  1. What about Shortland Street? The TVNZ website schedule lists it as airing in HD this week, and so does the guide on Freeview.

  2. TVNZ says the HD description was a “technical issue” with its IT set-up. Earlier in the week a spokesperson said it had been fixed — but apparently not. Shortland Street is being shot in HD but won’t be screening in HD this week. TVNZ wants to make a big splash about the switchover “once it is all confirmed”. South Pacific Pictures started the HD transition over Christmas, so assuming a three-month lag between production and transmission, Shortland Street should be on-air in HD by early next month. Keep checking this site for the definitive date.
