The audio description, which is funded by NZ On Air, will be accessible to owners of Freeview HD and Freeview Satellite set-top boxes, and can be recorded by viewers.

The Australian Government’s Media Access Review has proposed a trial of audio description on ABC1 in the second half of 2011, subject to funding approval.
