Pacific TV Audiences Get Access To More NZ Content

Part of NZ government initiative

WELLINGTON, New Zealand (Radio New Zealand International, May 16, 2016) – New Zealand television sports, drama and news is starting to be relayed through public broadcasters in the Pacific as part of a New Zealand government initiative.

The broadcasters will be able to draw down content from a so-called warehouse of publicly funded New Zealand programmes.

New Zealand's Pacific economic ambassador, Shane Jones, launched the initiative last week in Solomon Islands and Papua New Guinea.

"It's an attempt on our part to improve the offerings, to provide both information and entertainment material and knowledge about New Zealand to further broaden and deepen our footprint among our Pacific neighbours."
