Niue Gets Media Content Boost From New Zealand Broadcasters

Proposed 12 NZ channels providng 8 hours of daily programming

WELLINGTON, New Zealand (Radio New Zealand International, June 10, 2016) – Niue has this week marked the introduction of a new television initiative which includes a proposed 12 channels from New Zealand.

The Pacific Cooperation Broadcasting Ltd's Tony O'Brien says the New Zealand Government wanted to showcase New Zealand culture and support Pacific nations and chose to use television and radio as a way to do it.

He said Niue now had 8 hours a day of TVNZ content compared with 11 hours a week previously.

The full programming, involving all 12 TV channels, is still some months away.

The broadcasting initiative, announced at last year's Pacific Islands Forum, is being progressively rolled out around the Pacific, with ceremonies already held in Papua New Guinea.
