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

If you’ve been trying to watch showtime in New Zealand then you’ll probably have hit a brick wall and are missing out on tons and tons of content that is actually only available on the USA version of Showtime. I’ll show you how to bypass the geo restriction and watch Showtime USA in New Zealand.

Showtime 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 content.

Thankfully there is a simple way to unlock this content without making any changes to your home internet subscription. Believe it or not, Showtime 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 Hulu Plus content within New Zealand. However Showtime 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 Hulu can only block so many providers before they simply change their IP or relocate to a different datacenter.

How To Watch Showtime USA In New Zealand

The first step is to simply have a VPN.

The next step is to decide how you plan on watching Showtime 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 or Router level VPN.

I’ve used many different VPN providers over the last few years and the best VPN for watching Showtime USA is Pure VPN. Currently you can get a 2 year subscription from $2.88 per month and they offer both router level and standard VPN services.

Once you signup with Pure VPN 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 using the router level service you’ll need to follow the instructions on their knowledgebase to setup your router. 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 Showtime and you will now have full access.

Sometimes Showtime 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 Showtime 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.
