    It's because SBS is in Australia and does not service NZ.

    Since its Aussie based, you more than likely need some sort of VPN to trick the stations into thinking you are in Aussie, tried to log in to watch, and needed to create an account as well. So looks like someone (your Friends) may have some sort of work around geo blocking.

    Both Freeview Plus and Freeview FV require a constant Internet connection to function,

    SBS has live streams which are available without geoblocking if you use the direct URL.
    Other person needs to ask their friends how they are doing it if they are using streaming.
    NZ Digital TV Forum, Freeview NZ , etc
