Streaming Netflix in NZ Just Got Much Easier

Streaming Netflix in NZ Just Got Much Easier

New Zealand and Australian Netflix users can now save time, money and their data allowances thanks to NightShift, a device available exclusively from Kiwi internet provider Wireless Nation.

NightShift pre-loads Netflix in advance so you can watch your favourite shows and movies in full HD when you want, using standard Netflix players.

Wireless Nation’s technical director, Tom Linn says he’s pleased to be able to offer this easy solution to customers frustrated with slow internet speeds due to congestion at peak times.
“We listened to feedback from our customers, went looking for a solution and found one! NightShift is ideal for people living in rural areas struggling with small data caps, or for those urban dwellers whose internet connection isn’t fast enough to stream in HD during peak hours.

“For Wireless Nation’s rural customers, this is a great saver because they can pre-load Netflix shows and movies at night, using their free off peak data,” says Mr Linn.

NightShift will soon be available directly for Wireless Nation customers and also to ISPs keen to resolve this issue for their own users.

“ISP’s will appreciate that NightShift can help reduce congestion; managing traffic volumes through user’s ability to ‘time shift’ their Netflix usage during off peak times,” says Mr Linn.

"NightShift extends the reach of content providers by delivering content into the homes of people with limited broadband access. This makes it possible for people to enjoy these services that would not otherwise be able to," says Gerrit Nagelhout, CEO, Aterlo Networks.

"We are excited to have Wireless Nation join our network of 200 distribution partners, and be able to offer this to customers and ISP’s within New Zealand and Australia."

NightShift comes in the form of a dual-band router that plugs into the back of your current router. The NightShift technology is installed into the router so it’s ready to use from the moment you get it.

To make enquiries about NightShift call Wireless Nation 0800 101 143 or visit www.wirelessnation.co.nz
