Looks like TVNZ is making the most out of the Pop Up Channel and sports rights,


They have announced exclusive rights for the 2018 Commonwealth Games, and they have just added live Bundesliga, WRC highlights and Magazines, so looks like they are slowly getting in content,
Not too sure why they haven't moved the 1x Live EPL Match from TV One to the Pop Up Channel but things look good.

In theory yes, but in practice it's almost certainly not possible with their current satellite and terrestrial channels and bandwidth constraints.


...unless they compromise [further!] on the video and/or audio quality of their other channels.
