How To Watch Netflix USA In New Zealand? Step-By-Step

If you’ve been watching Netflix in New Zealand then you’ll probably be missing out on tons and tons of content that is actually only available on the USA version of Netflix. I’ll show you how to bypass the geo restriction and watch Netflix USA in New Zealand within minutes.

Netflix is great but like movie release dates and TV licensing they can’t show the same content in every country they offer their services. This is a real pain especially for consumers in New Zealand as we miss out on the good shows!

Thankfully there is a simple way to unlock this content without making any changes to your Netflix subscription. Believe it or not, Netflix simply looks at the IP address or the DNS address of your connection to determine which content you can or can’t see.

Fortunately for us this allows us to bypass the filter and unlock all the Netflix content within New Zealand. However Netflix are catching on and blocking most VPN providers and companies that offer geo unblocking services.

It’s a game of cat and mouse with VPN providers ultimately winning as Netflix can only block so many providers before they simply change their IP or relocate to a different datacenter.

How To Watch Netflix USA In New Zealand

The first step is to simply have a Netflix account.

The next step is to decide how you plan on watching Netflix USA. If you’re using a smart TV or android box, Mibox or something similar then you need to purchase a VPN service. If you’re using a Roku you need to use Smart DNS.

I’ve used many different VPN providers over the last few years and the best VPN for watching Netflix USA is Ivacy. Currently you can get a 5 year subscription for only $60 (only $1 per month, crazy).

Once you signup with Ivacy you simply download their VPN app to your device. If you’re using a smart TV or android box like me, go to the app store and download their free app. Alternatively if you’re using something like the Fire TV you can sideload their app into your device. If you’re on a laptop, mac, desktop or tablet download the app they provide.

Next login to your account, connect to a USA server.

Now reload your Netflix and you will now have the USA content.

Sometimes Netflix will see you are using the VPN or block the content. Unfortunately this is an ongoing issue and the VPN provider will resolve the problem within a few hours. Like I said earlier, cat and mouse game but if you really want Netflix USA it’s pretty much your only option, or a green card 😉

I'm an adventurer, traveller and thrill seeker who loves to explore the beautiful country of New Zealand. When I'm not writing articles for Ki-Wi you'll find me driving jet boats, hiking and riding my motorcycle. New Zealand is an amazing country to live, work, travel and explore.
