The quick answer to your question:
- Yes, Unlocator does unblock ThreeNow
ThreeNow is one of the top live and on-demand streaming platforms in New Zealand. This catch-up service lets you watch your content from Three, ThreeLife, as well as sister channel Bravo. Although the channel is designed for Kiwis, there is plenty of Australian, British, American and other international TV content within its catalog. You can find the likes of Law and Order: SVU, Blue Bloods, Chicago Med, and Hawaii Five-O in its huge library. However, access to the channel outside New Zealand is strictly prohibited. The licenses they have on most shows are specifically for viewing in New Zealand. Therefore, in order to watch the channel abroad, you must make use of Unlocator VPN and Smart DNS service.
Watch ThreeNow Outside New Zealand With Unlocator Smart DNS
Upon viewing a video on ThreeNow while abroad, this error message will pop up:
“This video is restricted from playing in your current geographic region”
To circumvent the geo-restrictions imposed on the channel, you need to fake your online location. Unlocator lets you do exactly that by altering the URLs responsible for identifying your current whereabouts. This, of course, leads you to appear as if you’re browsing from New Zealand. As a result, ThreeNow will qualify you as a Kiwi resident and grant you full access to its streaming library.
Unlocator only tampers with URLs, which means that your IP address remains the same. So, you while streaming ThreeNow, you’ll still have access to your local channels. Furthermore, Smart DNS doesn’t encrypt your online traffic, which means that your connection speed doesn’t drop one bit.
All you have to do is free Unlocator trial and follow these setup guides based on the platform your streaming on. After setting up Unlocator DNS on your device, head over to your Unlocator account and click on ‘Region Settings’. Under ‘Region Packages’, select the NZ Package.
Once you’re done, you’ll be able to watch ThreeNow regardless of where you may be around the world.
Unblock ThreeNow Abroad Using Unlocator VPN
Unlocator VPN is used on a daily basis to protect your privacy and unblock TV services from around the world. The difference here is the security approach of the service. This one does change your IP address, so you have to disconnect in order to watch your country’s channels again. However, the process with Unlocator VPN is very easy.
Just sign up for a free Unlocator trial and install the application on Android, iOS, Mac or Windows. Once done, connect to a New Zealand server in Unlocator’s list. Upon connecting, you’ll obtain an IP address in that region, thus you’ll have full access to exclusive material in the country. In other words, you can watch ThreeNow wherever you are across the globe.
