2degrees jumps on the bundle bandwagon with Amazon Prime

11 Mar 2019

2degrees is teaming up with Amazon to offer Amazon Prime Video memberships to its customers. 

Chief of Consumer at 2degrees Scott Taylor said he was delighted to be able to give customers a strong content offering.

“We know Kiwis love a good TV series or film and we know Amazon Prime Video will have huge appeal. This is a global brand that has made significant strides with original and award-winning content, and we’re delighted to offer that to 2degrees broadband customers,” he says.  

Amazon Prime Video will give Kiwis access to thousands of popular movies and TV series, such as ‘All or Nothing: New Zealand All Blacks’, ‘The Grand Tour’ featuring Jeremy Clarkson, ‘Homecoming’ starring Julia Roberts, and the critically acclaimed and award-winning ‘The Marvelous Mrs Maisel’. 

Customers can access Prime Video on multiple devices at once - from compatible Smart TVs, tablets or smartphones. 

Content can also be downloaded to be watched offline on compatible devices. 

To celebrate the launch, 2degrees has a joining offer for new customers who sign up to a 12-month unlimited broadband plan - they’ll get 1 year of Amazon Prime Video included with their plan, compliments of 2degrees (a value of $107.88/year), as well as a $200 joining credit. 

Existing customers who are not on a contract, can qualify for 1 year of Amazon Prime Video compliments of 2degrees if they sign up to a 12-month unlimited broadband plan. 

Existing customers on the 80GB plan can try Amazon Prime Video with an introductory offer of six months at half price (currently NZD $4.49).

Or they can upgrade to a 12-month unlimited broadband plan and get 1 year of Amazon Prime Video compliments of 2degrees.
