He waka eke noa. We are all in this together.

The Able team is working hard to keep you informed during this unprecedented and uncertain time. Our captioning services will continue throughout the Level 4 lockdown. Our dedicated team of captioners will be bringing you live captions for TVNZ 1’s Midday, 6pm and Tonight bulletins, Seven Sharp and other special coverage, as well as regular non-live programming.

The audio description service will continue on a reduced number of programmes. Please check our website for up to date details of audio described programming during this time.

We are committed to prioritising the safety and wellbeing of our team members and their families during this time while ensuring we continue to make media accessible for all New Zealanders.

Me mahi tahi tātou mo te oranga o te katoa. We must work together for the wellbeing of all.
