TechnoGuy001: iTunes...?
But as far as I know stuff only appears on there after it has aired on NZ TV. 


I'm also interested if there is a legal alternative like Hulu. 


No TV on NZ's iTunes store..

Wow really!?
I thought they had added it. Just had a look and your right, even there movies are kinda... way behind.

Damn well there goes that idea then.

What about Tivo?
Or do they only do Movies too?
oh no "download the latest movies and TV shows straight to your TiVo!"... but not really much help to those of us with no tivo. 


I guess when they say "latest" they mean after they have aired on NZ TV... (I don't know though, I don't have one)


 

TiVo NZ is even worse.  Old movies and very little TV programs.. 



 

And you have to wonder why TVNZ which owns part of tivo in NZ hasn't put ondemand content on it. Instead they have put it on a competing device, the PS3.

LookingUp: Back to the original topic, and just in case anyone from TV3 reads this, I must that my wife & I we very excited to discover that we'd recorded the tail end of a MIB movie instead of House the other night.

It really made our evening - thanks TV3.

I believe it has something to do with the "recession"... no money, no recent / good shows...

No, all blu-ray discs and systems have region coding built in. It is up to the content providers to make use of it. Up to 70% of blu-rays are region free (according to Wikipedia anyway).


But unlike DVD region coding, BluRay region coding is a bit harder to circumvent. I have an Oppo BDP80 BD player and the only way I have been able to make it region free (it's set to region A) is to install some hardware (admittedly no soldering required). The PS3 from what I know, has no way to overcome region coding, yet.

Now that the Internet file sharing law has been passed, it also means those of us who still like and want to watch those shows, are going to be somewhat more circumspect as we look for alternative sources for the content :-(

For those that haven't gone to the trouble of sourcing the programs from another means ... I've just noticed on the tv3 website that they mention these shows coming back on May 8th (probably when Masterchef has finished).
Cheers,
Tim

That's good to know. Hopefully TV3 will do a better job letting viewers know that House and The Good Wife are back from 8th May than they did letting viewers know that they were being taken off the schedules in the first place.
