The streaming service Walter Presents has inked a deal with New Zealand state broadcaster TVNZ that brings a range of international dramas to local audiences starting this month.

The agreement makes an array of scripted programming exclusively available, free of charge and with English-language subtitles, via a dedicated Walter Presents section on the TVNZ OnDemand homepage. The offering for viewers in New Zealand includes the Belgian series 13 Commandments, Dutch thriller The Adulterer and French crime drama Vanished by the Lake.

Walter Iuzzolino, co-founder and curator of Walter Presents, commented: “New Zealanders are renowned for their love of travel and their curiosity about the world, so I am really delighted and excited to offer a slice of so many different cultures for their enjoyment on-demand in the comfort of their own homes. TVNZ is one of the world’s most established and admired broadcasters and we’re truly thrilled to be partnering with them to make the very best international drama freely available to view anytime and anywhere.”
