TVNZ is launching New Zealand’s first free daily podcast of its morning programme, ASB BUSINESS. The new service is brought to the public with the support of ASB, a local banking institution.
The programme will be available to view on video-capable iPods with audio available for iPods and other MP3 players.
The podcasts are another move by TVNZ to offer viewers programming content on multiple platforms so New Zealanders are able to access local shows from a variety of sources.
Viewers will be able to access excerpts of ASB BUSINESS – including interviews with Michael Wilson, market reports and feature stories from within the programme.
The video can be viewed and downloaded from TVNZ's webiste using the keyword: ASB BUSINESS. Viewers can automatically download all available content or just specific segments to their iPod or MP3 player from approximately 8.30am onwards, each weekday morning.
The podcasts are available in MP4 video format which is compatible with the video-capable iPods and the audio files are available in MP3 format which is compatible with all portable audio MP3 players. The audio and video files can be downloaded using Apple iTunes software.
