New Zealand's first full-time shopping channel has kicked off, but there were a few small teething problems - and a complaint about a bad taste banana joke.

Starring fulltime presenters Mike Puru, Candy Lane, Lucy Gallaugher and Monty Betham, the Shopping Channel broadcast for the first time on Sky channel 18 and Freeview 18 from 7pm.

It's the first dedicated shopping channel in New Zealand to screen 24 hours a day. The channel is hoping for 600,000 Kiwi women to tune in each week.

But teething problems have been evident, with viewers complaining on Facebook about a "creepy" banana joke, "disgusting" food, and a lack of contact details showing up on screen.
