Having been back in EnZed for just over a couple of months now I thought I'd give my impression of the TV scene here. This is the FTA guide for Sunday in prime time.

TVNZ1
Sunday 15 October
6.00 1 News at 6pm
7.00 Hyundai Country Calendar
7.30 Sunday
8.35 Victoria
9.35 Cold Feet (ep 2 in season 7)
10.35 Happy Valley (ep 2 in season 2)

TVNZ2
5.05 Movie - My Girl
7.00 Movie - The 5th Wave
9.00 Movie - Focus
11.00 Movie - Evil Dead
12.40 Gotham (ep 13 in season 3)

THREE
6.00 Newshub Live at 6pm
7.00 Married at First Sight NZ
8.30 Movie - Gone Girl
11.25 Movie - Lord of War

BRAVO
5.30 Tabatha's Salon Takeover
6.30 Hollywood Medium With Tyler Henry
7.30 I'm Having Their Baby
8.30 Dance Moms: Abby Tells All
10.20 Ladies of London
11.20 Four Weddings UK

These four channels also have a +1 channel, meaning shows are played an hour later on these so supposedly avoiding recording clashes or if you miss the start of a show.

TVNZ Duke
6.00 Hardliners (fishing show)
6.30 Travel Man
7.00 Brooklyn Nine Nine (ep 19 in season 4)
7.30 Futurama
8.00 American Dad
8.30 Family Guy
9.00 South Park
9.30 Marvel's Inhumans (new)
10.25 Ice Road Truckers
11.20 Bar Rescue

PRIME
5.30 Prime News: First at 5.30
6.00 Escape to the Country
7.00 Storage Wars: Miami
7.30 Planet Earth
8.30 Decades in Colour (NZ History show)
9.30 60 Minutes USA
10.30 Qi (UK)
11.05 Skint

There are two Maori channels (Maori Television and Te Reo) but the rest seem to be shopping and religious channels. There's a good online catch up service which I've been using - there are only a few shows I'm interested in watching. You can also watch live TV on your computer.

Now I've bought a house, I think I'll be getting unlimited broadband and watch on my laptop. Spark has a deal which gives a home phone, unlimited broadband and a year's free Netflix on a 2 year contract for $105/month. Both my kids have Netflix and I'm impressed with the shows on there - I much prefer to watch drama ;)

Live sport, apart from the Commonwealth Games and (I think) the Olympics, is locked in to pay tv (Sky). There is no anti-siphoning legislation here, although there is delayed motorsport and rugby, soccer and NFL on FTA. Will have to look up the cost of a Sky subscription (just for information - I have no plans to get it).

Will post Monday's listings tomorrow (just so you can see how bad it is) ;) :<|

I like how there's a late night news bulletin on two of the channels (if I was still up that is!)
