I'm an ex-pat kiwi living, mostly, in Australia. Is there any relatively easy way to get my NZ TV news fix over the internet without transgressing anybody's rules. Or is that what I might have to do.
Its a pain when somebody from 'home' sends me a link to a news item or a program they've watched, but all I get is a message such as "This video is not available to viewers in your location". And the same applies from this side of the ditch. Family at home would love to watch some of the programs that have been on here, and which are available on demand over an internet connection here. Any help or guidance appreciated.

Thanks.

Try the add on media hint for firefox or Chrome

try something like hola for a browser then you may be able to get access to tv3 or tvnz. Or check out unblockus.com to see if they suport both services. I know they do support tvnz ondemand (via browser)

I was under the impression the likes of Unblockus and the Hola extension only worked for US-based services.

For something NZ-based, try a VPN connection back through NZ. Looks like Overplay.net has NZ-based servers you can use! :)

NJope, all sorts. UK, France, Denmark, Australia, US, and the odd NZ service.

Pretty Extensive list. TVNZ is listed, not TV3/Prime/Four.

I believe https://www2.unotelly.com supports NZ's TV channels.

Using Hola,. you can connect to anywhere you want., and select where you will be "connecting" from.,.,.,

Why won't TV On Demand suffice?

Perhaps you will be good enough to explain?
The original question outlines why I asked.

Thanks for the previous answers.

I assume it would, but you need to be in NZ or have a proxy\VPN with NZ IP address for it to work.
