The event of the year in the South Pacific will be this week's coronation of the King of Tonga, and TVNZ has arranged coverage befitting a Royal occasion.

Pacific Correspondent for ONE News, Barbara Dreaver, will report the numerous activities as a Kingdom celebrates the crowning of the new King, George Tupou V.

The Coronation Ceremony will be seen live on TVNZ 7 from just after 9am on Friday morning, August 1.

This will also be streamed live here on tvnz.co.nz and made available internationally.

TV ONE will have delayed coverage of the Coronation Ceremony following Friday's ONE News at Midday, and TVNZ 7 will re-screen the ceremony at 10.10pm.

ONE News on Friday night will feature coverage of the Coronation Ceremony and other events with Barbara Dreaver reporting live from Nuku'alofa. 

TVNZ's Tagata Pasifika will also be presenting two special programmes reporting the momentous events from Coronation week in its normal scheduled time slot on August 7 and 14.

The Pacific Islands will also share live coverage of the Coronation Ceremony, relayed by satellite to viewers throughout the region by TVNZ's Pacific Service.
