Non-English-language drama VoD service Walter Presents is making its debut in New Zealand via national broadcaster TVNZ’s on-demand offering.
A dedicated section on the TVNZ OnDemand homepage will carry more than 250 hours of scripted programming available for free with English-language subtitles.
The launch slate will include Belgian series 13 Commandments, Dutch thriller The Adulterer and French crime drama Vanished by the Lake.
Walter Iuzzolino, co-founder and curator of Walter Presents, said: “New Zealanders are renowned for their love of travel and their curiosity about the world, so I am really delighted and excited to offer a slice of so many different cultures for their enjoyment on-demand in the comfort of their own homes.
“TVNZ is one of the world’s most established and admired broadcasters and we’re truly thrilled to be partnering with them to make the very best international drama freely available to view anytime and anywhere.”
Walter Presents first launched a curated selection of subtitled series via Channel 4’s streaming platform, All 4, in the UK in 2016. The service recently passed more than 100 million views in the UK and has also launched in Australia, Italy and the US.
