A new hub for news

MediaWorks have created a central hub for news across all their TV and Radio brands, complemented by a single Newshub app. Newshub brings readers the latest news stories, up-to-the-minute coverage, live news feeds, and high-quality videos, all within a gorgeous mobile app.

Focusing on browsability

The ‘snackable’ news experience was a top priority, changing the way news is browsed. We achieved this through readable headlines, clear differentiation between categories, and instinctive gestures to navigate through and between articles.

News at a glance

News at a glance highlights the major stories that you need to know now, providing a quick insight into what is happening in New Zealand and around the world.

Video at its best

Not only is the app functional, but also pulls through high quality and lightning-fast live streaming of TV news programmes during the day. After the news has broadcast, it is segmented into snippets that sit alongside the key stories within the app for a richer experience.

Gorgeous interactions

The app is intuitive, tactile and enriched with micro-interactions, allowing users to easily swipe, scroll and browse on the go.

It’s an outstanding product, made so easy by working with Alphero. It’s the best possible outcome for us!
