Home-Delivery news from the information desk here at AroVideo...

Committed to the preservation and expansion of our DVD archive for many years to come for the access of all New Zealand residents...

AroVideo was founded in 1989 and for more than 30 years has built on our founding principle to connect customers with quality film and television to rent and purchase. We still operate as a humble video store situated in Wellington's Aro Valley, but extend our services nationwide via Home Delivery through this website. Our collection of over 25,000 titles now stands as the largest single collection of DVD and video titles in New Zealand.

We have always geared our library toward Film Festival fare - world cinema, classics, documentaries, special interest and (in)glorious oddities, but also carry blockbusters and key titles from Hollywood, and a great breadth of TV on DVD, which we are in the current process of expanding. We offer an extensive range of DVD titles imported exclusively from the USA (R1) and UK (R2) where the title has not been released on Region 4 (R4) in Australasia, so recommend use of a "multi-zone"-enabled DVD player or free VLC computer software to ensure compatibility with our entire range.

This diversity of exclusive titles continues to expand further through our recent Adopt-a-Movie programme, whereby customers can "adopt" any film of their choosing. We also sell new DVD and Blu-Ray titles, and carry a substantial range of out-of-print second-hand titles.

We don't offer a queue-based subscription service for Home Delivery. Currently we offer the Round-Trip Concession Card of 10 films pre-paid and delivered within a 12 month period, or you can choose to pay-per-order with an $8 return delivery charge. Our standard hire period is 7 days, but we have a grace period to allow for delivery delays and larger orders. Stay tuned for changes to the service as we further move towards courier delivery over ever-depleting postal services.

We invite you to join AroVideo and introduce yourself to a whole other world of film. So drop us a line by e-mail if anything needs clarifying. We look forward to being of service!
