Torrenting "banned" in NZ - how do i get around this?!!!


Recommended Posts

Hi guys

Hopefully you can help.. i'm not as smart as I wish i was when it comes to torrents. New Zealand government being the geniuses they are have just bought in a law that means rights holders of content can prosecute you through your isp if they find you downloading. So i'm wondering what my options are in getting around this.. ie can I set up utorrent client> to through a proxy server perhaps to hide my IP? Or any other suggestions? Please email me or post here if anyone has any ideas... cos, well.. I just cant wait the year or so it takes for our useless broadcasters here to get shows on air after they've shown in the US and UK...grrr!! Any help for this kiwi would be HUGELY appreciated :)

Google vpn providers / services, compare them and ask around on related forums - here's a few hits:




All you need is to set up an account and route your connection through their servers, pretty much like with wifi: http://pureinfotech.com/2011/05/11/how-to-set-up-a-vpn-connection-in-windows-7/, but they should be able to help you with it, anyway.

Also, If they have servers in different countries you can choose the exit server and get country specific content (eg: youtube, tv channels, etc.) ;).
