TVNZ has launched its portable site, so users can now access prime TVNZ content on their PDA or mobile device, wherever and whenever they want to.
The portable site, accessible at http://tvnz.co.nz/portable, carries breaking news, as well as articles and video from ONE News and ONE Sport. It also features full TV listings for TV ONE, TV 2, and TVNZ's new digital channel, TVNZ 6.
Another feature of the portable site is weather information. Users can access weather reports, forecasts, and tidal information, as well as analysis, radar, and satellite images – a handy tool for summer boaties to navigate New Zealand's changeable climate.
TVNZ's GM of Content and Delivery for Emerging Business, Tom Cotter, says that the portable site is another step in TVNZ's strategy of inspiring New Zealanders on every screen.
"The portable site is a great tool – people can use it wherever they are. They can get breaking news, or check the latest sports results, while they're taking the dog for a walk."
"They can find out what's on TV that night while they're riding the bus home, or they can check the forecast for their BBQ in the weekend while they're at the supermarket. The portable site puts users in control."
TVNZ's portable site is essentially a smaller version of tvnz.co.nz, designed for small screens and low bandwidth. It is accessible on any small-screen device that can view a web page.
