PoHq: Never tried unotelly but I find unblock US faultless.

There is even an iPhone app which let's you switch Netflix regions with one click.

Unotelly also now has a mobile app to change Netfix regions easily (Android here)

All the options on their setup website can be left as is unless you want access to specific services.

Make sure to tick the TVNZ option to get TVNZ ondemand of course

semigeek: Unblock-US for the region switching capability.. 

+ 1 on this - and Unblock provides excellent, no-nonsense support. If they don't 'support' a particular service and have no plans to do so, they will simply come out and say just that so that there is clarity. Eg: Netflix 3D outside the USA.

I was puzzled why that wasn't working. Pretty sure I can live without it!

I'm another +1 for Unblock-US. Flawless service so far, really happy with it. Used almost solely for Netflix and sometimes Hulu+, also used to trick my TV into enabling the US-centric smart apps so I've got an on-device Netflix client (which admittedly is not a great version).

My 0.02c

check out:
Its similar to Unblock-us as it is just a DNS service.

Is currently free but netflix access will be a paid addon soon.
something like 12usd a year i think.

Thanks for all the replies. I've bitten the bullet and am giving UnBlock US a go. All good.

One other thing. I've also downloaded the UnBlock iphone app but am a bit confused. The app enables you to search for all the movies in all regions covered by UnBlock Us. What I cant work out is what streaming network are the movies on eg Netflix, Hulu Plus or some other. The app doesn't seem to say.

Can anyone shed some light on this.

thanks again

If it's the same App I have then it's just a Netflix region switcher. The app will tell you which region of Netflix the show or movie is on and you can then switch to that region. The app has nothing to do with any other streaming site aside from Netfix.

Hi, just want to give a thumbs up for Unotelly, easy to set up and met the needs i required, IPlayer etc but also NOWtv for sky uk..bought a day pass for 9.99pounds not quite knowing what i was in for, got 24 hours faultless streaming of all 6 UK skysport channels, (there are other packages available), the only drawback is to sign up you need Uk credit card and address to register which im lucky enough to have. Those ex pats out there...better alternative to Premier league pass, excellent picture quality.

YadaMe: Ozzie site with lower cost. Still on the trial.

Yeah, i'm on the Getflix trial as well... working really well so far.

I just noticed they added a local DNS server in Auckland as well...
