I recently moved back to NZ from the UK and bought my PS3 with me. Is there any way to change the built in apps to NZ ones? eg changing BBC's iPlayer to TVNZ's ondemand etc.

Annoying that I can't watch Region 4 DVDs, thankfully Bluray isn't an issue...

yes, but unfortunately you'll have to create a new NZ region login, it'll then pickup from your internet connection that you are NZ based, and download the new apps

After they download, you can just delete the NZ account, and go back to using your UK account. TVNZ/BBC iPlayer/iTV will show side by side, however teh BBC/iTV won't play without a VPN, or unblockus service running




I have moved across the ditch.  Now residing in Melbourne as a VOIP/Video Technical Trainer/Engineer.
