Shows go di­rectly to On­De­mand

The TV Guide - - DIGITAL WATCH -

Ac­claimed Bri­tish pe­riod drama

The Last Post (right) has gone straight to TVNZ’s On­De­mand ser­vice – and it is likely other top-rat­ing overseas shows will take the same route. At the mo­ment there are no plans to screen the Jes­sica Raine se­ries on free-to-air TV, with more shows be­ing bought ex­clu­sively for the On­De­mand plat­form.

A TVNZ spokesper­son says, “We’re con­stantly step­ping up our TVNZ On­De­mand of­fer­ing. We’re mak­ing full se­ries avail­able wher­ever pos­si­ble and in­creas­ing the length of time we keep shows on­line so that viewers can watch on their terms. Nearly all our lo­cal se­ries are avail­able in full, and we’re ac­quir­ing more and more in­ter­na­tional ti­tles in this way. The Last Post and The

Viet­nam War are two re­cent ex­clu­sive se­ries, but look out for up­com­ing ex­clu­sives Ac­cept­able Risk and Stage

School as well as full back sea­sons

of Doc­tor Fos­ter, Mom, The Mid­dle, Friends and The Big Bang The­ory. “We are also con­tin­u­ing to fast-track lots of in­ter­na­tional se­ries so New Zealand fans can watch them at the same time as fans in other parts of the world (e.g. Young Shel­don, Grey’s Anatomy, Crim­i­nal Minds).”
