New Scientist article New Zealand’s national broadcaster has announced it will stop broadcasting boxes, a move that could help improve the quality of the nation’s broadcasting.
The broadcaster, Weta Digital, announced the change on its website late last month, adding a box design and an option for boxes to be stacked on top of each other.
The move comes as more countries are experimenting with boxes to improve their communication with audiences.
In the US, a number of networks, including CNN, CBS, and NBC, have launched boxes to help them distribute their news content.
A box-shaped box is currently on display in the front of a local media centre in the UK.

In 1892, newspapers in Britain launched boxes and delivered news to their readers by means of a small, circular box.
Boxes were also popular in the United States, with newspapers in the US covering the presidential race through a large box at the top of their pages.
The boxes also featured prominently in US politics during the height of the Cold War, with politicians using the boxes to keep tabs on the nation and its political leaders.
The United States is still the only country to have a permanent national television network with a national television box, with a box set on display at the US Capitol.
The country’s national cable network has also seen a box-style approach to its news coverage, with boxes on the front pages of some cable channels.
A BBC documentary called Boxed: Inside the World of Boxed Communications, which aired in the first half of 2017, explored how the technology had changed the way people communicate.
A recent report from the Australian Broadcasting Corporation said that in 2016, Australians’ box-sized newsroom spaces accounted for a third of the Australian newsroom’s capacity, with many of the boxes used to promote the Australian Government’s media strategy.
In 2018, the Australian government introduced a number plans aimed at improving Australia’s newsroom, including the introduction of a new box-like format for delivering local government news, an online box service, and a new national box.
Australia’s box-based approach to news has also had some political repercussions, with the Federal Government recently announcing plans to introduce legislation that would allow for the use of boxes in national broadcasting.
In January, a House of Representatives committee also released a report that said the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) should consider introducing a ban on boxes in future national broadcast licences.
Australia was the first country to introduce a national box format for broadcast media in 2015.
The BBC has also been experimenting with different formats of news boxes, with several different box-styled newsboxes being installed in newsrooms across the UK and the US.
