  1. @Russell TVNZ is a fully fledged state owned commercial broadcaster with 95% of its funding derived from advertising and 5% from govt sources. TVNZ is just like the Australian commercial networks and has managed to become viewer focused in how to deliver content that viewers want access to through its very popular ondemand service, something the Aussie networks need to learn.

  2. @James S is right, In New Zealand TVNZ has finally listened to its viewers and is utilising its ondemand service (TVNZ Ondemand) to air the latest eps of Scandal, Greys, Revenge and whole raft of other content and uploaded within hours of their US airings. The Aussie networks need to take note and cater for both their reality & drama viewers.

  3. @James S and tvf: TVNZ does not solely rely on advertising like 7 and the Australian networks to fund itself. They get government funding.

    7, 9 and Ten however rely only on ad revenue -and online plays do not generate the same amount of advertising dollars as on air plays per person

    Even US networks premiere content on air first and then put it online for the very same reason.

    I wasn’t aware they offered that in nz. I had a quick look at the site and they had the latest ep of greys on there. The commercial networks are so out of touch and out of date here.

  5. Hey Australia, If you want PLUS7 to air Fresh US Sitcoms and Dramas that Seven has the Rights Now just hours after their Original Airing, Contact Channel Seven in your State Capital City.

  6. I have the Plus7 on my Iphone and Kogan Anriod Dongle ( jeely bean ) attached to my Kogan tv via HDMI, It all work fine except for “Resurection TV series ” ,I can go online on my Kogan tv to the Plus7 online service to watch it .both work fine.
