Unfortunately, TVNZ does not support video playback via TV and console browsers.
For Smart TV users, we have standalone TVNZ apps for Samsung TV on its 2015 - 2018 models. For 2016 - 2018 and other makes it is also available via FreeviewPlus which comes built into select Smart TVs.
Other options include using Chromecast or Apple TV to access TVNZ content.
Note: We no longer support 2012, 2013 and 2014 Samsung Smart TV models as well as Blu-ray players.
