TV2 Gives Aussie Soap Home Away From Home

Home and Away’s April (Rhiannon Fish) and Dexter (Charles Cottier).

TVNZ tonight announced Aussie HD soap Home and Away will continue to screen 5.30 weeknights when TV2 takes it over from TV3 on August 19.

“We’re delighted to give Home and Away fans what they want with this fantastic weeknight time,” Jeff Latch, TVNZ’s Head of TV One and TV2, says.

With TVNZ Ondemand, the audience will be offered even greater viewing choice and flexibility in getting their Summer Bay fix, Latch says.

“Fear of missing out is strong among soap fans, which is why they’re such big users of TVNZ Ondemand. Shortland Street alone racks up more than 160,000 online streams each week.”

TV2 will also screen next day repeats of Home and Away at 11am as well as a two-and-a-half hour omnibus on Sunday afternoons.

Now, if only the network would upgrade Neighbours to HD; likewise, TV One with Coronation Street.
