Send private message reason why this would not work in NZ?

Apart from the UHF channels from AU, there is some 39 other channels that are delivered via internet, these include ESPN and ESPN2, Nat Geo x3, BBCx4, and other channels that look much better than Igloo. all for Au$15.

Plus looks like you get the VOD of 7,10, SBS and ABC from Australia.

AFAIK it isn't just as simple as SVOD, which would work with any geo-unblocking service.
I believe it works more like a full IPTV service, which means it will only work when connected to the specific ISP that sells it.

The biggest problem I can see is that even if it does work, all it gets you is Australian TV.
