Next week I will be in New Zealand at the invitation of the Ministry for Culture and Heritage, speaking at the New Broadcasting Futures: Out of the Box conference in Wellington. New Zealand has a Freeview satellite service, akin to the digital terrestrial television platform in the United Kingdom, with a terrestrial service due to launch next year, when Freesat will launch in Britain. Three months after launch, more than 21,000 satellite set-top boxes have been sold, which exceeds initial forecasts. Although a smaller market than the UK, there are many parallels and there is much to learn from the respective experiences. I look forward to seeing some of our New Zealand readers at the event.
