TVNZ iPad APP No.1 FREE APP IN ITUNES FOLLOWING LAUNCH
TVNZ's iPad application has become the number one free app at the iTunes Store following Apple's approval of the app yesterday, New Zealand Time.
"Our first priority was to deliver dedicated news content so the
iPad app is all about news, sport, weather and what's on TV", said
TVNZ's Digital Media General Manager Tom Cotter.
"We have basically launched tvnz.co.nz in one free downloadable iPad app, so there's up to the minute information from ONE News, including instant access to breaking news and news video plus more coming in the next few weeks".
"Upgrades with extra functionality and features will continue to be rolled out to the iPad and iPhone apps plus more news video and live streaming of news features are in the pipeline."
"Our iPhone app has gone gangbusters since launch, we've had over 60,000 downloads since October which kept it as the number one free news app in the iTunes Store for nine months and we're hoping our iPad news app goes as well and it's had a great start."
TVNZ iPad news app (version 1) features:
" National, world, business, sport and entertainment news
" Comprehensive weather information, including regional forecasts
" Up-to-date TV schedule for all TVNZ channels and all other free-to-air channels
" News video
"Now that the TVNZ News iPad app's up we're prototyping a separate iPad application for TVNZ Ondemand.
"These ongoing developments are all about getting TVNZ content onto more platforms and devices."
