Channel Northland Te Raki TV re-launched Nov. 1st 2020 as the public access online television platform for the region of New Zealand we call Northland, and it’s ‘team of 200,000.’ We have been offering television services since 2008 and video production services since 2013.

Here is where Northlanders can tell their stories, and share stuff of interest to tens of millions around the world. Nearly five million kiwis live below us, with one million living overseas, and we welcome viewers around the world who want to see the paradise we call Te Tai Tokerau.

 You’ll see why we believe we truly live in paradise. Until then, enjoy Northland here… and let us know how you like us!
