Freeview is a non-profit organisation providing free-to-air digital television and digital radio to New Zealand. FreeviewPlus is a HbbTV 1.5 digital TV platform designed to give New Zealanders easy access to on-demand video services.
Intensive collaboration between Massive and Freeview in New Zealand has resulted in a superior and cohesive user interface not previously available in the NZ market. It seamlessly combines live content from over 20 channels, with catch up and on demand content from TVNZ, Māori Television and MediaWorks.
The service enables search across live programmes from all channels as well as the on demand libraries, all in one place. Additionally, there is the option to playback the last seven days worth of programming directly from the EPG.
FreeviewPlus brings a high degree of sophistication to an integrated free-to-air and on-demand streaming solution that doesn’t require a set-top box, allowing direct competition with pay TV offerings.
Massive AXIS gives Freeview the advantage of activating a broader feature set for rapid evolution and continued market leadership.

The system was intuitive to use and we found ourselves watching much more free to air content than we usually would.
