Coronation Street jumps ahead in primetime on TVNZ
TVNZ has announced major changes to beloved icon Coronation Street on TVNZ 1, giving you more ways to watch your favourite programme.
For years New Zealand has lagged behind the UK’s broadcast of Coro, with episodes airing 18 months after their original transmission.
From 11 June, TVNZ 1 is jumping Coronation Street ahead in primetime to match the UK! This will be called Coronation Street 2018.
Currently airing storylines will continue to be available every weekday on TVNZ 1. This will be called Coronation Street Catch-up.
To bridge the gap between the two, you can be brought up to date with a two-hour special, Coronation Street: From Here to Now, produced by ITV Studios label, Shiver, for TVNZ which will air Sunday 10 June at 8.30pm on TVNZ 1. This will recap key storylines across the 18 month lag.
