New Zealand Internet Service Provider Orcon is upgrading its Global Mode Service, allowing users to switch between regions and watch content from different Netflix catalogues in the US and UK.
Orcon launched Global Mode in August last year, which is a free and automatic service for Orcon customers that allows Kiwis to access global streaming websites like Netflix.
“With the rise of smart devices, and smorgasbord of streaming options available, Kiwis are rethinking the way they use broadcast TV,” says Mike Shirley, GM, Orcon.
“We want to give customers access to even more online content and the Global Mode region-switcher will make it even easier for Netflix users to switch to different regions to view the content they want.”
The Global Mode region switching feature will launch in March free-of-charge to Orcon customers.
