I'm trying to use TVNZ on demand and I tried using Hola to watch some programs, but nothing happened when I pressed the play button. After reloading the page a few times and then after pressing play, I got the following message: "Access to this resource is forbidden by access policy." Is there a better VPN to use, preferably one that is free or has a free trial?

Do not ever use Hola. They sell your bandwidth.

Use DNS4ME.

The message is still showing up even after I've started the trial? Is there something I'm doing wrong?

Have you set up the DNS settings? Or have you just started the free trial and done nothing else?

Ive been using NordVPN for the past few years. I liked it so much i bought a 2-3 year subscription while they were having a sale. They seem to have a node in every country so most content can be accessed.
Some nodes are basically unusable, but they tend to have multiple nodes in each country to deal with overloading.

Their UI is really nice, especially on Mac OS, it integrates seamlessly.

Id recommend doing a trial before subscribing tho, some sites are a complete miss and dont work with this and other VPN services, and you won’t really know unless you test it.

TunnelBear is ok, but I've always used getflix.

 

Always a good idea to have another look at these things and see if something new/better has come along.

+1 for Getflix. Great tech support and there isn't a single service I want to use it cannot make available for me.
