Just received:


TVNZ’s new digital-first offering ONE News Now (ONN) is live from today.

ONE News Now is a purpose-built platform for multiple devices (PC, tablet, smartphone), delivering anywhere, anytime news with a focus on video content - and all about the now.

ONN is a direct response to how people are consuming media, utilising TVNZ’s considerable resources and credibility to deliver up-to-the-minute news as it breaks, wherever and whenever Kiwis want it.

It also builds on the success of TVNZ’s high-performing news and current affairs programmes*.

TVNZ’s Head of News and Current Affairs, John Gillespie says, “ONE News Now will transform how we deliver news in the lead up to 6pm. We’re clear leaders on air, and want to see this translate across into digital.

“Most New Zealanders are consuming news on the go and ‘stealing moments’ in-between their daily tasks to check in. We believe the vibrancy and veracity of video is something our viewers like, and it will be our key point of difference with ONE News Now,” he adds.

ONN features unfiltered breaking news and curated features through three channels: latest, featured, and popular. The evolving news feed and optional push-notifications will allow users to follow stories throughout the day.

To cater for the changes, ONE News Now has transformed the way news is gathered and published at TVNZ.

“We've really invested in our journalists and our technology to make ONE News Now a reality. All our reporters have undergone training on how to best deliver mobile-first news with an emphasis on video content,” Gillespie says.

ONE News at 6 will continue to deliver the news that matters most to New Zealanders.

“ONE News Now will certainly feed into ONE News at 6pm, I think to the benefit of the bulletin,” Gillespie adds.

ONE News Now is available as a desktop site, mobile site, iPhone app, iPad app and Android smartphone app.

To find ONE News Now, head to onenewsnow.co.nz.

ONN? There's already a "news" site using those letters isn't there?

Android App seems okay. Takes a lot longer to load than the old m. site used to on the same device though ( Note 8).

90% trivia, 10% news - just like TV1 News.

Not impressed.

Ironically the weather page of their new responsive website, isn't responsive, so it is cut off on the right side.

Massive lost opportunity.

I'm looking for two things from a broadcaster - live streaming of all news bulletins, and ability to view on Chromecast or similar. 

What does this ONN 'update' actually achieve?  Still just a website in my opinion.

Looks really weird on Chrome for Android. Firefox works fine.

I suspect they didn't test it in too many mobile browsers, as my android has the same  type of problem.

Does it make me a hipster that I hated this site before it officially launched?
