The freeview site implies the tv should have an app :
FREEVIEW ON DEMAND IS AVAILABLE ON ALL 2015+ SMART TVS*
Connect your Smart TV to broadband internet and a working TV antenna to enable it.

If you're using an older TV and don't want to upgrade just yet, just connect your TV to a set top box or recorder with Freeview On Demand.

ALSO NOW AVAILABLE AS A SMART TV APP!
Perfect for you if you don't have an aerial / satellite dish connected to your TV. Just hook up your 2017+ Samsung, LG or Panasonic Smart TV to the internet & hit Freeview On Demand from the Smart Hub / Apps Home on your TV (download it free from the apps store on your Smart TV if it's not already auto-installed).

But assuming the above is wrong, you could try this:

I don't own either, but I think I have seen that the Vodafone tv box is better. You don't have to be a VF customer.
Check out the threads for the dish tv box and the Vodafone box elsewhere on geekzone....

 

EDIT: Fix links

$60, get a Chromecast and cast it from your phone. Its how I watch TVNZ on demand, and works perfectly well.

 

Bonus is, you can cast just about anything from all the other phones and computers in the house (on the same Wifi network). Youtube, TV3 on demand, Netflix, Lightbox, Amazon, Disney, any random tab in a Chrome browser, etc etc...

This is definitely the easiest way - I either Chromecast in the bedroom or Airplay to the Apple TV in the lounge...either one works just fine
