Reaching out to the world for programming
When it’s not showing local or New Zealand content, Channel 39 brings you information and programmes from all around the world through its long established satellite partnerships.
The station currently has agreements with American, European, Asian, French and religious broadcasters. This broad geographic and culturally diverse resource brings many different and refreshing perspectives to the station’s viewers.
Programming from satellite services is scheduled using computer technology to provide the city with a 24-hour television service which carries a wide variety of news and other shows to suit a wide range of tastes.
From news broadcasts to jazz reviews, from the Hollywood scene to science, from sports to business coverage there truly is something for everyone here.
The nationalities behind the various partnerships ensure a broad range of views on international events are presented, something not readily available on national television. See countries through their own eyes on Channel 39.
