How to watch Reservation Dogs in New Zealand


In New Zealand, Sterlin Harjo and Taika Waititi's hilarious coming of age comedy series is available to stream exclusively on Disney Plus' newly added brand, Star.

Star is a banner which allows Disney Plus to include more adult-oriented content, and was added to the service back in February, resulting in a slight increase of Disney Plus' subscription price.

While Disney Plus no longer offers a free trial, you can sign up to the service for as little as NZ$12.99 per month or NZ$129.99 per year.

To see what else the platform has on the menu (spoiler alert: we're talking everything Star Wars, Pixar, Marvel movies, The Simpsons and much, much more), you can head directly to the Disney Plus website.
