Te Māngai Pāho provides contestable funding for the production of Māori language and Māori culture content for broadcast on free to air television channels and distribution via online platforms.

Having the content we fund available on multiple channels will improve the chances of that content finding a wide audience. Te Māngai Pāho has clear policies around language planning, channel preferences and accessibility; all applicants for funding should understand those policies.
Sundays at 8.30am on TVNZ1
