Streaming on Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, or Disney+ is one of the most common uses for a fast broadband deal. That’s why a lot of internet providers in NZ offer streaming platform bundles with their plans.

When you purchase these bundle deals, you often get free streaming subscriptions for a certain timeframe. The catch is, you may have to commit to their contract, or pay a pricey termination fee to cancel your plan in the middle of a term. But this should all be worth it, especially if you’re a movie geek, drama enthusiast, or just a casual binge-watcher.

Here’s where you can get free streaming subscriptions bundled in your broadband plan.

Spark: Free Netflix

Netflix has one of the largest streaming libraries, so it’s a steal that Spark offers this for free! By getting a Netflix subscription, you get to watch the hottest and trending content such as:

  • Squid Game (Season 1)
  • Bridgerton (Season 1)
  • Lupin (Parts 1 & 2)
  • Money Heist (Parts 1-5)
  • The Queen’s Gambit

Spark offers the Netflix Standard for free. This is usually worth $16.99 per month, with a free 30-day trial period. This allows you to watch on two devices simultaneously — be it on smart TVs, smartphones, PC, Mac, media players, or even gaming consoles.

Which streaming platform offers the best shows?

It all depends on what you want to watch. They’re all great streaming platforms, catering to a different set of audiences. They also have an easy-to-use interface, with all necessary controls and integration with whatever media device you’re using.

As a friendly guide, here’s how to choose a streaming platform, based on your preference:

  • Netflix - Fresh experimental films, series, and documentaries
  • Amazon Prime - oldie but goodie films — including classic B movies, and fresh concept series
  • Neon - Homegrown NZ classics, and foreign series from the UK
  • Disney+ - Childhood favourites, animated films, and movie series
  • HBO - American-produced series, films, variety shows, and more

Both the highlighted deals i clicked through to get turned out to be inaccurate speeds. Glimp saying 300/100 both providers only offering 100/20 for the price given, despite giving the same address in both sites. still giving 3 stars though as regardless the deals through Glimp are better than the standard advertised deals on the providers site.

Sign up didn't go quite the way it was meant to. But Kate called and she walked through everything so we could work out what went wrong. she was patient, friendly, supportive and kept me calm to finally get plan registration sorted ( still can't log in though - she must be magic )

Tara Davis , 2021-09-28

Found it really easy to find what i needed and also got a call regarding what deals might be best suited etc. Saves a lot of time. Highly reccommend glimp
