Does the NZ tab have fixed price betting?

You guys do realise that IF you get found out, it's now a criminal offence to use a VPN to access a blocked site from Australia?
Should be o.k. if you're on holidays or travelling, but they can press charges or report you to the authorities.

Is it now illegal to use a VPN to deliberately bypass geo-restrictions to access overseas content? Was informed a little while back that it was not illegal.

Article is dated this year. I wouldn't go by it without checking other sources but it seems to say VPN usage is ok for bypassing geo-restrictions as of Feb.

I spend a lot of time overseas and there is only one tab and Betfair that I can access without any problem via VPN. all the others stopping even a login.
I have a server back home for use with the others.
Have to check on the legality though, regarding the tab I can access maybe different from netflix.

Just look up the regulations of the Interactive Gambling Act.
