The country’s last analogue television transmitter has been switched off.
The analogue signal for homes in the top half of the North Island was turned off at 2am on Sunday.
Television can now be viewed only on the digital signal throughout the country.
Experts say it was the most significant change to television broadcasting since colour was introduced in 1974.
About 94% of New Zealanders have already made the switch from analogue to digital.
By last week, there were 49,000 households in the upper North Island still to go digital.
