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.
The amount of local content on NZ free-to-air television increased last year, however new programme hours continued to decline. Underlying trends though are more revealing of shifts in what’s on our screens.
NZ On Air and the Canada Media Fund (CMF) announced today a financing package of CDN $1 million for three digital media co-production projects under the Canada-New Zealand Digital Media Fund.
