History edit

Kidzone was originally a 12-hour service running on former TVNZ channel TVNZ 6. It then ran on TVNZ 7 for a year before its closure in 2012. TVNZ launched TVNZ Kidzone as TVNZ Kidzone24 on 1 May 2011.

TVNZ closed the channel on 30 April 2016, due to SKY's contract with TVNZ expiring at the end of that month. It was made available via TVNZ OnDemand on May 1, 2016.[2]
