Want to access iFlix in New Zealand but can't due to geo restrictions? Today we'll show you how to bypass and unlock the channel so you can stream right to your TV via Roku, Chromecast or other devices such as Android and iOS.
iFlix is a Malyasian based Netflix alternative that offers a wide range of movies, TV shows and local content across a wide variety of categories such as crime, action, romance, drama, horror, Hollywood, Bollywood, sports and more.
Additionally they cover sports such as One Championship, motorsports, superbikes and soccer leagues such as the premier league highlights.
What Can I Watch On iFlix?
iFlix offers a wide variety of different content from kids channels, through to the latest movies and TV shows. There's a large number of sports shows, as well as content in various languages such as Chinese, Thai, Anime and Bollywood.
iFlix has focused on emerging markets, whereas their main competitor Netflix has targeted the main markets. This might explain why it's not available in NZ yet.
How To Access iFlix In New Zealand?
Technically you can't watch Fandor in New Zealand as it's been blocked due to geo licensing and geo-blocking. That means if you try and signup on their platform using your normal internet connection, you'll get an 'Access Denied' page.
You can use a VPN to change your geographical location and unlock Fandor instantly. The service is only available to USA residents so you'll need to use a USA VPN server.
How To Watch iFlix With a VPN?
You can unlock the content using any VPN, but they must offer a Malaysian server for best results. After months of research, the best VPN in our opinion is PureVPN.
You can signup for $10.95 (1 Month) or $2.91/mo on a longer subscription.
Step 1: Purchase Your Subscription
You need to visit the official PureVPN website and purchase a package. You can checkout using credit/debit cards, Paypal, Bitcoin or Alipay.
Step 2: Download VPN Client
There's software apps for nearly every device out there, including web browsers, android, iOS, Windows, Mac OS, Linux, routers, Playstation, Xbox and Fire TV.
Download the software and login with your username and password.
Step 3: Connect to Malaysian Server
Turn on the VPN by clicking the start button. Now change the country to 'Malaysia' and within 15-30 seconds your VPN will connect.
Your internet usage is now being routed via a server in Malaysia. You can now access many geo-blocked websites previously unavailable in New Zealand.
Step 4: Watch iFlix
Visit iFlix and you'll now be able to signup. You'll now be able to live stream the content or watch on demand, or download for future viewing. You'll also be able to watch any other free to air Malaysian and worldwide channels and content that you previously couldn't.
You can disconnect from the VPN software once you're finished. Then reconnect whenever you want for as long as your subscription is valid.
Other Ways To Use a VPN?
Once you've watched the race, what else would you need your VPN for?
Most people use one to protect their identity online. When in use your Internet Service Provider can no longer track your usage. This is beneficial for torrenting or accessing secure sites such as your bank.
A VPN keeps hackers and thieves out, as your data is encrypted. This is especially helpful when using public WiFi networks that are unsecure and can be compromised, leaking your details to criminals.
The most common things to do is to unlock geo-blocked content such as watching Netflix USA instead of NZ, watching free TV in Australia, watching live sports events that aren't available locally and so much more.
A VPN might be the greatest invention ever and unlocks the world that would otherwise be locked down due to an outdated business model of buying and selling usage rights, rather than a free market.
