"When will analogue transmissions cease?
A target analogue switch-off date will be set once digital television reaches 60% of New Zealand households. A firm date will be set when digital television take-up has reached 75% of households or in 2012 ― whichever is earlier."

Hi, a point to note is that the 60 and 75% thresholds is made up of both Sky(PayTV) and FreeView, as Sky already approaches 50% home penetration the figure is not too far off.
