Digital Broadcasters | NZ Netball | Silver Ferns Stick to TVONE

Television New Zealand has been in touch with Digital Broadcasters Vendor News on TVNZ's agreement with "Netball New Zealand". The netball agreement (announced March 12, 2007) is basically a renewal for the next three years and gives the terrestrial television broadcasting rights to TVOne for all international netball tests played at home by the national women's iconic team, the Silver Ferns. Not only that, Netball New Zealand has agreed to TVONE broadcasting the netball games on its digital and interactive platforms, from 2008 through to 2010. We can imagine how pleased TVNZ's Sports GM Murray Needham is when says the country's premier female sport remains available for viewing across the country.. Mr ZNeedham reminds us that the Silver Ferns are icons of New Zealand's domestic sporting landscape; they are current world champions and Commonwealth Games gold medallists. 2007 is the year the Silver Ferns women will need to defend their world crown. Netball New Zealand, CEO Shelley McMeeken is equally pleased to the continuing relationship with TVONE. Digital Broadcasters Vendor News notes that neither organisation divulged the financial terms of the agreement. <http://www.tvnz.co.nz> <http://www.netballnz.co.nz
