Are you sure about that? FIFA generally mandates that key games have to be FTA.


They will be on Prime according to the Sky advertising pack doc. https://skywebmedia.akamaized.net/advertising/docs/FIFAWorldCupQatar2022AdvertisingPack.pdf

I see that because I thought that nothing have been heard about 2022 FIFA World Cup on NZ TV. I have not been watching Prime that much lately

Broken records once again.

1.3 million New Zealanders tuned in to watch the RWC 2021 final against England. Just only 1,206,300 watched the game on Three.

So only about 100,000 watched it on Spark Sport? Seems low… how long can they justify that sort of viewership?

More stats; over 114,000 BVOD viewers streamed the game on ThreeNow. Spark Sport viewers averaged across the 100,000 mark.

The 18th season of The Block Australia will also premiere on Three at 7.30pm on Monday, November 28, and will air on Mondays to Thursdays across the summer. This season saw five new teams plus host Scott Cam renovating six houses at Gisborne South, a semi-rural locale 45km north west of Melbourne.

@OnAir @foxyrover @Leotv I was informed that Warner Bros. Discovery NZ had announced live captioning of its flagship news and current affairs programmes through Newshub (e.g. Newshub’s 6pm bulletin, The Project and Newshub Nation). The three programmes are being broadcast live-to-air on Three, with Newshub Nation being repeated with captions every Sunday morning and Tuesday night.

Until this time, TVNZ has been the only network in New Zealand with the ability to have its news and current affairs programmes (e.g. Breakfast, 1 NEWS at Midday, Te Karere, 1 NEWS at 6pm, Seven Sharp, 1 NEWS Tonight, Q+A and various 1 NEWS specials) live captioned with thanks to Able.

According to Sarah Bristow, senior director of news at Warner Bros. Discovery NZ, over 880,000 New Zealanders are deaf or hearing-impaired and cannot fully enjoy television programmes, particularly news and current affairs. Overall, 38% of the people watch programmes with captions every day - whether due to being deaf, speaking English as a second language, or watching due to preference.

As the service expands, Warner Bros. Discovery NZ will, in future, make live captioning in select other live-to-air programmes available.

What do you think of that?

I think it’s great that WBD is doing this. I think it’s crazy that this is the second channel with subtitles!

Ahh, so it says that below the logo! You have to get that close to the TV to figure out what the spots are, I couldn’t read the banner at all, I assumed it said Merry Christmas… and that’s in HD! (42-inch Bravia). Doesn’t translate very well to the end-user, I think, but at least the fairly lights don’t blink!

TVNZ’s ones look clunky too, I think, particularly when the bug animates… I’d have the Rata/Pohutukawa stay static and fade out, but that’s just me.
