TVNZ takes its video collection to the world

Posted Thursday 12 Apr 2018


TVNZ has signed an exclusive partnership deal with Getty Images to license and distribute its video clips around the world. The TVNZ Collection consists of news, documentary and feature content from New Zealand - think Kiwis on Everest, royal tours, Waitangi Day events and famous sporting moments. TVNZ general manager of content creation Jude Callen says the changes will "make the process simpler for TVNZ customers who license TVNZ footage, while prices will remain the same." However, TVNZ will still directly manage requests from the public and from its production partners for commissioned content. There's some wonderful historical footgae, check it out at the link below:
