Way back when black and white televisions were first launched in New Zealand, they were around the same price as a new car. And everyone wanted one. That’s when a forward thinking businessman named Stan Pemberton had a vision. To make televisions more accessible, by renting them, on affordable weekly payments. Stan opened the doors of Dominion Television Services in Howick, back in 1962.
From those humble beginnings emerged dtr. And while black and white televisions and renting appliances has become a thing of the past, Stan’s vision of making things accessible to everyday kiwis is at the heart of what dtr stands for today.
