Meanwhile, it’s business as usual back home at Ooh! Media in New Zealand, as the company completes a major promotion with TVNZ to live stream Commonwealth Games coverage across oOh!’s interactive Excite panels located in 14 New Zealand shopping centres.

“With TVNZ holding broadcast rights, the network wanted to provide the most extensive live and free-to-air coverage of a major sporting event in New Zealand history,” says oOh! NZ GM Adam McGregor.

“Its partnership with oOh! to use its Excite panels to broadcast coverage in NZ shopping centres is part of that.”

“This has been an excellent use of oOh!’s Excite full motion and interactive digital network, and has allowed around one million Kiwis the chance to view the live stream.

“The team at oOh! worked closely with TVNZ to ensure a seamless live broadcast feed to 15 Excite panels. The clear benefit offered by Excite was the in-built ability to include sound in the broadcast.
