History

On 1 June 1960, the New Zealand Broadcasting Service, AKTV2, started broadcasting in Auckland from the NZBC building at 74 Shortland Street. NZBS, which became the New Zealand Broadcasting Corporation in 1962, it initially broadcast for two hours a day, two days a week. Christchurch's CHTV3 followed in June 1961, Wellington's WNTV1 a month later, and Dunedin's DNTV2 on 31 July 1962.

Television advertising began in April 1961 and were initially allowed only on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays. By 1965, television was broadcasting seven nights a week.

On 1 April 1975, the NZBC was split into 3 separate state owned corporations: Television One, Television Two and Radio New Zealand.

In 1976 TV2 was renamed South Pacific Television.

In 1980 the two television channels merged to form Television New Zealand, with the purpose of finally providing a dividend to the Government. South Pacific Television reverted to its original name of TV2.

In 1988 the Labour-led government dissolved BCNZ, and deregulated the broadcasting market. And moved away from complementary programming and repositioned TV2 as an entertainment channel, leaving more serious programming to TV One.

On November 29, 1991, TV2 introduced 24-hour television overnight on Fridays and Saturdays, eventually becoming 24/7 on 19 October 1994.

On September 22, 2007, the channels switched from letterbox to anamorphic widescreen.

In August 2008, TV One, along with TV2, began 720p terrestrial broadcasts. Which became available on Sky pay TV satellite starting on June 2009. Then switched to 1080i from August 2010.
