Ziln joins Sony on screens

Ziln is bringing on-demand TV to Sony televisions, marking an expansion into a "full screen lounge room experience".

The Internet TV network is now available on Sony internet televisions, bringing more than 20 free channels of local content.

“This is very exciting for us because it means Ziln grows from being an internet TV Network accessible via home computers to being a true lean back, full screen lounge room experience,” said Ziln spokesman Paul Brennan.

Ziln has been operating since September 2009 and currently carries 25 channels of on-demand New Zealand content including music, sport, documentaries, fishing and hunting, aviation, Archives New Zealand’s classic newsreels and more.

Anyone can create their own internet TV channel using Ziln.
