Coronation Street is the UK’s biggest soap, and it’s an audience favourite in New Zealand as well. For years, New Zealand has lagged behind the UK’s broadcast, with episodes airing 18 months after their original transmission on TVNZ 1.
From June 11, viewers will be able to watch Coronation Street in sync with the UK, following a deal with ITV Studios Global Entertainment. Renamed 'Coronation Street 2018', TVNZ’s primetime episodes will air one week behind the UK on a Wednesday, Thursday and Friday evening at 9.30pm.
John Kelly, General Manager of Programming says:
"Coronation Street has been a cornerstone of TVNZ 1’s schedule for decades. We’ve had a lot of feedback from viewers over the years, expressing their frustration with being so far behind the UK. We’re with them on this, which is why we’ve decided to take this huge step."
For viewers wanting to be brought up to date, a two-hour special produced by ITV Studios label, Shiver, will air on Sunday June 10, recapping key storylines across the 18 month lag.
This special was created specifically for TVNZ to ensure viewers who would like to jump ahead get to see all the key moments before the new episodes start.
John Whiston, Creative Director of Serial Dramas at ITV Studios, said:
"We're really excited that our friends in New Zealand will now be seeing the same episodes of Coronation Street the same time as people in the UK. Watching Corrie is a shared experience - shared between families, shared between friends, shared between fans as they discuss who's in love with who, who's keeping secrets from who and who's planning to murder who! So it's brilliant that people in New Zealand with now be able to be a proper part of that fun conversation."
