FreeviewPlus shows streaming doesn't have to be a chore

Tiny mobile screens. Precarious cables traversing a room. Shared headphones and a laptop in bed. All familiar scenes to anyone who has delved into online streaming. And while any of these examples are acceptable in certain circumstances, a new campaign from Freeview NZ shows there are some advantages to the bigger television screen, particularly when watching a show with someone else.

Freeview broadens its service, offers access to on-demand

Far gone are the days where we got to the best point in our television show only to hear “cccsssshhhh” and see our screens produce an unnerving display of black and white fuzz as we frantically wrestled our bunny ear aerials into the most awkward and weird positions to get the picture back (only to have missed the best part). 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.

I stream, you stream, we all stream for various streaming services

Spark Ventures' Lightbox subscription video on demand service officially launched last night, and, not surprisingly, its arrival seems to have been the catalyst for a fair bit of activity in the streaming space, with TVNZ now offering online box sets of Orange is the New Black, Freeview's Sam Irvine talking up an integrated broadcast and broadband offering, Quickflix claiming that more competition is a good thing and Sky, which recently announced another big profit increase, getting set to launch its own streaming service for non-Sky customers. So who's got the best offer?

Stream wars: Freeview's Sam Irvine on the shift from broadcast to broadband

There's been plenty of discussion about the rise of subscription video ondemand services recently, with Spark's Lightbox getting set to launch, Sky announcing it is planning a new Netflix-type service and Slingshot offering a controversial workaround allowing Kiwis to access overseas providers. But sitting relatively quietly in the background is Freeview, which is now being used in 67 percent of New Zealand homes and is hoping to launch an ondemand service later in the year that will cater to the increasing number of New Zealanders with connected TVs. General manager Sam Irvine says it will offer "the seamless integration of linear broadcast TV and TV over the internet", so what does it mean for the gogglebox scene?

Inside: True

True opened its doors in 2011 after a few senior protagonists from .99 felt the need to go it alone and break away from the nurturing bosom of The Clemenger Group. Like any new business, the first few years were tough going and it focused on growth rather than profit, but it's gaining momentum, it's working with big brands like Air New Zealand and Vodafone, it's moving into areas outside traditional advertising and it currently employs 25 staff. Managing director Matt Dickinson spills the beans on its philosophy.

Freeview embraces the many faces of Pio for latest push

In June last year, Pio Terei hit the screens as Freeview's new mascot and, with the help of its agency True, he attempted to convince those Kiwi TV viewers clinging to their analogue signals to buy a box and get their content for free. And the man of many acting talents has channelled Eddie Murphy in a new ad shot by Greg Page of Flying Fish to showcase the kind of shows that are available on the platform.
