In another post I started a list of legal music downloads in New Zealand, and thanks to so many suggestions from folks in the comments and Twitter I decided to compile a similar list for movies and TV episodes.
I don't see as many options for downloading or streaming movies and TV series as we can find for music, but here are the ones available in New Zealand now:
- ABC News (TV only)
- Al Jazeera (TV only)
- ClearBits (movies only)
- eCastTV (TV only)
- Fox News (TV only)
- France 24 (TV only)
- IGLOO (movies and TV, requires IGLOO box)
- IMDB TV
- IMDB Movies
- Internet Archive (movies, music, books)
- iSky (TV only)
- iTunes (movies only)
- LiveStation (TV only)
- Mubi (movies)
- NFL Game Pass (NFL matches, free, limited time only)
- NZ On Screen (TV only)
- Parliament TV (TV only)
- QuickFlix (movies and TV)
- TiVo Caspa (movies and TV, requires TiVo box)
- TV3 On Demand (TV only)
- TVNZ On Demand (TV only)
- Viki (TV shows, movies)
- Vodo (movies only, evidence that P2P is not only for illegal content)
- Ziln (web content only)
- Zune Marketplace (movies only)
Like I said in the previous post, just because you pay for downloading something doesn't make it legal - it could be that someone is just getting your money while not having the legal rights to distribute the movie. The list above is only of legal video, movie and TV services available for New Zealand users.
Also movie and TV services in New Zealand have long delays when releasing new content, unlike the music services. This is probably one of the reasons why so many people buy music, but pirate videos. We just wish the industry would catch up with times.
If you know of any other options, post in the comments...
