New Zealand’s Internet TV content provider Ziln is now available on Sony Internet Televisions, bringing over 20 free channels into New Zealand living rooms.
“This is very exciting for us because it means Ziln grows from being an Internet TV Network accessible via home computers to being a true lean back, full screen lounge room experience.” says Paul Brennan of Ziln.
Ziln has been operating since September 2009 and currently carries 25 channels of on-demand New Zealand content including music, sport, documentaries, fishing and hunting, aviation, Archives New Zealand’s classic newsreels and more.
Ziln provides a platform that allows anyone to create their own Internet TV channel, so the company expects to see more channels launching over the coming months.
Sony Internet Television is an IPTV service available across a range of Sony televisions, Blu-ray players and home theatre systems. Ziln now joins other services on the Sony platform like Music Unlimited, Wiggle Time TV, Moshcam and the Billabong channel.
“Sony Internet Television offers New Zealanders a gateway to an enormous and dynamic world of content on-demand” says Matt Walton-Smith of Sony New Zealand. “And now with Ziln as a channel partner, the range of programming has grown significantly with Ziln even offering New Zealanders the chance to create their own IPTV channel”.
