What's small, hairy and airborne?

There's danger in being good at something: you create expectations, as evidenced perfectly by this Olympic comparison. Air New Zealand has created some pretty high expectations for its inflight safety videos after releasing a few stunners and most seemed to think they weren't met with the last animated effort. But it's trying again and, in line with Tourism New Zealand's new 100% Pure Middle Earth slogan, it's a tribute to The Hobbit movies.

The video will be on board from November, check out a sneak peak of some scenes from the film-shoot. Air New Zealand – Official Airline of Middle-earth.

Luckily this hasn’t been a problem for a while, and our options for viewing television are always getting better, and today Freeview announced the launch of its new digital TV platform, FreeviewPlus, which allows Kiwis with the right technology to access on-demand video on new smart televisions.
