The show must go online: Genesis and Kiwibank keep viewers' eyes on the prize with sponsorship extensions
TV shows are increasingly trying to keep the audience's attention after broadcast—and, with much of the population seemingly unable to keep their eyes off their mobile devices for more than ten seconds, often during it. Sponsors associated with shows also want their share of the eyeballs.

Genesis Energy, the largest electricity and gas retailer in the country, announced yesterday that it would not be knocking on doors and offering switching sweeteners after a survey showed, lo and behold, that New Zealanders found the practice intrusive and annoying.

.99's latest TV spot for Tower invokes the nautical metaphor of a lighthouse keeper to illustrate that the insurance giant is always looking out for its clients. Throughout the 45-second TVC, the bearded protagonist draws a parallel between lighthouse keepers and Tower, in the sense that both are "always on watch" and have wisdom on "how to avoid danger and how to put things right."
