How does it work? 

TVNZ 1, TVNZ 2, and TVNZ DUKE all run advertising breaks within programming.

We have a range of options to suit all advertisers and their different business objectives. Our team can guide you on how TVNZ's channels can best help you achieve your goals.

Whether it be long-term brand building or a short term sales activation, we have you covered. 

We can accommodate a range of ad durations on TV, the most common length being 15 or 30-second durations (as per published T&c's). 

 

Ways to buy

There are multiple ways you can go about planning your campaign:

Spot Buy

(TVNZ 1, TVNZ 2, TVNZ DUKE)

This is the most common method of commercial placement on TV.

Buying at the spot level gives you the control of where and when your ad is played out.

  • Channel
  • Programming
  • Time-zone 
  • Region (TVNZ 1 only)
 

Guaranteed audience 

(TVNZ DUKE)

TVNZ DUKE is primarily sold as a guaranteed cost per tarp as per published pricing each quarter.

This means your target ratings are delivered over the course of the campaign period and managed & guaranteed by TVNZ through an optimisation process.

Spot buys are also available on TVNZ DUKE.

 

 

Your options don't stop there, we have even more ways to help you maximise your investment:

Regional Advertising

On TVNZ 1 you can target a specific region when scheduling your advertising campaigns.

This is efficient for advertisers who may only be operating regionally, allowing you to get the best bang for your buck.

Regions available:

  • Auckland
  • Waikato
  • Central
  • Southern
 

Break Positioning

You can buy premium positioning in a break, which means that your ad can feature either first or last in break, next to our premium programming when consumers are most engaged.
