Chinese TV channel joins Freeview|HD
New Zealand viewers are set to benefit from the arrival of ChineseTV8 on Freeview|HD channel 28. The channel will launch in early October.

ChineseTV8’s programme line-up includes news and current affairs from mainland China, Hong Kong and Taiwan, popular drama series, variety shows of diverse formats, documentaries with an Asian emphasis and a wide range of Asian focused `infotainment'.

Steve Browning, General Manager, Freeview says Chinese TV8 is an exciting addition to the current array of content available on Freeview|HDTM, which was launched in April 2008 and is available to 75% of New Zealand homes.

‘There are approximately 150,000 ethnic Chinese in New Zealand and almost 75% of those citizens live in the greater Auckland area. Given that ChineseTV8 content will be broadcast predominantly in Mandarin we think there will be a strong demand for it and we’re delighted to have it on our platform,” he says.

“And in the next couple of weeks we’re releasing our latest batch of quarterly figures which will reaffirm the fact that Kiwis (throughout the country) want access to free digital TV. More than 120,000 households (over 280,000 people) had already gained access by the end of June this year,” he adds.

ChineseTV8 joins an ever increasing list of Freeview|HD channels which are available via digital terrestrial (via a UHF aerial) including TV ONE, TV2, TV3, C4, Maori Television, TVNZ6, TVNZ7, TVNZ Sports Extra, Parliament TV, tvCentral (Waikato/BOP only), Radio New Zealand National and Radio New Zealand Concert.
