Our Story

You are at the heart of our mission – to put Sky in the life of every New Zealander; connecting you with the stories and sport you love, in ways to suit you.

We’re all about bringing you the very best sport and entertainment. Whether you’re ready to sit up and cheer every All Blacks and Silver Ferns match, binge on the entire series of Game of Thrones, get to grips with what’s happening to our planet, or laugh and cry over classic movies, reality TV or local and global nail-biting drama, it’s right here. For you. On Sky.

We’re here to entertain you, any way you want. On your TV, your smartphone, on a tablet or computer, at home, at the beach, in your sport club or workplace – wherever, whenever.

We started in 1990 and set out to change the way Kiwis watched TV,  offering the best possible choice. We’ve brought more entertainment, news and sport to New Zealanders than ever before and we’ve led the way with the first all-digital and high definition experience available. 

You are now in control of what you want to watch with My Sky, and can enjoy sport and entertainment anywhere thanks to our streaming services, Sky Go, Sky Sport Now and Neon.

For nearly 30 years, we’ve helped grow sport, from grassroots to the elite, and fuelled a nation of passionate fans. We’ve also supported Aotearoa’s creative talent, bringing great New Zealand’s stories to the world.

Our Sky Crew absolutely loves to reward and inspire more than 990,000 customers and we are proud to be the team behind New Zealand’s leading sport and entertainment company.
