We invest more than $80 million a year in local television programmes on mainstream and regional free-to-air channels, so that you can see more, and a wider variety of, local content.
Through our funding of Public radio, Access radio, Pacific radio and special programmes for Commercial radio we ensure 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.
Both light entertainment and examination of a significant historic event will be covered in new programmes funded by NZ On Air under its Māori programming strategy, Te Rautaki Māori.
