TVNZ to Make Submission to Commerce Commission
TVNZ will make a submission to the Commerce Commission on Sky Network Television's offer to buy Prime New Zealand from its Australian parent, Prime Television.
The offer to buy Prime NZ is subject to Commerce Commission approval.
Chief Operating Officer Rodney Parker said the submission would consider the implications for TVNZ, of Sky entering the free-to-air broadcast arena.
"We are carefully considering the implications of this move and reviewing the likely impacts on New Zealand's television landscape."
