TVNZ apologise for signal outage

Home Broadcasting and Media TVNZ apologise for signal outage

TV ONE and TV2 channels experienced an 11 minute outage this evening.

Analogue TV viewers across the country lost their TVNZ channels from 9.11 to 9.22pm. The issue did not affect digital TV viewers.

It is believed a power supply problem in an aspect ratio converter at TVNZ’s Auckland Television Centre resulted in the outage. Both the main and back up power source to a particular unit failed, before transmission was restored with an alternate power source.

TVNZ apologises to everyone who had their evening viewing disrupted. We are currently investigating how the outage occurred.
