Coverage of the Winter Paralympics will be greater than ever before in New Zealand under a deal announced today.

A total of 44 hours of free coverage and highlights packages will be produced by independent production company Attitude Pictures.

Attitude, which will stream coverage on, will receive up to $261,000 from NZ On-Air.

TVNZ will be the free-to-air broadcast partner providing news, highlight packages and OnDemand content for the March 7-16 Games.

Attitude is also working with ACC as an official partner.

The International Paralympic Committee said the agreement "means more Paralympic coverage in New Zealand than ever before".

New Zealand will have three Paralympians at the games - Adam Hall, Carl Murphy and Corey Peters.

TVNZ Head of Television Jeff Latch said the network is proud to again be the television and online partner for highlights of the Paralympics.
