Bravo is the second New Zealand television channel owned and operated by MediaWorks New Zealand and NBCUniversal International Networks, broadcast via the state-owned Kordia transmission network and on MediaWorks' website ThreeNow. The channel launched on 3 July 2016. Bravo focuses on design, food, glamour and pop culture.[1]

History[edit]

Bravo launched on 3 July 2016. Following the closure of Four, a one and a half minute promotion aired, previewing the content to be expected on Bravo; the first show to be broadcast on Bravo was Top Chef, at 5:10am.

On 1 May 2017, it adopted a new, black, logo, to match its mother channel, the U.S. channel Bravo, which had changed its logo three months earlier.

Bravo Plus 1[edit]
