PTV Network New Zealand (Patrick Te Pou Enterprises Ltd)

I describe PTV Network New Zealand as “the country’s newest commercial broadcaster, providing a wide range of local and international programmes for audiences across the country and online”.

It’s like transforming both MediaWorks TV and Sky into a combined organisation. To me, the team at MediaWorks TV are specialists in news and current affairs and Sky are specialists in televised sport.

This is where I’ll post any information in regard to this topic, along with logos and graphic mocks if necessary.

DISCLAIMER: Patrick Te Pou Enterprises Ltd, trading as PTV Network New Zealand, is a fictional broadcaster and will not broadcast to New Zealand, as it is fictitious and imaginary. Thank you for understanding.

@foxyrover @Biscuit45 @Puggo19 @Zacgb Hi guys - I hope you’ve liked the customised PTV Network New Zealand logos; I used Microsoft PowerPoint and saved it as a PNG file.

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.

@nztv Thanks for your time; however, this is just a fictional broadcaster and the broadcast date hasn’t been announced (just yet)!

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. :slight_smile:

@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.

There will be more posts to come.

Here’s a poster promoting PTV Network’s news and current affairs programmes.

Featuring Wilhelmina Shrimpton (Newshub), Daniel Faitaua (TVNZ), Rawdon Christie (ex-TVNZ), Nadine Higgins (ex-TVNZ), Indira Stewart (RNZ), Ryan Bridge (Magic Talk), Melissa Chan-Green (Newshub), Mitch McCann (Newshub) and Corin Dann (RNZ).

More details soon.

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.

I really like the PTV News logo, it looks good and stands out well in the other variations of it you used :+1:
