    Television New Zealand, Limited (Māori: Te Reo Tātaki o Aotearoa), more commonly referred to as TVNZ, is a state-owned television network that is broadcast throughout New Zealand and parts of the Pacific region. Although the network identifies as a national, part-public broadcaster, it is fully commercially funded, and was competition free until November 1989 when private channel TV3 was launched.

    "The site TVNZ is not only a news site for the New Zealand area it also provides varied entertainment. It uses a netflick type interface and you can pick the news, (which is located right at the top) or enjoy entertainment after your news fix. I usually watch the news before I watch a movie so its handy having it all in one place."

    "I was looking for a site that is not only easy to find the news on, but also quick and easy to use. This modern, unique news site really brings all of this to the table and more. I feel like it really gets the job done just right. I can't complain either way. It is something that I like and I hope stays afloat. (I can't imagine going back and using any other site after this."

    "after browsing this website for few minutes, I get to know that this is a very biased, minor website that discusses nothing but trivia that's happening in the world, so I wouldn't personally assume this is the best New Zealand news site"

    "This looks like a decent enough news site for NZ but you would have to look into it yourself. It should be decent at least."
