[News] Spark Gives Away 12-months Lightbox to its Customers!


Spark New Zealand is giving its more than 600,000 home broadband customers a chance to embrace their inner TV bingewatcher by shouting them a year’s Lightbox subscription to watch their favourite shows through this bundled offer.

It was not long ago since Lightbox had a promotion with Hells Pizza, where if you signed up to their free 30-day free trial during Labour Weekend, you got a free Hells Pizza coupon to use!

Launched last year, Lightbox is an online TV service with over 6000 ad-free hours of TV shows including hit shows like Breaking Bad, Outlander and Golden Globe-winning, Transparent – which can be viewed on computers, tablets, Smart TVs and PlayStations – and with more content and devices constantly being added.

Spark Home, Mobile & Business Chief Executive, Chris Quin, says TV viewers used to have to ‘nibble away’ at their favourite show, episode by episode, week by week. But with Lightbox, they can choose whether they want to binge on the whole series in one sitting, or spread it out over the month. And they can watch it on their TV via a growing range of devices – no set top box or set up costs.

“The future of TV is online. One billion hours of online TV is now watched globally each month, and we know the TV watching habits of our customers are rapidly shifting to on-line and on-demand – where they can watch what they want, when they want. So we’re kicking off the year by saying “thanks” to our broadband customers – and offering them the great perk of 12-months of Lightbox bundled with their broadband, on us.” says Quin.

“We’ve also recently announced we will be cutting the price of our Unlimited Data plans, which are ideal for binge-ing on Lightbox as much as you could possibly want –the only limit is the extent of your appetite.”

“This is part of our overall Thanks programme for customers, and mirrors our added-value bundled services in the mobile space like free Spotify Premium and Spark Socialiser.

Lightbox Chief Executive Kym Niblock welcomed the offer, saying that it will help even more New Zealanders enjoy the benefits of Lightbox.

“2015 is set to be the year that online TV in New Zealand moves from niche to mainstream, and Lightbox is now well established as a fantastic product with great content. So it’s absolutely the right time to up the ante with a game-changing offer that means even more New Zealanders can experience the insanely good TV of Lightbox, because life is too short for bad TV.”

Just in time for Spark customers, Lightbox has exclusive rights to the most hotly tipped show of 2015, Breaking Bad prequel Better Call Saul. Premiering in February, Better Call Saul centres on the character Saul Goodman six years before he meets Walter White.
