a great future as a performer because she can perform on her own in any environment.”

Kylie wins a trip for two to Sydney for meetings with music industry professionals, career design sessions with Gray Bartlett, and is set to record a single at Manuka Studios.

Second place was the charismatic 17-year-old Zac Taylor from Whakatane, who sang the Michael Buble song “Feeling Good”; and rising country star Jody Direen took third place with her performance of “When God Fearing Woman Gets the Blues”.

SKY performed well over the last year in an environment where the economy provided plenty of challenges.

With more than 1000 SKY employees at our Auckland, Albany and regional sites and almost 1000 contractors countrywide, their support and teamwork has been instrumental in the company’s continuing success.

In the year to 30 June 2011 SKY increased subscriber numbers, held churn at almost the same level as the previous year and continued its strong growth in the number of MY SKY decoders.

Currently more than 35% of all SKY subscribers now enjoy this personal video recorder technology.

John Fellet, SKY Chief Executive said, “SKY has had another excellent year, continuing to show gains across all key areas including growth in subscriber numbers, increased average revenue earned per subscriber and a continued reduction in churn. We have also been pleased with the performance of our free-to-air channel, Prime, which has continued to increase its share of advertising revenue”.

This year SKY launched its online TV website iSKY, in partnership with a number of NZ internet service providers,. With the government project to deliver UFB (ultra-fast broadband) to 75% of New Zealanders and the ever growing desire to consume content via devices other than the TV, in the future, iSKY will become a significant alternate to satellite for the delivery of content.

Eight new channels were added in 2011; TVNZ kidzone24, MTV Classic, Nick Jr, RT (Russia Today), Daystar, SKY Sport Mosaic, France 24 (in both English and French language).

Three new high definition channels were also launched; ESPN, SKY Sport 3 and SKY On Demand HD.

SKY continues to deliver excellent value to Sport enthusiasts with eight sport channels on offer.

The live broadcast of the Delhi Commonwealth Games; 5 dedicated Sport channels on SKY plus 17 hours a day live on Prime was one of the highlights from last year. The agreement to broadcast international Silver Ferns Netball complements the Trans-Tasman netball SKY already broadcasts.

John Fellet, SKY Chief Executive said, “We look towards the Rugby World Cup where we are poised to showcase to the world our expertise in sport production and to thrill sport subscribers with all live broadcasts of all 48 games.”

Total revenue was $796.9 million, a 7.4% increase compared to last year. This can in part be attributed to the 3.4% increase in new subscribers. 27,024 new subscribers joined SKY, bringing total subscribers to a new high of 829,421.

The number of MY SKY subscribers has continued to increase, typically attracting customers who watch more television. The total number of MY SKY HDi decoders, and was 279,875 at 30 June 2011, an increase of 10.6% from the previous year.

Operating costs were $475.2 million, a 5.9% increase on the previous year. The increase can be primarily attributed to the additional content costs associated with the launch of new channels, depreciation of OSB assets, increased advertising costs (associated with greater advertising revenue) and an increase in subscriber management costs.

SKY’s net profit rose by 16.8% to $120.3 million. SKY announced a fully imputed special dividend of 25 cents per share and an increase in the final dividend to 10.5 cents per share.

As of yesterday, SKY’s subscriber count was 836,622.
