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.
NZ On Air is pleased to expand the range of diverse factual programmes available on television including new programmes on music superstars, paralympic heroes and the characters you find in the halls of Parliament.
NZ On Air has been inundated with creative, innovative stories for audiences on multiple screens and devices. With the latest funding decisions, viewers are being given even greater choice of local content, and more options for how to enjoy it.
