TV New Zealand Ramps Up Online Content
New Zealand broadcaster TVNZ is ramping up its online offering with TVNZ OnDemand adding 200 new hours of exclusive content, launching on new devices and introducing new features as it responds to Kiwis’ changing viewing habits.
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.
New TVNZ OnDemand features being introduced will include Watchlists that will automatically update with new episodes of favourited shows, as well as Push notifications to mobile devices. New devices serviced by the TVNZ OnDemand include PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4. In December, it will also be available in the Windows Store for those who have Windows 10 on their PC or tablet.
