Can any recommend a VPN provider with NZ servers, that is good for watching TVNZ OnDemand, TV3 NOW etc? I've tried Astrill but it seemed a bit slow overall, especially when using their US servers for Hulu.

Have you tried a DNS solution like unotelly? They have support for TVNZ and no need for the overhead of a VPN system.

I use IPVanish, and they have a VPN server located in Auckland, but also there's Unotelly, and they have DNS settings which allow TVnz on demand to work, but if you use the Overplay method, and you have a NZ based contact willing to share their Sky login details with you, you can watch live sports, and a selection of Live TV channels on their website.

are you using this when you're travelling overseas to watch NZ stuff? or to hide your IP while you're here?

Astrill has 10's of servers. Wordwide so you could use it in any state.

ScuL: I use overplay (DNS service) to watch TVNZ OnDemand in the UK


I am trying VPNSecure - I've created a fresh VM, set region and timezone to NZ, cleared cache and cookies, connected to the NZ VPN server, verified my IP shows up as from NZ and run a DNS leak test and TVNZ OD is still giving me a geo block error! Is there anything else I have to do?
