We invest more than $80 million a year in local television programmes on mainstream free-to-air channels and in multi-platform regional media. 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.
Against a backdrop of rapid media change and a flood of international content NZ On Air’s report to Parliament on its achievements in the 2015/16 year shows ongoing commitment to getting local content to New Zealand audiences.
NZ On Air has committed $9.35m in funding in its latest decisions for special interest television programmes, many of them offering insights to and appreciation of our multi-ethnic culture.
NZ On Air is moving to a single funding strategy for all content investments, in order to remain flexible and relevant in a fast-changing, converging media environment.
