03 Mar 2015

Vodafone has today announced it is teaming up with Netflix as the exclusive communications launch partner in New Zealand, offering Kiwis the opportunity to have Netflix streaming on their smartphones.

From March 24, Vodafone will give customers Netflix service free for 6 months when they sign up for 24 months to one of its Red+ mobile plans. 

Partnering for the launch in New Zealand, the link between the two providers ‘highlights Vodafone’s continued commitment to put the best content and entertainment in front of Kiwis’.

Armed with Vodafone’s reliable 4G mobile network, customers will be able to access content using smartphones, tablets or laptops. 

“We know how excited Kiwis are about the arrival of Netflix, and are delighted to be partnering with the Netflix team to launch in the home of ‘The Hobbit: Desolation of Smaug,’’ says Matt Williams, Vodafone consumer director.

‘’We’ve got New Zealand’s largest 4G network so our customers can have the best seat in the house on their mobile.

“New Zealanders are showing us just how much great mobile content has become part of their everyday,” Williams says. “Recent research highlighted that 41% of our customers stream content at least once a month.”

The promotional offer is available to customers until June 30, 2015.
