Clearly an attempt by TVNZ to dissuade folks from downloading content when if they wait at most for a day, they can see it broadcast locally or on demand.
Well that's well and good but TVNZ has a poor record of broadcasting in HD so I wonder just how many of those shows will be in HD?
And if you watch via on demand you have to watch on a PC, an IOS device or selected Samsung devices and lose the big screen experience and 5.1 audio.
Plus of course ( and I will have to admit I am in a minority here) I can't stand the speedup of audio that occurs because of the 1080i/60 versus 1080i/50 broadcast standards. That should have gone away with HD and it has on BluRay but still persists on broadcast TV.
I think I will still source my shows another way although looking at this list
Person of Interest is probably the only show I would watch.
