…it could blunt the appeal of Sky TV’s pending Netflix-style service Neon, Spark’s recently launched Lightbox — which has the ambitious target of 70,000 subscribers by June next year — and the more established Quickflix, which operates on both sides of the Tasman.However, as Keall and lots of other people on Twitter point out, Sky has locked-in a lot of popular video content rights for New Zealand.
