A list of the New Zealand TV channels. All popular TV channels in New Zealand have been included. In this day and age, virtually every country has its own set of television networks and popular programming. Some content and production is shared between similar counties that share cultures like Australia and New Zealand.
The TV programs originally evolved from radio, and up until the last few decades, virtually all television content was broadcast over the air. Today, cable and satellite providers directly broadcast much of what is watched. Programming can be created both in house, or by a studio or other production facility that is sometimes directly affiliated with the station. Television shows can also be imported (and exported) to other countries, often through syndication. While satellite and cable currently take all the glory, over-the-air broadcasting is not being left behind as many countries are making the switch from analogue to digital broadcasts.
