TVNZ expands its online offering
TVNZ New Zealand is ramping up with a major expansion of its online offering – TVNZ OnDemand is adding 200 new hours of exclusive content, launching on new devices and introducing new features as it responds to Kiwis’ changing viewing habits.
Russell T Davies’ sexy interlinking dramas Banana and Cucumber, the satirical comedy series W1A starring Downton Abbey’s Hugh Bonneville, and the British Comedy Award-winning sketch show Cardinal Burns are among a bundle of exclusive box sets coming to TVNZ OnDemand from 1 December.
Director of Content Jeff Latch says TVNZ will release a large collection of international comedy, drama and factual titles exclusively online – more than 40 series in all. TVNZ OnDemand has amassed 900,000 verified users since relaunching in February. A stronger focus on online premieres has cemented its status as an entertainment destination in its own right, says Latch.
