TVNZ, short for Television New Zealand, is the national TV broadcaster in New Zealand. TVNZ OnDemand offers video-on-demand streaming of the most popular TV shows in New Zealand. If you live in New Zealand, you can watch My Kitchen Rules, Empire, Step Dave, Talking Dead, Wentworth, and Topp Country on TVNZ. If you’re a New Zealand expat living in Australia, UK, US, France, or Germany, you cannot watch TVNZ as it is geoblocked outside New Zealand. To unblock and watch your favorite shows on TVNZ, you have to bypass regional restrictions. That’s what Unlocator allows you to do. Sign up for a free Unlocator trial to access TVNZ abroad.

How To Unblock TVNZ Outside New Zealand Using Unlocator

TVNZ is geo-restricted outside New Zealand. With Unlocator, you can spoof your location online. Thus, TVNZ will think you’re actually located in New Zealand. To unblock TVNZ overseas, you have to create an Unlocator first. Then, configure Unlocator DNS on OS X, Ubuntu, Windows 10, Windows 7, Windows 8, Windows XP. Once done, you will be able to watch all shows and series available on TVNZ abroad. Unlocator does not change your IP address. You will still be able to access all local websites whilst using Unlocator.

In addition to New Zealand series, TVNZ also offers top American shows such as Empire, The Walking Dead, iZombie, Scandal, Grey’s Anatomy, The Big Bang Theory, and Scandal. Make sure you go to “Region Settings” in your Unlocator account and select the New Zealand region. You also have to change your timezone on your streaming device to New Zealand in order to watch TVNZ videos.
