How to set-up Twitch in New Zealand

16 Oct 13

So what does a gamer do when they've finished fragging on COD?

Why not watch someone else doing it! is a streaming channel where you can watch multiplayer games such as World of Warcraft, League of Legends, Call Of Duty and a range of other games.

So you can watch it on your computer, but how do you watch it on your TV?

The easiest way is to plug in your computer to the TV, but c'mon, we're too geeky to just do it the simple way.

There's a couple of ways, they both require a bit of technical knowledge, but here's a few ways to do this.

So you'll probably have a console. Twitch is only available on the Xbox 360 with an Xbox Gold account in the US.

Using our first guide, get your virtual Visa account from Entropay, address from Youshop and UnoTelly account (with UnoVPN).

  1. Xbox Live requires a valid US IP to download certain apps, but UnoDNS does not change your IP; so using UnoDNS will result in an error message.

  2. Using UnoVPN share it from your computer to the Xbox using this guide

  3. Check you can access the internet

  4. Change your system locale to "United States" in System Settings

  5. Register for a Free (silver) Xbox Live account and set your Country to United States

  6. Upgrade the account to a Gold account (US$60 a year)

  7. Go to apps and download the Twitch app

  8. Watch away

Another way is to use Serviio which can stream to any DLNA device. Here's a great guide to setting up Serviio, you then use a plugin which will allow you to stream your or streams. This guide will help you set it up.

Any other recommendations for getting your account on your device?
