We invest more than $80 million a year in local television programmes on mainstream and regional free-to-air channels. It's so that you can see more, and a wider variety of, local content.
Our funding of Public radio, Access radio, Pacific radio and spoken radio programmes for multiple platforms ensures a voice for all New Zealanders on the airwaves. Supporting Community broadcasting is an important part of our overall strategy.
Our music mission is to get more New Zealand music played on the radio, on television and online. We fund songs and videos for broadcast and we help to promote them.
A new series that promises to be a ‘bold voice in Māori current affairs’ has been supported by NZ On Air as part of its ongoing Platinum Fund support for specialist current affairs programmes.
Audiences who enjoy documentaries are being invited to experience a more interactive way of factual story-telling with four new online interactive projects funded by NZ On Air.
