Hi everyone
I purchased a Vontar TV streaming box from 1-day sale. It would not give me access to my Netflix account initially but I found a fix for that. Now all I want to do is download the NZ apps for our on demand channels but everyone I search not one of them comes up. Is there a fix for this please?

Hi there
I think I've set it up correctly but not sure if I need to add the proxy settings or add a static IP etc?

If it's running official Android TV the only NZ specific app available is Lightbox, which may have to be sideloaded. I've tried using the official Android apps on my box, however they are not optimised at all. The only other options are chromecasting it to the box or using Kodi + the addons from he who shall not be named (Google TVNZ Ondemand kodi). As Sky is planning to launch an Android box with more NZ services on it, this will hopefully change in the future.
