TV ONE + TV2 Update
TV ONE and TV2 will continue to play on their temporary frequency configurations in the New Plymouth area for about another week.
TV ONE will continue to be broadcast on the TV2 frequency, as this is the most secure, while TV2 will be broadcast on the less secure TV ONE frequency.
TVNZ won’t change the channels back to their normal frequencies until it receives replacement parts from overseas for the damaged TV ONE transmitter on Mt Taranaki. That’s expected to be about a week away.
TVNZ is also working with the Department of Conservation to enable the equipment to be helicoptered to the site when it arrives in the country.
TVNZ thanks the people of the New Plymouth area for their patience.
