A new look Neon is on its way


New Neon is on its way! The result of a love match between Lightbox and Neon, the biggest 100% New Zealand-owned streaming movie and entertainment platform will go live on 7 July 2020. Until then, the Lightbox and Neon teams are managing a merger; ensuring the systems, services and favourite shows like The Handmaid’s Tale and Game of Thrones are all in place for customers to enjoy, uninterrupted.

Ricki Taiaroa, who is heading up the mash-up of two loved brands says, “Neon and Lightbox have come into their own during lockdown. We’ve been stoked to see the growth frolightm customers streaming loads of binge-worthy TV and movies from the safety of their bubbles. This has set us up well to unite the two platforms under the new Neon brand and bring our customers the great content they deserve.”

“Lightbox and Neon customers are very passionate, and they’ve told us what they’d like to see, so we’re working hard to bring together the best parts of both. We can’t wait to see how New Zealand reacts when we launch new Neon on July 7. There’s going to be so much content in one place for only $13.95 per month. We reckon it’s a match made in binge-watching heaven.”

So, what’s changing?

  • Neon customers will have access to Lightbox’s best shows and series and Lightbox customers will be able to enjoy great Neon shows, series and selected movies from 7 July.
