NZ: FreeviewPlus now on Satellite

April 21, 2016

Freeview New Zealand has rolled out FreeviewPlus on its satellite platform.

FreeviewPlus combines all available On Demand content from TVNZ Ondemand, 3NOW & Māori Television On Demand, with live free-to-air broadcasts – creating a library of top New Zealand and international content all in one place, available to enjoy any time, subscription-free.

Freeview General Manager, Sam Irvine, commented: “The TV is the most preferred screen in the home. And On Demand viewing on your TV should be simple. Our goal with FreeviewPlus is to make On Demand viewing easy and more enjoyable by bringing great On Demand content to your TV, helping Kiwis eliminate those painful streaming setups that are all-too-familiar – squinting at a tiny phone, struggling with a myriad of menus, network configurations or cords to get streaming videos onto the TV. We achieved that for our Freeview|HD viewers in July last year. Extending it onto satellite means we can now do the same for all New Zealanders – so everyone can enjoy On Demand on their TV with FreeviewPlus, with just the click of a button.”
