TVNZ VOD pacts for ABC shows

Disney-owned channel pacts with Ondemand

The Asia Pacific arm of Disney-ABC Intl. Television has inked a deal with Kiwi pubcaster TVNZ to provide its skeins on its fledgling online delivery service TVNZ Ondemand.

In a first for New Zealand, the web-based delivery platform will provide Disney skeins free for 28 days after they air on TVNZ; service launches with the first season of “Grey’s Anatomy” spin-off “Private Practice,” and new seasons of such hits as “Lost,” “Desperate Housewives” and “Grey’s” will follow later this year.

“We’re delighted to be the first U.S. studio working with TVNZ, a pioneer in the digital media space in New Zealand, to bring our hit U.S. series in ways that are innovative and relevant to viewers here,” Rob Gilby, topper of Disney-ABC Intl. Television (Asia Pacific) said in a statement.

The TVNZ service has been running for more than a year with an average of 30,000 hours of TV watched per month.
