Easy Steps: How to Watch Disney Plus on Smart TV from Anywhere via VPN

Unfortunately, Smart TV does not offer a built-in VPN app. This is why you need to set up a VPN on your Smart TV via Smart DNS method. Follow these steps to watch Disney Plus on Smart TV from anywhere:

Activate Smart DNS via VPN

  1. Download and subscribe to a VPN on your Windows or macOS device (Surfshark is the best working Disney Plus VPN in 2020).
  2. Now head to https://account.surfshark.com/login and click on the “Smart DNS” option.
  3. At the bottom of the page, you will find a Smart DNS “Activate” button.
  4. Verify your IP address. Make sure that you are disconnected from VPN or proxy servers and that it is indeed the IP address of your Network. If the address is correct, select Activate.
  5. It will take some time to activate. After 2 minutes, if nothing happens, I suggest you refresh the page.
  6. Once the activation process is complete, you will get the email that the Smart DNS has been activated on that IP address (Make sure to choose the USA as your location).
  7. Now its time to set up the DNS addresses that you get in an email on your LG or Samsung Smart TV.
