TVNZ has signed an exclusive partnership deal with Getty Images to license and distribute its news/doco/feature video clips around the world, bringing the broadcaster’s collection to a larger international market.

“Getty Images’ extensive experience as the guardian of its own internationally renowned and historically significant Hulton Archive, as well as distributor to nearly 400 other well-known collections including BBC Worldwide and Japan’s NHK, make the company an ideal partner for TVNZ,” says Getty Images NZ sales director Arran Birchenough.

TVNZ customers will be able to access the TVNZ Collection through Getty Images’ website. “They can expect the same quality service and price, but with a key difference being a stronger and wider sales offering, enabling customers to access content online from anywhere in the world 24 hours a day,” Birchenough said.


“We look forward to giving customers around the world unprecedented access to this incredible content.”


TVNZ content director Cate Slater said said: “We’re delighted to have Getty Images represent our collection, which captures New Zealand’s life and times – our people, places and historic moments.

“This partnership enables us to draw on Getty Images’ extensive expertise in footage licensing and global distribution networks. As the market leaders in their field, we know they’re really well set up to provide great service to TVNZ’s existing clients and build our international footage sales.”

Arran Birchenough said: “Getty Images is proud to represent TVNZ’s collection and the rich heritage it encompasses. We are a global industry leader in content licensing and have a proven track record of leadership, growth and innovation in this business.

“Getty Images is committed to growing and expanding TVNZ’s video licensing business and we look forward to giving customers around the world unprecedented access to this incredible content.”
