Television New Zealand says there will be no eleventh hour reprieve for TVNZ7.

Last year the Government decided not to renew funding for the digital channel, meaning it will go off air in the middle of this year.

TVNZ's acting chief executive Rodney Parker has told a parliamentary hearing that remains the case.

"No we aren't expecting to receive alternative proposals and no we are not preparing alternative proposals for the ongoing funding of TVNZ7.''
