Registering with TVNZ OnDemand

Why do I need to register to watch TVNZ OnDemand?

We're changing TVNZ OnDemand to make it work better. There's a few reasons why we've needed to make registration (and login) compulsory. These changes are coming really soon, so it's worth registering now so you don't have to do it later. Plus, you'll go into the prize draw to win a trip to LA!

The changes will help make the site work better and give you a more personal experience. Like creating a watchlist and setting up your favourite shows so there right there and ready for you when you log in and enabling our shiny new "pick up and play" feature.

If you're confused about something or want more information, we've put some FAQs together below. If your question isn't answered here, send us a note using our Contact Form and we'll do our best to answer it and add it to this list.
