TV2 SETS DATE FOR HOME AND AWAY
10 July 2013
TVNZ is thrilled to announce that Aussie soap Home and Away will launch weeknights from Monday August 19 at 5:30pm on TV2.
Jeff Latch, TVNZ’s Head of TV ONE and TV2, says: “We’re delighted to give Home and Away fans what they want with this fantastic weeknight timeslot. They won’t miss an episode as the first-rate storylines continue on TV2 from August 19."
With TVNZ Ondemand, the audience will also be offered even greater viewing choice and flexibility in getting their Summer Bay fix, Latch says. “Fear of missing out is strong among soap fans, which is why they’re such big users of TVNZ Ondemand. Shortland Street alone racks up more than 160,000 online streams each week.”
TV2 will also screen next day repeats of Home and Away at 11:00am as well as a two and a half hour omnibus on Sunday afternoons.
Home and Away is a Seven Network Production and distributed in New Zealand by Endemol.
