I have netflix and love it. But would also like to watch some recent releases. Particularly Fast furious 7 as I missed it at the theatres.

Is there any source for this in NZ?

There is also Vudu. But I see that both Vudu and Amazon only have this title for sale at the moment $14.99(US) and with the current exchange rate it might be better to either wait or go old school and head down to the video store to rent it!

Titles come as "Buy" for a couple of weeks and then the option to Rent come later.

Found a local DVD store with 3 bluray new releases for $9. stoked.

Seems we are not quite there yet in NZ for streaming, would be nice if netflix could get the rights for everything.

Itunes sounds like a good alternative for ones I cant find in store. Cheers.

If you want new releases, Netflix is not the streaming service for you (even US Netflix).

Their model is older releases (unless they are Netflix Originals).

iTunes or Amazon instant video for new release rentals.

And if they get the rights for everything you would still expect to only pay $12.99 a month?

I use xbox video (Film and TV)/quickflix for my rented sources.  Works well.  And with Windows 10, you'll have access to xbox film and tv.
