BBC UKTV, one of the BBC’s International television channels, have announced they will once again not be showing the Eurovision Song Contest again this year. BBC UKTV showed the Contest between 2014 and 2016. In 2016, they only showed the Grand Final after previously also broadcasting the Semi Finals.
Stratos (now Face TV), broadcast the Contest between 2009 and 2011. Currently no other New Zealand Broadcaster has shown interest in broadcasting the Contest yet.
