Freeview launches in New Zealand

New Zealand’s very own Freeview service launched full-scale testing yesterday, ahead of a full launch on April 14. There’s already a satellite version of “Freeview” available, offering around a dozen channels to the entire country. The launch of the DTT service will reach 75% of the population, and offer channels in High Definition (so pretty much the opposite of Freeview and Freesat here in the UK!).
