Mar 19, 2024

The big four streaming services in New Zealand – Netflix, Disney Plus, Neon and Prime Video – will be increasing their subscription prices. But there are some things you can do to bring down your costs.

As inflation continues to rise, so does the cost of living across the board. It will not come as a shock that New Zealand's beloved popular streaming services are having to follow suit. 

The big four streaming services in New Zealand – Netflix, Disney Plus, Neon and Prime Video – will be increasing their subscription prices in response to the current local and global economy. 

Here are the new prices for the monthly subscription for the four major streaming services.

Netflix: $20.99 (from 7 April 2024).

Disney: $18.99 (from 5 March 2024).

Neon: $19.99 (from January 2024).

Prime Video: $10.99 (from 4 March 2024).

However, not all is lost! There are a few things you can do to combat this without sacrificing entertainment and straining your budget. 

Choose the Cheapest Platform

Prime Video is still very much the cheapest streaming platform in New Zealand, only increasing from $7.99 to $10.99 for monthly subscriptions. Instead of having multiple services that we don’t often have time for or use, cut them down and go for the cheapest option. With a plethora of TV shows and movies, and a robust category of genres for kids and adults alike, you won’t be disappointed with Prime Video’s options.
