surfisup1000: This can only be bad news, there are no benefits to someone who already uses netflix US.
They may block NZ access to US netflix, possibly simply blocking kiwi credit cards would be enough to cause me issues.
The NZ netflix product will have less content (due to other providers who already have content rights here).
NZ netflix will be more expensive.
In its current state a Netflix account is not tied to any region, so they're certainly not going to start blocking kiwi credit cards, given they're opening the service up to NZ. They would have to change subscriptions to be tied to a particular region, a presumably large-scale change that certainly isn't going to be prompted by adding NZ to the map.
