Lightbox six month free for Spark customers:

Lightbox offer 30 days free for everyone else.

Imho better show selection than Netflix NZ, but tv series only.

Does it currently work on my Apple TV..... No, too much agro to get it working (lazy I know but TV is a lazy mans entertainment)

We have just got rid of Multi-room for Sky because we watch more Netflix than Sky.

It may end up that we get rid of Sky altogether within the next 6-12 months if Neon/Lightbox/etc becomes available on the New Apple TV

Light box need to arrange for me to pay this through my Spark bill if they want me to continue beyond the free time. Not interested if it's added to my credit card each month.
Reduced rate for Spark customers would be good too. There are so many other services I could spend my coin on, Light box need to make it as attractive as possible to someone as lazy as me.

I thought this was 12 months or is this a different promo?

I've grown to quite like Lightbox, in some aspects it falls behind Netflix but in others it excels, I'm still not sure I watch enough of either to keep both subscriptions though unfortunately

Yep. 12 month different promo from last year.

Mr Robot just appeared so I'm really happy with the trial so far.
