Slingshot to launch Global Mode region-switcher

Slingshot is upgrading its Global Mode service so Kiwi Netflix users can switch between regions.

The region-switching function makes it easy to toggle between the US, UK, and New Zealand versions of Netflix.

Slingshot General Manager Taryn Hamilton says the region-switcher is designed to make it easy for people to watch content from different Netflix catalogues.

“We welcome Netflix to New Zealand. Kiwis have been singing out for this service, and it’s fantastic it’s launching.

“But because initially the Netflix New Zealand content is likely to be weaker than overseas catalogues, users will want to switch to alternative regions to get the content they want.

“That’s why we are implementing region-switching, which will allow our customers to watch a range of Netflix catalogues.”
The region switching feature will launch in March free-of-charge to Slingshot customers.

Hamilton says while a range of streaming services have launched lately, he expects Netflix to quickly become dominant, due to its ease of use, lower price, and large international catalogue accessible via Global Mode.
