11/02/10

Freeview NZ is now in nearly 22% of households across New Zealand, as a result of the platform achieving its highest performing quarter since it launched in 2007.

The number of households able to receive Freeview NZ at the end of 2009 reached 346,116. This figure combines the 189,708 Freeview satellite homes (an increase of 11,791 from the last quarter) and 156,408 Freeview HD homes (an increase of 42,354 from the last quarter).

“These impressive quarterly figures, our best ever, indicate that New Zealanders are becoming increasingly aware of the benefits of moving their viewing from analogue TV to Freeview-enabled digital TV,” says Sam Irvine, Freeview General Manager.

“We are also very pleased to announce the addition of Shine TV to Freeview. Shine TV will launch on April 1st on the Freeview satellite┬« platform. As always, we are committed to offering the best digital, free-to-air, viewing experience possible and this adds to our already exciting and diverse selection of channels,” adds Sam Irvine.
