Are you missing home while living overseas in Australia? If so you might miss your favorite foods, friends and family but one thing you can definitely continue to watch kiwi TV. Let us show you how to watch New Zealand TV online in Australia.
If you’ve ever tried to watch TVNZ On Demand or One On Demand you’ll probably have hit a geo restriction wall that says you must be living in the country to access their streams.
Fortunately you can appear as if you’re in New Zealand by using a simple geo block workaround in the form of a VPN. Short for Virtual Private Network it allows you to tunnel your internet connection through another country to make it appear you’re somewhere you’re not.
Currently using a VPN for geo unlocking is perfectly legal in New Zealand so fear not, you’re not breaking the law. Very few countries prohibit the use of VPN’s so you’ve got nothing to worry about.
You may have used a VPN at work to authenticate on your internal network. It works the same way and will ensure your identity remains a secret online too.
How To Watch New Zealand TV Online In Australia
The first thing you need is a New Zealand VPN provider. There are many VPN providers out there but you need to ensure they offer a server located somewhere in New Zealand. Most don’t actually have local servers so they are pointless.
Next you need to ensure the provider offers an application for your chosen device. If you’re using a Windows laptop, mac, phone, tablet, android phone, Blackberry, iPhone, Smart Televisions or just a standard browser such as Google Chrome, Firefox or Safari there are apps available to download and change your geo graphical location within minutes.
You can follow these steps:
After testing PureVPN.com over the last few years we can confirm it works with all major streaming platforms including TVNZ, 3Now, One on Demand, Netflix, Spark Sports, Amazon Prime, Choice TV, Quickflix, Crunchyroll and Sky sports.
Access International Content Too
One of the awesome features is the ability to change to any country in the world and unblock their local content. Want to watch cricket in South Africa, the BBC iPlayer in the UK or Netflix USA? Well now you can with a premium VPN subscription.
