Sorry guys, not gonna work out to be much cheaper.
Although it is
legal to use a VPN to access online media that is otherwise not available in New Zealand, so it'll be interesting to see how(if) they police it.
No way I'm going to test those waters though, with all those zeros behind that dollar sign. It would be up to the government rather than any company to chase up on this stuff as well, they're the ones who would stand to lose after all.
