Hey, have you listed a price, location and how much shipping would be to other parts of New Zealand? Also if you are asking for a PM make sure your Privacy settings allow your account to receive PM otherwise people can't contact you.

I bought mine directly from Amazon. They ship these to NZ. I paid NZ$140 incl 3 day DHL courier from US.

The cheapest option which was $18 odd I think. They shipped it via DHL to my surprise.

I have been buying lots of things through Amazon and even paying for the slowest shipping still get stuff delivered in five days here.

And if you are buying anything on Amazon, remember to always use our Amazon Kindle order page so we can get a small commission.

Did you buy a plug converter for it here in NZ? Also, is the voltage correct?

Can the Roku 3 stream stuff from i.e your NAS?

I had to use a plug converter of course as it comes out with US prongs out of the box. The AC input states 120V on the PSU but I remembered watching an unboxing of Roku 3 on youtube and the person stating his PSU mentioned 120VAC ~ 230VAC. I felt brave, plugged it in and it has been going fine. I searched online and turns out the new stock of Roku 3 states 120VAC but the model number of PSU matches of the PSU that stated 230VAC as well. Roku has prob done this to scare overseas buyers off I guess.

I use Plex app on Roku 3 and Plex app on my NAS to stream stuff off it. You can also load Plex on your PC in case you do not have a NAS to stream stuff off. Works beautifully.

ps - Prob best to continue talking about Roku 3 in the below thread.

Not at home right now but the PSU model number of the 120VAC unit (I have this) and 120VAC ~ 230VAC PSU (first batch of Roku 3 owners have this)is same. Working fine for me. No smoke whatsoever. Owners in UK, Australia and South Africa reported no issues either with their 120VAC PSU when plugged into their countries.

So just wanting to confirm.. Dishworld works with unotelly? Because i tried Unblockus and it didnt work. I therefore made the assumption i would have to buy a vpn and have been using one since. But this meant i lose a lot of speed.

Unotelly doesnt slow down the internet right?

Yep Unotelly works fine with Dishworld IPTV. Used it last night again to watch IPL. Netflix, Hulu Plus and Crackle all broadcast content in HD.

btw I hope you know that Dishworld IPTV only has Asian/Indian/Middle Eastern channels?

You can signup to the 1 month trial for Dishworld IPTV which will end on 10th April. Signup to the 8 day unotelly trial. Download the Dishworld IPTV PC app. Do the DNS setup via unotelly and you will be able to stream Dishworld IPTV channels via the app.

SD channels stream at fixed 2mbps. There is 1 HD channel which goes to max 3.5mbps.

Hi mate,

Yes i already have dishworld :)

I am currently running it via vpn though and its quite slow. It buffers every now and then and really often when i am downloading.

Does this happen to you?

Once you switch dishworld on, does yours keep changing quality of the video or does it stay fixed? :P

Stays fixed. SD channels stream constantly at 2mbps and the single HD channel streams at 3.5mbps. The first 30 seconds, image is pixelated and grainy. It's checks your connection and adjusts accordingly. In the roku app and the desktop PC app, I have set my connection limit for Dishworld IPTV app to use unlimited bandwidth.
