Public Broadcasting II

The Herald headlines today a call from a bunch of old farts group of eminent New Zealanders for TVNZ to revert to being a public broadcaster.

I wrote a piece on this back in November, suggesting how this could be funded without increasing net public spending.

An alternative to this would be to create a number of regional low cost broadcasters (a bit like Triangle or Alt.TV but with more original local content). This works well with radio (bFM, George) - perhaps it would work for TV.
