TVNZ to be reviewed

Politik reports:

Minister is to the “future direction” of Television New Zealand. …

She said the initiative would include recommendations for “greater collaboration between, and efficiencies from, publicly funded organisations, including the future direction of TVNZ.”

Options could logically range from selling it through to de-commercialising it so that it became a public broadcaster like New Zealand but Curran was unwilling to speculate on what might be on the table.

Selling TVNZ should be a no-brainer. It is not a public broadcaster and never will be. In a decade or so it might be worthless. The Government should sell TVNZ now and put the proceeds towards public broadcasting.
