Freeview New Zealand have launched a high-definition service. Freeview|HD is New Zealand's first high-definition service and, according to the company's General Manager Steve Browning, has the potential to dramatically alter the way in which New Zealanders access and enjoy television and radio programmes.
"The Freeview satellite service made bad reception a thing of the past, delivering crystal clear standard definition pictures to over 80,000 homes since its launch in May 2007. The addition of the Freeview|HD service provides the option to access free-to-air digital television and radio via UHF aerial," said Browning.
The Freeview|HD service will be available in Auckland, Hamilton, Tauranga, Palmerston North, Napier, Hastings, Wellington, Christchurch, and Dunedin.
An official launch event for media and invited guests will take place in Wellington on Monday, 14th April.
New Zealand's Freeview service is a consortium of broadcasters comprised of Television New Zealand, TVWorks, Maori Television and Radio New Zealand and offers free-to-air satellite and DTT services.
