I created PTV Network New Zealand as a dream media venture. At the time of writing PTV Network encompasses a total of 13 free-to-air television channels (PTV, Shake, Shake Extra, GEM, Bold, Peach, Bubble, Rewind, Home, Taste, MAX, MAX 2 and the PTV News Channel) and a digital platform (PTV+).
If PTV Network becomes a reality, more New Zealanders will be putting themselves ‘in the mood’ for the best in news, sport, entertainment and a choice of channels.
DISCLAIMER: PTV Network New Zealand (Patrick Te Pou Broadcasting Ltd - formerly Patrick Te Pou Enterprises Ltd) is a fictional broadcaster and will not broadcast to New Zealand, as they are fictitious and imaginary. Thank you for understanding.
I will be posting any information regarding PTV Network New Zealand in due course. Please note that this is a fictional broadcaster and will not broadcast to New Zealand, as it is fictitious and imaginary. Once again, thank you for understanding.
I like the simplistic format and colour choices for the logos and how it is consistent across the different channels. The font choice also has the right amount of weight to it without it looking overwhelming. I see there is a part-BBC influence with the block style and also the “On Demand” logo.
Interesting choice of using the Super Mario Bros. series font for the Children’s PTV (it gets the playful message across), I’m curious to see other elements of PTV when it comes to the On-Air Presentation side of things. Curious to see if PTV has a News Service as well…
I also use Microsoft PowerPoint to create a majority of different creations since the program has become quite versatile and added features you would see on the likes of Photoshop and Illustrator.
@Biscuit45 News and current affairs programmes play an integral part of the PTV Network strategy, as does free-to-air sport.
I mean, from my vantage point, the team at MediaWorks TV - which owns and operates Newshub - are specialists in news and current affairs and Sky are specialists in sports content. This is in addition to both local and international entertainment.
The poster in which I have posted serves as a homage to the ones previously seen on New Zealand’s TV3 (now Three) and Prime. These include:
Today Show (aired on Prime from 2002-08 as Prime had a joint venture with Australia’s Nine Network)
A Current Affair (originally fronted by Genevieve Westcott and aired on 3 during 1989/90)
60 Minutes (originally fronted by Amanda Millar and aired on 3 during 1989/90)
Sunday (modelled on the CBS News Sunday Morning programme from the US … with no relation to the TVNZ programme of the same name; it aired on Prime from 2002-05)
Nightline (aired on 3 from 1990-2013)
Four Corners, to me, is like an hour-long, Foreign Correspondent type format with a world focus. It offers viewers deeper coverage of international issues with the pick of overseas current affairs programmes through ITV, Channel 4, ABC America and the Nine Network (A Current Affair Australia). The New Zealand version of Four Corners is not necessarily related to the Australian ABC programme of the same name.
