 Public broadcasting in New Zealand - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

In 1989, a new government agency, called the Broadcasting Commission or New Zealand on Air (NZOA), took over responsibility for the television licence fee [now called the broadcasting fee] which was distributed on a contestable basis to programme makers, This was to ensure a minimum level of local content in the increasingly commercialised television sector.
In real terms, this meant that public funding of broadcasting in New Zealand was greatly reduced by the time the broadcasting fee was finally abolished in 1999 and replaced with direct funding from the Governement.
