Wilson and Horton goes the Xtra way

Xtra has captured the considerable online business of the Wilson and Horton stable, which will launch on the Internet early next year.

Xtra has captured the considerable online business of the Wilson and Horton stable, which will launch on the Internet early next year.

The New Zealand Herald and The Listener are likely to be the first publications to gain an Internet presence, as the culmination of a notably cautious approach to new media.

The Listener has had a domain registered for nearly two years via Iconz, but the new wilsonandhorton.co.nz domain has been registered through Xtra. Dealings over the Internet project are said to have been handled at a corporate, rather than an editorial level.

Xtra has sold the publishers of the Herald not only a place on the Xtra site, but the authoring services of Digital Video Productions, the Telecom-owned, Brisbane-based multimedia company which has been the source of some tension within Telecom's new media enterprises.
