    tvnz is built on the solid base of decades of state funding and build. The state also trained nearly all the broadcasters and makes most of the homegrown television. Self funding just means the ads cost more. Silly to call that a business.

    TVNZ is still the state broadcaster and, with ownership comes responsibility, not just a dividend (or return on investment of capital paid for by taxpayers - cash flow might come from advertising sales but the infrastructure: brand and other things that the future is built on was seeded in the nursery of the state).

    TVNZ covered the cost of the flag referendum last year, $25 million.

    Government advertising is a very nice and juicy portfolio for an ad rep.

    Same with our electricity network. We've seen how smoothly that transfer played out. Boiled frogs will sell our grandmas.

    Making profits out of infrastructure hurts the infrastructure everytime, structures by inference need to be patient and strong and kind to its workers, set an example of civilty.
