They were visiting as part of the NZ Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade’s visiting media programme.

NCTV is a French private general-interest television station broadcast in the territorial community of New Caledonia, based in Koohne (Koné).

It is the first private television channel to be broadcast on digital terrestrial television (DTT) in the French overseas territory.

The French broadcasting regulator approved licences for NCTV and NC9 in 2013, reported Radio NZ International.

At the time, NCTV said it wanted to help the territory’s mainly Kanak north integrate in the spirit of the accords on greater autonomy.
