One in six New Zealanders have a hearing loss, but only 24-31% of our television programmes have captioning.


We have relaunched our nationwide petition calling for mandatory captioning on our TV shows and our OnDemand platforms. 


We want to send a strong message to the government by gathering 5,000 signatures, which we will present to the Minister of Broadcasting and Digital to push for change.   

Captions On, 


2,035 signatures gathered so far and counting.
