Winter Movies and Shows to Stream 2024 with Broadband Compare
Jun 4, 2024

Ready to snuggle up this winter for a night in streaming movies and shows? We have some recommendations to get you started!

Winter nights are dark and cold, which, in our opinion, are the perfect conditions for an evening snuggled up on the couch, streaming a good movie or TV show. That even snuggled up can be enhanced further when paired with a bowl of popcorn, freshly popped with your very own popcorn maker, a cup of tea, or a fizzy drink filled with ice cubes, carbonated with your very own soda machine. We have rounded up some of the top movie and TV show recommendations across New Zealand streaming platforms.

Did you Know that Streaming Services Have Increased their Prices?

Sadly, that is true. All the major streaming platforms in Aotearoa have increased their prices as of the start of the year. If you have multiple subscriptions, it may be a good idea to reassess which ones you actually use, and cancel any that you don’t. Why pay for something you don’t use? It’s also a good idea to compare the prices of different services:

Compare Broadband for Speed and Savings

It’s important that you are connected to the right internet speed and plan for your streaming needs. Each household will have different online needs and preferences. If you are a two-person household, who only use the internet for web browsing, emailing, and basic streaming, you may only need a speed of 50/100 Mbps. However, if you have a larger household, with lots of people connected at the same time, you may want to consider getting fibre 300 or even fibre 900
