TVNZ to screen Super Bowl 50 LIVE on TV ONE


As part of securing the free-to-air rights for the NFL, TVNZ will screen Super Bowl 50 live on TV ONE on Monday 8th February 2016 at 12:00.

In another successful sports play TVNZ has been screening four NFL games live a week and a highlights programme on Freeview pop-up channel 13. This line-up will be further strengthened on Friday 27th November, Thanksgiving Day in the United States, when TVNZ will simulcast 3 NFL games to kiwi viewers on Freeview pop-up channel 13 and TVNZ On Demand.  The schedule for the 27th November features the Philadelphia Eagles at the Detroit Lions at 06:30, followed by the Carolina Panthers taking on the Dallas Cowboys at 10:30, and the Chicago Bears facing the Green Bay Packers at 14:30.  

The deal also covers the playoffs and Super Bowl 50 which will screen on Freeview and online.  

Super Bowl 50 celebrates a significant milestone as the 50th edition of the Super Bowl and will determine the league champion for the 2015 NFL season. The Golden Anniversary game is set to take place at the home of the San Francisco 49ers in the State of California.

TVNZ Director of Content Jeff Latch says this is great news for New Zealand fans of American Football.

“There’s so much interest in the NFL at the moment. 

“It’s great for TVNZ to be able to bring this coverage to Kiwis in a free-to-air capacity, and it feels especially good to be able to put the Super Bowl on TV ONE!”

TVNZ is currently also screening Live Formula E, and the AFL International Series on its Freeview pop-up channel 13, in addition to securing the rights to Wimbledon and AFL earlier this year and making much of this sports content available via TVNZ OnDemand.
