I think you might be out of luck. If your tablet doesn't have Android 4.4 or greater it won't support Chromecast screen casting, and the (Samsung only) TVNZ app doesn't have a Chromecast option. I just tried on my Galaxy Note 10.1 which is still suck on Jellybean and no upgrade in sight. By selling out to Samsung, TVNZ have effectively lost a chunk of their market.

The only solution I've found is to cast via Chrome via a PC.

tvnz does not allow HDMI out, having the same problem using miracast, so the the problem is not you, but them

Or Samsung, also having rights to Ligthbox have effectively just gained a chunk of the market. If I was to buy a Smart TV for myself I would only consider a Samsung due to the ease of having the apps built in, and the TVs are no more expensive than similar brands.

you could try a Samsung blu ray player which gives any TV Samsung smart apps.
