Home Learning | Papa Kāinga TV is free to air, on TVNZ channel 2+1 and on TVNZ OnDemand, as well as on Sky Channel 502 and Vodafone TV. It runs from 9am to 3pm on schooldays with programming for children and young people aged 2 to 15, as well as for parents.
Each week we’ll be publishing details of the coming week’s lessons so teachers, parents and learners can plan ahead. We will also focus on lessons that might be of interest or help deepen learning tasks set by teachers.
Because filming and editing is completed just a day or so before broadcast, the schedules published here are subject to change. We recommend you tune in a few minutes early to make sure you don’t miss the particular lessons you want to see. For the most up-to-date schedule, check the TV guide on your television or device.

Māori Television te reo content
Māori Television te reo Māori content focuses on learning at home for tamariki, rangatahi and whānau, aged between 0 to 18 who are in kōhanga reo, puna reo, kura tuatahi and wharekura. It is tailored to specific age groups throughout the day, with learning content tamariki can do on their own, with their siblings or together as a whānau.
Māori Television will broadcast around 300 hours of educational content for ākonga and whānau over 10 weeks. A number of Māori production companies have been engaged who have expertise and history in creating te reo Māori television content catering to a range of age levels. Programing features some of the most recognised faces in te ao Māori. More information is available on Kauwhata Reo or on Māori Television.
We’d love to hear from learners and their whānau about Home Learning | Papa Kāinga TV – learners can email examples of their learning to info@HLTV.co.nz. There’s also a free text number – 5811 – for learners to interact with presenters and teachers.
