Country TV Announces Increase In Viewers
As of January 19th 2015, Country TV will be watched by an estimated 130,000 people, equating over 40,000 household subscriptions. This hike in viewers will allow an ever-increasing, comprehensive programming schedule to include more local, relevant content, targeting rural-minded individuals around New Zealand.
Accessed through SKY channel 081, Country TV is New Zealand’s only dedicated rural channel, supplying the nation with agribusiness, farming, equestrian and rural lifestyle television. Increasing viewership means a higher volume of up-to-date information about local and international agriculture, farming, gardening, and more – all brought to the homes of rural-loving Kiwis.
The increase in viewers will give Country TV a better idea of which shows are attracting who, an understanding that will open doors for new programs and partnerships to further accommodate the demands of the market. Country TV aims to communicate directly with rural residents and/or those involved in rural industries to better inform and entertain the communities they support, and long term goals include being a part of every such household in New Zealand.
