YAY!

I can finally stream South Park online without jumping through hoops! Now all I need to do is ditch this crappy connection.  If only this feature was around when I was close to a cabinet :(

Yeah, it's pretty awesome streaming episodes in HD without a VPN.

Last night I was able to make a Netflix account, make a us iTunes account to download the Netflix app to my iPad and watch a movie all from my nonjailbroken iPad.

I will see if I can get my apple tv 2 working tonight.

Complain to slingshot? :P


Do you have an AirNZ airpoints card? If you use the USD 'wallet' on them, then they seem to present as a US credit card (works for Hulu)

I use an ANZ Platinum Visa card for both Netflix and Hulu with no problem.

Not sure why ANZ is any different from BNZ. I do provide a US address though.

I meant a OneSmart card, they are prepaid and come with AirNZ airpoints membership. There is a $50 fee to join, free after that. You might be able to join for free with the code "JOINAP".

Long discussion somewhere in New Zealand about a website where you can buy prepaid Visa cards that work well with Hulu and Netflix. It's completely off topic.

See here, the article starts by showing how to set a custom DNS (already done for you by Slingshot) and moves onto a key combination to change countries. Allow up to half an hour for it to update after changing.

Warning, you will loose access to the TVNZ onDemand app (haha)
