With TVNZ’s news and entertainment line-up firing on all cylinders, half of those watching TV in July spent their nights locked on TV ONE or TV2 – the network’s strongest share result in three years.

TVNZ’s channels were in formidable form between 5:30 to 10:30pm, TV’s most popular and competitive time zone. The network’s combined share was 50.3% for AP5+ in July. In the key trading demos, the double act took a 48.2% cut of TV ONE’s 25-54 target audience and 47.5% in TV2’s 18-49 demo.

This is the first in a series of posts we’ll be publishing this week about channel share and how each of the main players have been performing for the last few years.

Following on from last weeks self inflicted embargo breach, TVNZ is continuing to fail to adhere to its own usage policy.  Squashing your logo horizontally isn’t allowed guys.  Tsk tsk…


So TV ONE has rebranded. I do hope it didn’t cost them more than $100 bucks as I could have pointed out to them how to un-italisise their font for free. Then again those within the Deathstar that control the chequebook would have had to have been listening! Continue reading »
