You have the very poor menu of TV programs. I wonder I could watch TV of PyeongChang 2018 Olympic games.

Kia Ora, We have a large selection DVDs to rent to watch in our TV room, or if you do not fancy a DVD we have NZ Freeview available to watch. I believe the Winter Olympics are being shown on Prime. Kind Regards, Joel Ali, Assistant Manager
