Sports streaming without borders

With a New Zealand VPN, sports blackouts will be the thing of the past! Watch rugby, cricket, or the races that WTF1 covers  no matter where you are in the world. 

Once you get a VPN for sports, you’ll just need to connect to a server in the country where the event is streaming, and voila! All the entertainment is within your reach.

Take your streaming shows with you

Take your streaming shows with you

Not up for sports? Then how about some premium TV and movies? If you’re travelling abroad, connect to a server in New Zealand to take live TVNZ, SkyGo, or Three Now content with you. 

Or would you prefer if the world came to your doorstep? Connect to the right server and you’ll be able to watch geo-blocked streaming libraries – or access entire services! That’s right, not only do you get to enjoy the best of Netflix and Amazon, but Hulu and Peacock as well!

Keep private data private

Sure, internet censorship isn’t wild in New Zealand. But did you know that the country belongs to the intelligence-sharing alliance Five Eyes (which includes the US)? If you’d rather your data was kept safe from snoopers, both foreign and domestic, get yourself a New Zealand VPN.

Stay safe on public Wi-Fi

If you’re going out or even traveling abroad, you want to be safe from the dangers of public Wi-Fi. Use a VPN, encrypt your traffic, and fool the hackers!

Crack down on ads

Surfshark VPN’s CleanWeb feature blocks ads before they even download on your device. This increases your internet speed and saves megabytes when on mobile data.

Bypass censorship

Did your travels take you to a country where you can’t access your favorite social media or news? Time to fire up VPN and blaze past the barriers!

Leave bandwidth throttling in the dust

If you encountered an ISP that slows down your connection when you’re sharing files, streaming video, or gaming online, don’t be afraid! With a VPN encrypting your data, the ISP won’t know when to throttle it.

Stop worrying about breaches

Data breaches happen all the time, with the biggest exposing hundreds of millions of records. With Surfshark Alert, you don’t have to follow the news about them - if your email shows up in a database of breached data, you’ll be notified to take action.

New Zealand VPN FAQ

How to set up a VPN for New Zealand?


  1. Find a paid VPN that keeps no logs, has servers in New Zealand, and offers a wide variety of additional features. Surfshark matches these criteria.
  2. Subscribe to the VPN. Paid VPNs are much better as they have no data or speed caps, can collect the funds to improve their software as well as servers, and have fewer incentives to collect (and sell) your data
  3. Download and install the VPN client. For example, Surfshark supports Windows, macOS, Linux for computers, Android and iOS for phones and tablets, and more. 
  4. Log into the app. Account email, password, you know the drill. 
  5. Connect to a VPN server! Most VPN clients offer the option to connect to the fastest server, which is usually the geographically closest one. You can also search the server list for the one that suits your needs. 

That’s it!

Are VPNs legal in New Zealand?

Yes, VPN use is legal in New Zealand.

What is a VPN connection?

A VPN connection is a protected tunnel that a VPN app establishes between your device and a VPN server. This connection is secure from prying eyes: if your internet service provider or anyone else in the chain between you and the VPN server would try to look into the browsing data, they would only see VPN use.

How does a VPN work?

A VPN works by having the app (the client) establish an encrypted connection tunnel to the VPN server via the internet. All the data sent from the device to the server is encrypted before the server decrypts it before forwarding it – and vice versa.
