Making sport and events accessible

CTV has long provided coverage of local sport. Entertaining Cantabrians and the wider New Zealand audience with spectacular sport and events coverage is a fundamental part of CTV’s identity, now more than ever.

CTV Events has the ability to live stream any event to a Canterbury audience via Freeview Channel 40 and anyone, anywhere via streaming on ctv.co.nz.

The events are packaged within a programme, played out within a prime-time schedule and uploaded to the CTV website to enable viewing on demand.

CTV Events has covered the following events:

  • UC Championships (1st XV rugby)
  • Mainland Football (1st XV football)
  • SKOPE Classic (motor sports)
  • Junior Tall Ferns vs China (basketball)


Draw a crowd, attract an audience and following for any event by having it filmed and edited by the the CTV Events team.

The CTV Events team are specialists in broadcasting events for Canterbury organisations.

“We have covered a multitude of events over the last 25 years: CRFU rugby matches, football games, basketball and South Island Farmer of the Year finals night, just to name a few. Clients can have the confidence to deal with a dedicated team of professionals to bring their event to life via CTV broadcast and live stream, as well as offering on-demand access for audiences to watch and enjoy,” Kerry Klemick, CTV and Digital Sales Manager, says.

Star Media has invested in world-leading live streaming technology over the last 18 months, which provides a very affordable and professional product for clients.
