New Zealand’s first internet based TV network has arrived and its name is Ziln.

The ambitious start up is aiming for 100,000 visitors a month to view their niche channels within the first six months of their launch.  TelstraClear is backing the venture in the hopes of showcasing its fibre networks in Wellington and Christchurch.

The service will also eventually be extended and made available to set-top boxes and iphones
