Can anyone tell me if a T8 will work in NZ please? Currently with friends in the UK and it is great for streaming movies and tv series. Our broadband in NZ is Spart 4G Rural broadband.

Depending on what you want to stream through it, you may need a dns or VPN service such as unotelly or dns4me; to watch things like iplayer, itvplayer, etc.

Thank you. Are they easy for a non-geek to set up?

It should work. 

Both are equally easy to some degree.

DNS services such as UnoTelly and Unblock-US are easier than VPN in some cases, but you still will need to block some servers if using Netflix (which may need some configuration on router).

VPNs will be ok to setup depending on the OS on the box and might get around having to configure router to block those servers.

Mind you, on a 4G connection your usage might get a bit over the limit...

Thank you. I think I will buy one here and see how setting it up goes when we are back in NZ. Will shout out if I need advice from here!
We have an 80GB monthly data allowance but will keep an eye on our usage.
