On May 20, 1997, the channel broadcast the music video to Iggy Pop's song Pussy Walk. Local feminist group Women Against Pornography considered the music video "offensive and insulting to women".[1]

On December 2, 1997, Television New Zealand announced that the channel would close down on the following day.[2]
