NZ On Air invests in authentically New Zealand stories and songs

A government public media funding agency - we invest in diverse media content for local television, radio, and digital media as well as music for New Zealand audiences. In 2017 we are transitioning to a new single strategy and platform neutral fund, the NZ Media Fund.


Putting New Zealanders in the picture — our stories and people on television

We invest more than $80 million a year in local television programmes on mainstream free-to-air channels and on demand sites and in multi-platform regional media. It's so that you can see more, and a wider variety of, local content.


Bringing an extensive range of New Zealand voices to the airwaves

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.


Championing New Zealand music — on radio, on television, and online

Our music mission is to get more New Zealand music on radio, online, on any platform where the audience is.


Digital media content reaching audiences wherever they are

Digital technologies provide new opportunities for viewing and sharing content. We support diverse projects and fund platforms to support content discovery.
