Second annual Freeview awards launch to find the best of free digital TV and radio
Posted on 31-Mar-2011 16:34 | Tags Filed under: News



After a successful first awards season in 2010, the second annual Freeview awards have now been launched to find and champion the best elements of Freeview.

The awards celebrate all aspects of Freeview, from the channels and programmes provided by Freeview broadcasters, to the first-rate work of retailers and installers and the top-quality Freeview-approved products around New Zealand.

The awards recognise Freeview’s growing popularity and acknowledge their broadcast, retail and technology partners and suppliers who collectively underpin the success of the enterprise.

Freeview General Manager Sam Irvine says, “After the success of last year’s awards and the boost that the wins gave to many broadcast partners and suppliers, we are looking forward to what emerges from this year's voting. We expect a high level of engagement, judging by the growth in sales of Freeview receivers. The past 12 months have seen record numbers of Freeview-approved products sold by retailers and a significant rise in popularity of shows on digital-only channels.

In February 2011, retailers experienced their biggest February of Freeview sales since the company’s inception in 2007, and as the September 2012 Digital Switch Over (DSO) deadline approaches, the rate of Kiwis making the change from analogue to digital television is expected to increase.

The Freeview awards voting button can be found at www.freeviewnz.tv and those who vote will go into the draw to win a MyFreeview|HD Digital Television Recorder. Entries close on Tuesday 5 April and the winners will be announced on Tuesday 12 April.

1. Best in-store retail experience
2. Best online retail experience
3. Best installer experience
4. Best Freeview-approved HD digital receiver
