Prime is the second privately owned national free-to-air television broadcaster currently available in New Zealand. The broadcaster airs a varied mix of programming, largely imported from Australia, the UK and the United States, as well as free-to-air rugby union and cricket matches. It was originally owned by Prime Television Limited in Australia. Prime later entered into a joint-venture agreement with Nine Entertainment Co. (Nine Network Australia), causing the network's graphics to look like Nine Network. On 8 February 2006, the Commerce Commission gave Sky Television clearance to purchase the station for NZ$31 million. Prime's analogue terrestrial signals had covered 91% of the population via the state-owned Kordia transmission network. It is currently available in digitally free-to-air form via Sky Network Television on satellite and Kordia on terrestrial. Vodafone also carry the channel for their cable subscribers in Wellington and Christchurch.

Prime has the free-to-air rights to cricket and rugby union, meaning Prime TV's schedule includes delayed coverage of Super Rugby games, All Black tests and Black Caps cricket matches. Prime used to broadcast a weekly Sunday afternoon sports highlights show called Ultimate Sport Sunday, which included highlights of cricket, rugby union, NRL, Formula One, WRC and Moto GP. With Prime now 100% owned by Sky Network Television, (holder of the pay television rights for the above events), it is well placed to continue holding the rights indefinitely, as Sky is effectively selling them to itself. Prime was also granted the rights to broadcast the free to air screening of Euro 2008. Free to air coverage of the 2012 London Olympics was seen on Prime with Sky being the new rights holder. Prime is the Free TV broadcaster of the ANZ Championship and shows highlights weekly. Prime is the Free TV broadcaster of the Copa del Rey Final in New Zealand since 2015.
