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.

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

However, it appears as though TVNZ aren’t following their own embargo as the new logo now appears on their own website.
They will provide streaming access to subscribers while TVNZ will air one game every Sunday afternoon as well as a highlights package every Monday.
The new Premier League Pass website states that all 380 games of the season will be available to be streamed live with 250 available for on demand streaming.
