Making Freeview Simple

Freeview is New Zealand free-to-air TV, fantastic local and international content for all New Zealanders to enjoy, free from fees.

To make it super simple for viewers to understand Freeview and the options available through products with Freeview features, we're making some changes to how we talk about Freeview and those products.  

Read on, or check out this one-page summary about the changes.

One brand for free entertainment!

Whenever we talk about the free-to-air TV experience, we just use Freeview.  

That's right, there will be no more sub-brands.

Freeview|HD, Freeview Satellite, MyFreeview|HD, MyFreeview Satellite, FreeviewPlus and MyFreeviewPlus will be removed.

Labels in-stores

For those looking to get Freeview or upgrade their TV, to make it easy to select the right TV, set top box or recorder, products on display in stores will each be labelled with:

  • The viewing options offered: LIVE TV, ON DEMAND and RECORD;
  • The type of signal it works with: UHF, Satellite, both UHF and Satellite.

From now until Friday 31 March, we will work with you to make changes to all Freeview mentions across all viewer and consumer touch-points, before we inform all viewers.

Want more info or have some feedback for us?

During March, we'd like to hold a couple of information sessions to talk about these changes with you.  

If you're interested to attend, or have some thoughts about these changes, please complete the form below.

You can also email media@freeviewnz.tv to ask us about specifics.



We'd love to hear your thoughts on these changes in the meantime, and would be very grateful if you could please fill in the next three questions.

Current sub-brands include Freeview|HD, Freeview Satellite, MyFreeview|HD, MyFreeview Satellite, FreeviewPlus and MyFreeviewPlus.
