TVNZ 6 is a digital-only, commercial-free television channel operated by Television New Zealand. It is available on the Freeview and TelstraClear InHomeTV platforms.

TVNZ 6 broadcasts three distinct services:
*TVNZ Kidzone, which screens preschool programming from 6.00 to 16.00
*TVNZ Family, which screens family-based programming from 16.00 to 20.30
*TVNZ Showcase, which screens arts and drama programming between 20.30 and 24.00.

The name TVNZ 6 was chosen because it was numeric, was deemed to allow 'a broader content structure than any descriptive title', and matches the number assigned to it on the Freeview electronic programme guide.cite web |url= |title=Freeview channels given names |accessdate=2007-07-20 |date=2007-06-12 |year=2007 |month=07 |publisher=Television New Zealand ]



"Kidzone" shows primarily repeated content such as "You and Me, Engie Benjy, Bumble, Fireman Sam, Fraggle Rock, Buzz and Poppy, Maggie and the Ferocious Beast, [ Boblins] , Number Jacks". It is hosted by presenter Kayne Peters, from 6am-4pm.


From 4pm to 8pm, the "Family" timeslot shows content that is "informative, safe and reliable"cite web |url= |title=Repeat prescription |accessdate=2007-07-20 |author=Rebecca Barry |date=2007-07-20 |year=2007 |month=07 |publisher=New Zealand Herald ] , such as "It's In the Bag", "A Dog's Show", "Location Location Location", "Pioneer House", "The Zoo", "Ground Force", "House Call", "Changing Rooms", "Colonial House", "Going Going Gone", "Country Calendar", "The Truth About Climate Change", "Rough Science", Science Shack", "Meet the Locals", and repeat episodes of "Shortland Street" and "Karaoke High". It is estimated that 37% of Family programming will be sourced from local archives.


Until midnight, "Showcase" features a mix of arts, documentaries, comedy and drama originally shown on the network's main channels TV One and TV2 with dramas such as "Flight of the Albatross, End of The Golden Weather, Jubilee, Clare Mataku, Doves of War, Street Legal, Orange Roughies, Duggan, Cover Story, City Life, Mercy Peak, Taonga, The Clinic, Marlin Bay, Plainclothes Cold Feet and Roy Hollsdotter Live" as well as comedies like "Matthew & Marc's Rocky Road", "Havoc & Newsboy", "Market Forces" and "Wait Till Your Father Gets Home"

Original content for the channel includes a half-hour arts show, "The Gravy", and a new talk show hosted by Finlay McDonald titled "Talk Talk". A segment called "NZ Directs" is expected to show a selection of films produced by students.
