About TVNZ

Our Channels

Every day more than 2 million New Zealanders join TVNZ across our channels 1, 2 and DUKE, the country’s favourite local on demand destination TVNZ OnDemand, leading news site 1 NEWS NOW and new children's platform HEIHEI. We believe it’s when we share and celebrate the moments that matter to New Zealanders that we are most relevant to viewers. 



TVNZ 1 plays a fundamental role in contemporary New Zealand life. After more than 50 years of broadcast, 1 isn’t just the original, it's paving the way. 

With an industry leading New and Current Affairs portfolio, award winning documentaries and factual entertainment and local and international drama that leaves you on the edge of your seat - 1 is all about stories that stay with you.

1 is a leader in local content, with more than 50% of programming consisting of local shows and talent. This gives the channel a distinctly New Zealand voice within the media landscape.
