Can I Watch 10 Play In NZ?
Unfortunately 10 Play is not available in New Zealand (yet anyway). But with the help of a premium Australian VPN provider, you can bypass this restriction.

What is a VPN?
A virtual private network (VPN) is a piece of software that runs in the background on your device and replaces your normal IP address with an overseas one.
With one click you can change your IP address to any country in the world. This makes it possible to unlock local content you usually couldn't access, fast and safe.
Additionally a VPN allows you to remain secure online, by protecting your real identity from prying eyes such as your ISP and local authorities.
VPN's don't track your usage either, allowing you to do whatever you like online.
There's many VPN providers out there, but we only recommend the best and most affordable for New Zealand residents and tourists.
