Viewers could’ve been forgiven for believing that the food cooking format had reached its capacity on Kiwi TV with the addition The Great Food Race.

According to the latest Paymark figures, DIY action as a result of the buoyant Auckland housing market and the Christchurch rebuild have helped boost overall year on year retail spending in New Zealand by 4.3 percent. And there’s also been a boost in the number of TV shows aiming to tap into this domestic fever, with Mitre 10 Dream Home returning to TV2’s screens last week after a four year hiatus and Aussie powerhouse House Rules starting on TV3 last night. But it’s the homegrown effort that’s so far luring the most Kiwi DIY lovers.
Mitre 10 Dream Home returns to Kiwi screens on 2 July at 7.30pm after a few year hiatus. And, along with the naming rights sponsor, TVNZ has signed up a host of other commercial partners who will spruik their wares in the TV2 show, including ASB, EECA Energywise and plenty more.
