How much broadband data will I use watching Lightbox?

We estimate that 60 minutes of Lightbox video streaming uses around 1GB (on standard definition) and 3GB on High Definition (HD).

Our Unlimited Broadband plans are a great way of getting the peace of mind so that you don't have to worry about Lightbox using up your data cap.

What are the minimum broadband speed requirements for watching Lightbox?

Lightbox requires a minimum internet bandwidth of 2Mbps in order to access quality viewing of the content.

Slow or low quality video

Lightbox requires a minimum internet bandwidth of 2Mbps to get a consistent stream. For an optimal HD / large screen experience, around 10Mbps bandwidth is required. Steps can be taken to improve broadband speeds by updating your home wiring and installing splitters and this is done as a matter of course with the installation of VDSL and Ultra Fibre. Also remember that if other users are on the internet consuming bandwidth in the home at the same time, the bandwidth available for Lightbox could be reduced.

To support the online streaming of shows in high definition customers on:

  • ADSL will need to have broadband speeds of at least 5Mbps down (we suggest you check your broadband speed to be sure)
  • Ultra VDSL's increased speeds of from 15Mbps* downstream ensure even smoother streaming
  • Ultra Fibre's speeds of more than 30Mbps* downstream which is up to 7x faster than ADSL even when using multiple devices in the home would ensure the best streaming
  • * Indicative speeds. Individual customers may not experience these speeds due to a variety of factors such as distance to exchange or cabinet, house wiring, computer speed, number of connected devices, ages of connected devices, etc.

What is the difference between the Lightbox Standard and Premium Plans?

Spark customers on eligible Spark plans receive the Lightbox Standard Plan (worth $12.99 per month) on us for the life of their plan. And as a Spark customer you are eligible to upgrade to the Lightbox Premium Plan for only $3 per month (valued at $15.99 per month) which has additional features like being able to download all TV shows, or to have four screens on the go at once. Go to www.lightbox.co.nz/helpsite for more information.
