NZ TV Education Channel

Home Learning | Papa Kāinga TV will start education broadcasting for early learners and students (Years 1–10) from 9am on Wednesday April 15. Māori Television will launch a series of te reo educational programmes (for ages 0 to 18) on the same day.

Home Learning | Papa Kāinga TV will be free to air, on TVNZ channel 2+1 and on TVNZ on Demand, as well as on Sky Channel 502.

It will run from 9am to 3pm on Monday to Friday with programming for children and young people aged 0 to 15, as well as for parents. Home Learning TV will be on air for one month – with provision to extend beyond that depending on the lockdown situation.

Papa Kāinga TV programming will be grouped for early learners, primary and secondary students. All programmes will feature highly experienced teachers and presenters, along with a range of wellbeing and movement experts.

Content will include play, literacy mathematics, science, te reo Māori, physical education and wellbeing. There will also be  Pacific language content.

Māori Television te reo content will focus on learning at home for tamariki, rangatahi and whānau, aged from 0 to 18. It will also be tailored to specific age groups during the day, with learning content tamariki can do on their own, with siblings or as a whānau.

The channel will broadcast around 300 hours of educational content over the next 10 weeks. Programming will feature some of the most recognised faces in te ao Māori.
