You are watching Māori Television channel from New Zealand. The channel's category is Other and the speaking language is Māori.

Māori Television is a New Zealand television station that broadcasts programmes that make a significant contribution to the revitalisation of the Māori language and culture. Funded by the New Zealand Government, the station commenced broadcasting on 28 March 2004 from its studios in Newmarket, Auckland. It has since moved to East Tamaki, Auckland.

Māori Television was launched on 28 March 2004 and attracted a cumulative audience of 300,000 in its first month on air (April 2004). The main channel attracts 1.5 million viewers each month; half of all Māori aged five or more, and one-third of all New Zealanders. Te Reo, the station's second channel, was launched on 28 March 2008. It stands out from the main channel in that it is both free of advertising, and broadcast completely in Māori (without subtitles). Te Reo features special tribal programming with a particular focus on new programming for the fluent members of its audience.
