What is digital
TV? Can I get it in New Zealand?
Digital TV, often refered to as DVB or Digital
Video Broadcast, is available in New Zealand in two ways -
via satellite (DVBs) and via digital terrestrial broadcasts
- you will be most familiar with DVBs from SKYs paytv service.
However many people do not realise that there are many other
channels that are available FREE!! How can that be? Well broadcasting
via satellite is very similar to broadcasting via a terrestrial
(land based) transmitter. In order to make money the broadcasters
just sell advertisement time. So you will find that New Zealand's
main free to air (FTA) channels are available via satellite
along with many other channels, both in English and other
What do I need to receive
it? For further details visit a Topfield reseller like
- digital terrestrial is still new to New Zealand. Currently
the service has only been trialed in Auckland, reaching to
some of the towns nearby. This service allows perfect digital
reception via a standard UHF aerial and a DVBt receiver like
the Topfield TF6000T.
The service will be launched fully in 2008.
