Can anyone confirm if I buy a Roku and set it up on a NZ IP can I use the NZ version of Netflix? I'm not interested in mucking around with global VPN setups, I'm happy using NZ Netflix but all the info I can find is about using US Netflix. I know it didn't work in the past but now Netflix is in NZ it should work?

Hi. I am using a Roku 3 right now and am watching NZ Netflix. So yes you can. I do have a USA Netflix account tho, but NZ is the one playing atm. I am trying to get the USA one working but am having trouble. But you should be good.

Just in case maybe someone else could confirm this, as I have a USA account.

Hope this helps

Hi, maybe you can help me. I have two U.S. Roku sticks which I have been using from Plex (love Plex!). But have finally decided to give Netfllix a go, but on both my Roku's I can't ever see the Netflix channel in the streaming options? Also if I try to add Netflix through the Roku Website I get a message saying adding channels through the website not available for my region at the moment?

Help..??

Try blocking these two addresses at router level 8.8.8.8 and 8.8.4.4

As per this thread http://www.geekzone.co.nz/forums.asp?forumid=151&topicid=159797

Should work fine after this.
