There is the Spark plan which we are on and it only costs us an extra $10 per month with Spark for Standard Netflix and Lightbox. I was paying $15/m with Netflix prior to signing with the Spark plan. So that is now a saving of $7/m.

 

Fibre or Wireless: Entertainment From $75 - $95/mth including Netflix & Lightbox

I am also seriously thinking of cancelling or suspending my Amazon Video now that I am out of the cheap 6 month trial. Amazon rates is dependant on the current bank rates and I have noticed that my monthly bill fluctuates between $0.80 & $1.50 per month.

 

Netflix has far better content than Amazon Video.

 

I am thinking of putting the Amazon subscription into Disney Plus NZ at $9.99/mth or one year at $99.99

 

But is Disney Plus NZ better than Amazon Video, I am guessing it might be.

I did the $100 deal and wished hadn't.

 

Only been one good original series so far for me which is the Mandalorian. Thought there would have been more by now.

 

Because of Covid19 some movies being released early on it like Frozen 2.

 

Recommend do the $10 a month, then the year deal if like the old content range.

 

The PG13 can handicap them to, I was reading that some stuff was being edited out of Agents of Shield in one of the series as they were worried about it not fitting in with PG13 which isn't good either. If Disney made Lock and Key (Netflix) they'd probably end up passing it to Hulu or something because of their PG13 thing.

 

If it was that or Prime Video I prefer Prime. Some National Geographic stuff looks interesting on Disney. 

 

They may put out a marvel series etc in future (non cartoon) which could change my mind.

 

Don't see anything wrong with no free trial of Netflix, most people in NZ would know what service offers.
