  1. WOW, May has lots of new shows and movies. Speaking of which, if you guys haven’t seen Begin Again, you definitely should as it’s so wonderful 🙂

  2. Hi Phil. Do you know if Netflix is showing Pearson (Suits spin-off) as other Netflix territories seem to be showing it, or is it something to be shown on SoHo due to its licensing restrictions …?

  3. I would expect Lightbox to have first dibs as it was first to screen new seasons of Suits. It’s being distributed by NBCUniversal, which supplies Lightbox with a lot of content.

  4. Hey, Rosco. Lightbox has just confirmed it doesn’t have the rights to Pearson, so chances are it will be on Netflix NZ.

  5. Great! So it seems Netflix NZ is following the path of other Netflix territories and showing it here. I’ll look out for an upcoming Netflix “Heads Up”.
