How to Access New Zealand Streaming Services, Network Websites, and Apps from Anywhere in the World?
Most New Zealand streaming services, network websites, and apps restrict their content to users within New Zealand due to licensing agreements and copyright laws. This is possible through geolocation technology, which identifies users’ locations via their IP addresses. A Virtual Private Network, or VPN, can help you bypass these restrictions.
A VPN changes your perceived location by replacing your IP address with one from a server based in New Zealand. As a result, New Zealand streaming services recognize you as a viewer from New Zealand, allowing you to access your favorite Kiwi shows.
To watch New Zealand TV from anywhere in the world using Shellfire VPN, follow these steps:
- Download the Shellfire VPN software that’s compatible with your device.
- Install the Shellfire VPN software on your device.
- Open the application and select New Zealand as your target country and server location.
Can You Stream New Zealand TV on Devices That Don’t Have Native Support for VPNs?
Absolutely! With the Shellfire Box, you can enjoy Shellfire VPN on any device, even those without native VPN support. The Box functions as a Plug & Play VPN router, allowing you to watch New Zealand TV on your smart TV, gaming console, or Apple TV.
Comparing New Zealand and Global Content Libraries
The digital entertainment landscapes in New Zealand and other countries differ due to varying licensing agreements. Here are some distinct differences:
Streaming Platforms: Netflix and Amazon Prime
Global platforms like Netflix and Amazon Prime serve different content to New Zealand and international audiences:
- Netflix: While Netflix is available worldwide, the New Zealand version includes shows like “Short Poppies” and “The Almighty Johnsons” that might not be available in other countries.
- Amazon Prime: Amazon Prime New Zealand features unique local content, such as “The Brokenwood Mysteries” and “Outrageous Fortune,” which typically isn’t accessible outside New Zealand.
It’s important to note that we at Shellfire currently cannot guarantee the correct functioning of our service with Netflix due to potential changes in Netflix’s VPN detection and blocking mechanisms.
New Zealand Sports Programming
New Zealand broadcasts of rugby matches, in particular from the All Blacks, offer additional coverage, unique commentary, and special features not available globally.
New Zealand Network Websites and Apps
New Zealand network websites and apps, like TVNZ, Three, and Māori Television, offer exclusive content that’s typically inaccessible from outside New Zealand. Popular shows like “Seven Sharp” (TVNZ), “The Block NZ” (Three), and “Te Ao: Māori News” (Māori Television) are directly available on these platforms.
Here’s a handy reference table of some popular New Zealand TV channels that offer online streaming, both free and paid. Remember, accessing some of these services might require a VPN if you’re streaming from outside New Zealand.

Is it Legal to Stream New Zealand TV Globally?
