Before you attempt any changes on your TV, please consider that:
KiwiTim: What I have done to get two different regions for the Samsung smart hub is simply buy a Samsung smart blu-ray. Has a smart hub that is much the same as the TV's smart hub. I have one smart hub set to USA and one set to UK. The cheapest Samsung Smart Blu-ray is $149. Works for me.
shk292: Why not watch Netflix via the Apple TV and TVNZ directly on the TV?
KiwiTim: Personally, I don't see much attraction in keeping a Samsung Smart Hub tuned into NZ. The offerings are pitiful. The very best option out there for the Samsung Smart Hub is selecting UK. Of course there is the BBC iPlayer, which is the best free streaming platform out there, then there is ITV and 4oD that both have some good shows. BBC News, France24, BBC Sport and lots of other stuff. Of course Netflix, HuluPlus and Amazon are there as well. This selection makes the USA option look rather pitiful also, as there is very little free content coming from the USA.
