The quick answer to your question:
- Yes, Unlocator does unblock TVNZ
TVNZ is the national TV broadcaster in New Zealand. TVNZ OnDemand offers video-on-demand streaming of the most popular TV shows in the country. 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 Kiwi expat living in Australia, UK, US, France, or Germany, you cannot access the service due to geo-restrictions. To unblock and stream your favorite shows while overseas, you have to bypass regional restrictions. That’s what Unlocator VPN and Smart DNS allow you to do.
Unblock TVNZ Outside New Zealand Using Unlocator Smart DNS
Whenever you try to view a video on the channel while abroad, this geo-error message will pop up:
“Whoops! Looks like you’re trying to watch from outside of New Zealand. Our videos are only available to watch within New Zealand due to rights issues. “
TVNZ is geo-restricted outside New Zealand. With Unlocator, you can spoof your location online. Thus, the streaming service will think you’re actually located in its region. To unblock TVNZ overseas, you have to create an Unlocator first. Then, configure Unlocator DNS on your streaming device by following these setup guides. Once done, you will be able to watch all the shows and series available on TVNZ wherever you are. Unlocator does not change your IP address, which means that you will still be able to access all local websites whilst using its services.
Watch TVNZ Abroad With Unlocator VPN
Another approach is to install Unlocator’s VPN. You can find clients for Android, iOS, Mac or Windows. When you sign up for a free Unlocator trial and launch the application on your platform, you’ll be able to select a US server and connect to it. This will grant you an American IP address and allow you to use TVNZ OnDemand service despite being abroad.
With Unlocator VPN, you’ll be rerouting your traffic through the server you connect to. As a result, you’ll spoof your location and appear to be browsing straight from that region. In addition, Unlocator VPN encrypts all your traffic, which means that your data will be safe if you ever connect to public Wi-Fi networks at hotels, airports, cafes, and the likes.
Both Smart DNS and VPN are included in a single Unlocator trial, so you can try out both and see what fits you the best.
In addition to the New Zealand series, TVNZ also offers top American shows such as Empire, The Walking Dead, iZombie, Scandal, Grey’s Anatomy, and The Big Bang Theory, 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.
