TVNZ launches onenews.co.nz

TVNZ’s online news has undergone a makeover to align more closely with its on-air counterpart and now has its own dedicated site, onenews.co.nz.

The new site will be home to all of TVNZ’s news content, while the tvnz.co.nz homepage will continue to have a strong news presence in the short term to navigate users through to onenews.co.nz.

TVNZ Head of News and Current Affairs Ross Dagan says, “The revamp will make it easier for New Zealanders to access their news anywhere, anytime and to find what they want more quickly. It will also give our first-rate news video more prominence.”

onenews.co.nz launches at 11pm on Tuesday, June 12th, in time for exclusive streaming of Wimbledon from June 25th, and extensive 2012 London Olympics coverage in July and August.

The new site will have 24-hour Games coverage, including video highlights, live text updates, extended interviews from the ONE News team in London and commentary and analysis from experts. This content will be available across the new website, and also on the mobile site, news app on iPhone, and across social media platforms.

Nat Geo: Megastructures: London Olympic Stadium

TUESDAY 12 JUNE

Episode Premiere
MEGASTRUCTURES: LONDON OLYMPIC STADIUM NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC – Tuesday 12 June, 7.30pm

The eyes of the world are now focused on a sporting megastructure: London’s Olympic Stadium.

By day it will be the venue for all track and field events and, by night, a dazzling stage for London’s opening and closing ceremonies.

This isn’t just a place where world records will be set. It’s a milestone in sporting architecture.

But creating a stadium that’s lighter and tighter is a massive undertaking, fraught with challenges.

Will London have an Olympic arena to be proud of? Or will this go down in history as the stadium that failed to impress?

Paul Holmes surgery successful

Paul Holmes has successfully come through open-heart surgery.

The broadcaster spent four hours in theatre this afternoon to remove a blockage and carry out other remedial work on his heart.

There were no complications and all went to plan.

He will spend a number of days in hospital before continuing his recuperation at home.

Paul and Deborah Holmes wish to thank everyone for their concern and support.
