Has anyone had any experience with there isp in new zealand blocking kodi addons i could be wrong but any addon that is used to stream media dose not have any links.

Should probably have read the FUG before posting.. GeekZone is not the place for discussions about the sort of Kodi addons I suspect you are talking about.

A fine line here. Be careful on next steps.

Without trying to break any terms and conditions of the site, my question is regardless of the services these add-ons provide, do ISPs in New Zealand block these services or have they started to in the last month? As when I use these services they do not work all of a sudden unless I use a VPN.

Blocking content of any kind other than that mandated by law is not typical of most ISP's in NZ

The likely scenario here is you have an add-on that is pulling a stream from a legitimate source and it therefore has geo-blocking on their end.


Like how you can't watch TVNZ out of NZ, pretty much everyone else does the same thing.


I don't know of any NZ ISP's that actively filter content (except for DIA mandated stuff of course for those who are members.)
