NZ On Air - Irirangi Te Motu
NZ On Air (New Zealand's Broadcasting Commission) is a government broadcasting funding agency which invests in a range of local television, radio, music and new media content.

The New Zealand Film Commission, Film New Zealand and NZ On Air will work together on a number of specific projects under the umbrella of Screen New Zealand.
The Ministry manages NZ On Air's relationship with the Crown on behalf of the Minister of Broadcasting, monitoring the funding agreement between the Minister and the entity.
