PTV Network New Zealand (Patrick Te Pou Enterprises Ltd)

Thanks, @greenpea. From my perspective the weekend news would screen usually twice a night on the main channel (PTV), i.e. an early bulletin for half an hour at 6pm and a late bulletin for 15 minutes at around 10.30pm (subject to scheduling).

If live coverage of a typical sporting event goes past 6pm then the early bulletin screening at that time would screen on PTV’s sister channel, GEM (a ‘General Entertainment and Movie’ channel for 40-64 year olds), with a second full-length (half hour) bulletin on the main channel in an, earlier, mid-evening timeslot (in place of the late bulletin for 15 minutes). Once the Rugby World Cup warm-up game (Black Ferns v Japan Women) finishes that day - Saturday 24 September - there would be a pre-recorded newsbreak before returning to Eden Park for the second Rugby Championship/Bledisloe Cup game (All Blacks v Wallabies).

If a typical All Black test kicks off on home turf at 7.05pm then the weekend news would screen on the main channel at the slightly earlier time of 5.30pm and live rugby would begin with a pre-game preview/build-up at 6pm. The late bulletin would screen at around 10.30pm (subject to scheduling), as usual.

There are no plans to make the half hour bulletins online-only but shorter, five-minute bulletins via live streaming (i.e. on the hour from 7am-5pm and at 6.30pm, 7.30pm, 8.30pm, 9.30pm and 10.30pm on a daily basis) would be available as an online-only bulletin service, known as PTV Newsbrief (formerly PTV Newsroom).

CHANGES TO PTV+

Last time, in addition to the 12 PTV Network channels via free-to-air television, I created a paid subscription service called PTV+ Premium which allows viewers to not only skip the ads and watch their favourite on-demand content without commercial interruption but to live stream premium channels.

But due to unforeseen circumstances, I have had to make the decision to undergo some changes to PTV Network New Zealand’s digital platform, PTV+, although the network is fictional and the press release is only a mock.

THE ALL NEW PTV+

PTV+ is to become New Zealand’s first fully integrated advertising and subscription (AVOD/SVOD) platform with a fresh new look and feel.

PTV+ will be an entirely new, advertiser-funded, free-to-watch streaming service and packed with 30,000 hours of content. In a step change to its traditional approach the majority of popular programmes, including ‘express plays’ from the US and UK, will be streamed first on the new look PTV+ and then broadcast on PTV Network’s linear channels up to six months later.

There will be something for everyone on the new look PTV+, with more fresh new content dropping every week of the year than any other video on demand platform in New Zealand.

Key features of the new look PTV+ include:

  • Live streaming of the 12 PTV Network channels
  • Live streaming of up to 150 FAST (free ad-supported streaming television) channels
  • Exclusive new series and new episodes launching online every week (including ‘express plays’ from the US and UK)
  • Thousands of box sets
  • An ever-changing library of blockbuster and classic movies
  • Sports shows, highlights and full replays now available to watch, with ads, for free

Subscribers will gain access to PTV+ Premium with a fresh new look - featuring the same on-demand content as PTV+, without the adverts, and Neon, which showcases the biggest streaming collection of television series, movies and blockbuster movie rentals and includes popular HBO shows like Game of Thrones and its prequel series, House of the Dragon. Neon, a 100% NZ owned paid entertainment streaming service, will be integrated into PTV+ Premium.

PTV Sport+ is now a free, ad-supported sport streaming service and sports fans will now either stream highlights, replays and dedicated sports shows, with ads, for free or subscribe to a PTV+ Premium subscription of their choice (see below), skip the ads and enjoy on-demand sporting action without commercial breaks. With PTV+ Premium, fans will be able to stream major local and international sports events… live, as they happen.

The pricing for the all new PTV+ Premium will be listed as follows:

  • Standard subscription: $19.99 per month with the flexibility to cancel at any time (downloads not available). Your standard subscription renews automatically every month unless cancelled prior to renewal date.
  • Deluxe subscription: $39.99 per month with the flexibility to cancel at any time. You can download on-demand content from the PTV+ app to your mobile phone or tablet for offline viewing - perfect for your commute or longer trips. Your deluxe subscription renews automatically every month unless cancelled prior to renewal date.
  • Annual subscription: $399.99 for one full year of access to PTV+ Premium content for a single annual upfront payment - effectively $33.34 per month. You can download on-demand content from the PTV+ app to your mobile phone or tablet for offline viewing - perfect for your commute or longer trips. Your annual subscription renews automatically every 12 months unless cancelled prior to renewal date.

PTV Ringside will continue to be the pay-per-view home of boxing, UFC and WWE.

All PTV Ringside events and blockbuster movie rentals are available as standalone purchases separate from the standard, deluxe and annual subscriptions to the all new PTV+ Premium.

NEW SHOWS & EPISODES, STREAMED FIRST, FOR FREE

A wealth of dramas, comedies and entertainment will now be streamed first and for free on the all new PTV+ before arriving up to six months later on PTV Network’s linear channels. The same manner applies to brand new episodes of popular US and UK series.

BOX SETS & MOVIES

PTV Network has wide-ranging content agreements with most of the major US studios (e.g. CBS/Paramount, NBCUniversal, DreamWorks, Warner Bros. Discovery, Disney [20th Century Studios, Touchstone etc], Sony Pictures, MGM, and Lionsgate) and arrangements with a number of content distributors, including BBC Studios, ITV Studios, All3Media International, Banijay, Beyond, Endemol Shine, Fremantle and Roadshow.

The new look PTV+ intends to stream thousands of dramas, comedies and entertainment in box sets, so that viewers can binge watch their favourite series, from start to finish, for free.

Movies, from the latest blockbuster releases to the classics, will also be a big part of the service and PTV+ intends to stream 800 movie titles for free, with a constantly refreshed selection of titles and 200 movies on the service at any one time.

SPORT

Whether it’s an All Black test, an international netball game or the NRL Grand Final, PTV Network’s linear channels (e.g. PTV, Shake, Bold and Peach) will be home to the big events the sporting-mad country has to offer, with all these must-watch events streaming live through PTV+, as they are broadcast on those channels.

There will also be dedicated FAST channels (e.g. All Blacks, Super Rugby, Bunnings NPC, NRL, Silver Ferns, ANZ Premiership, A-League, Premier League etc) and partner channels (e.g. beIN SPORTS, ESPN, ESPN2, Olympic Channel, Red Bull TV and TAB Trackside) that play non-stop sports content around the clock, crammed full of shows, highlights and replays.

FREE AD-SUPPORTED TV CHANNELS (FAST CHANNELS)

As well as being able to live stream the 12 PTV Network channels through linear television, the new look PTV+ will feature a host of free ad-supported streaming television (FAST) channels.

These FAST channels will give a scheduled experience through a streaming service, with viewers able to choose where in the schedule they join.

With no more than 150 FAST channels in the pipeline, including ‘British Drama’, ‘NCIS’, ‘The Big Bang Theory’, ‘The Real Housewives’ and ‘True Crime’ as examples, viewers can have the ‘lean-back’ experience of watching a curated, scheduled channel, as part of the new-look PTV+ offering.

@Michael_Eccles @LiamP @Kathryn_Milin @Biscuit45 @McMuffinMan17 @TBoy @greenpea What do you think of the revamped PTV+ with the inclusion of FAST (free ad-supported streaming television) channels, rather than premium channels? It would be similar to 7plus from Australia and, then, ITVX from the UK.

Just letting you know that @paddy does nothing. You have to put his full username.

Just trying to show support to a fellow user @David but thanks for the helpful tip nevertheless

As always, @greenpea - thanks very much. When it comes to real-life events, I intend to create mock schedules in the future.

BATHURST 1000

In real life, the Bathurst 1000 will take place at the Mount Panorama Circuit in Bathurst, NSW, from 6-9 October 2022 with the big race on Sunday 9 October. In my book, Shake is the free-to-air home of the Bathurst 1000 and here are the mock schedules for that channel.
