All your favorite music programmes and interviews will still be broadcast on the radio, you can 'Listen Live' on our website (look top right), on the RNZ apps, iHeartRadio and via RNZ's Sky and Freeview channels. You can also catch up using the streaming-on-demand service available from our apps or website.

However, due to changes in music licensing we are not able to offer you audio-which-includes-music for download, on iTunes, Spotify or other podcast platforms or RSS feeds.

Listen when it suits you on the RNZ website and apps

All of our audio will continue to be available for you to stream on-demand from the RNZ website and apps, so please visit us there for more great listening.

Some items with music in them will be available for download from RNZ for 30 days from broadcast. After 30 days you are requested to delete these items from your device, Mission Impossible-like.
