Just bought a smart tv, Netflicks

lightbox, neon all new to me
Is one better than the other or are they pretty much the same

not sure about the others, but netflix has a free 30 day trial. See and decide for yourself.

geek_brycer, Apr 10, 11:12 am

they all have a 30 day free trial and they all want your credit card details ( in the hope you forget to cancel )

what is the show range like on netflix NZ?

geek_bushyy4, Apr 10, 1:24 pm


given they are new to the country - its limited but should grow over time
Recommend the US netflix - you'll need a vpn to change the IP from NZ to US ( hola better internet is free ) and then its just hdmi from the comp to tv

If you're a Spark customer you get 12 months free on Lightbox

I tried all, Neon is a no go.

Lightbox is decent but more expensive. ($12.95)

Netflix has good content and is cheaper ($9.95)

I suggest a trial of each and see which works for you.

If you all ready pay for sky , these will be an extra cost?.

geek_5425, Apr 10, 5:45 pm



Yes - these are all seperate from sky ( except neon ) which is just more recycled crap

geek_trade_menow, Apr 10, 5:46 pm


lightbox is free to Spark customers for 12mths , but id recommend getting a unlimited data plan
