Cool, just watched the most recent Big Bang Theory on our antique PS3. No problem with Unotelly DNS being loaded. It was a much better user experience than TVNZ On Demand via browser on the HTPC. The quality was no better but quite watchable. Didn't have to keep remembering to get the mouse cursor off the screen, and it was quick and easy to navigate. For a free service, pretty good. I'll be using it for TVNZ On Demand from now on. Quite a versatile streamer, that old console. It's given it a new lease of life.

Yes the PS3 is still going incredibly well despite being ancient now.

I sent TVNZ a query regarding the slight problems I described earlier.

Surprisingly, I got a response.

Thanks for your email and we’re sorry to hear that you’ve had trouble on the new app!
First and foremost, are you still getting this “not connected” error? We’re aware of this issue, and we’ve been working to tidy it up.

We’ve also currently got our adds withdrawn from the service as we had an issue with one rogue ad in particular causing some problems, so we have removed all to triage the issue.
We should have that all fixed up soon too!

Currently, we can say we are investigating a number of different initiatives, some of which relate to quality and personalisation.
As for Chromecast, we can’t say when we will be able to support this currently.

We apologise for any inconvenience!

Kindest regards,
The TVNZ OnDemand team

So looks like there are more improvements on the way.
