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. Also note if you are selling something we ask you to offer to other members first. Links to private sales (including Trade Me posts) aren't accepted anymore and will be removed.

I am the Geekzone Robot and I am here to help. I am from the Internet. I do not interact. Do not expect other replies from me.

Buy yourself an Amazon Fire Stick (35 pounds) from Amazon UK, then ship it to NZ using Youshop. That will give you plenty of new viewing options. You may need to use a VPN or a friend in the UK to make the purchase, as they won't sell it to customers outside the UK. Once you have it, you'll need a geo-unblocking service like Unotelly.

Thanks for your replies guys. I found that it wont be of much use to buy chromecast, My bluray can play youTube wirelessly, so I will now work on hacking the firmware and add some new apps.
