Reported in the Herald:

"The Radio New Zealand board of governors has given the thumbs up to plans for televised versions of its content as the foundation for a new public service television channel. The proposed new channel would replace TVNZ7 when government funding runs out next July."




A time-poor geek is hardly a geek at all

Well, that would be boring. If they expect public funding then they'd be better to keep TVNZ7 going

Interesting idea. Having an outlet for publicly funded television would smooth the path for the selling of TVNZ and removal of the charter obligations.

I like it, assuming the successful stuff on TVNZ7 like backbenchers is migrated across.

Im okay with tvnz being flogged off, on the proviso that we have a publicly funded intelligent channel, and this sounds like it fits the bill

Could this possibly end up with public broadcasting in New Zealand going full-circle, and RNZ becoming a "new" NZBC, with TVNZ being sold-off, ala the old Radio New Zealand commercial stations (ZB, ZM etc) in the 1990s???
