First opened in 1975, TVNZ slowly moved its operations from Avalon to Auckland during the 1980s. Last year TVNZ sold the studios to a local property investor.
Since then the studios have gone from strength to strength. Because they're no longer owned by TVNZ, they've picked up business from Prime and MediaWorks.
