By order of the Ministry of Truth, Netflix has always been available in Oceania.

The above may be conjecture, deliberate paraphrase, or outright bullshit.

Wasn't it only available if you accessed it via a VPN?

Pretty much. Kiwis have using VPNs for some time. Earlier this year, a couple of smaller ISPs even started offering their own VPN service, complete with instructions on how to fool the sign up process (which requires a US address).

While offering the VPN is legal, the other part is highly dubious at best, and probably breaks a couple of Netflix's T&Cs. It's believed that, when it does become available here, it will only offer a fraction of the content available in the States (for rights reasons) and they'll finally crack down on the VPN viewers, forcing people to watch the local version.

In the meantime, we've just had one NZ-based alternative launch (Lightbox), with another going live 'later this year' that is basically an OnDemand version of the only current cable-like network (Sky TV). The latter comes from a company that bought up the exclusive rights in NZ to Game of Thrones, then created an all new premium channel to air it (costing $10/month on top of the existing ~$50/month subscription).

Is it any wonder so many people down here prefer to download their TV.

While I cannot guarantee how big the NetFlix library will be for you guys, I can certainly ask someone who may be willing to give me a rough approximation. But I make no promises.

The Ministry of Love does so much to make being in touch worthwhile. Cool

Also I sometimes like audiobooks when gaming. ADHD is like a superpower!
