Looking for a way to watch Disney Plus on Apple TV from anywhere abroad? If yes, then this blog is for you.

In this blog, I will tell you how you can access Disney Plus on Apple TV from anywhere via a VPN. So without any further delay, let’s get started:

Disney+ offers a dedicated app for all the major streaming devices, including Apple TV, Firestick, Smart TV, Roku, iOS, Android, Xbox, PS4, and Firestick.

However, as of now, the service is only available in few countries, including America, UK, Canada, Netherlands, Australia, New Zealand, Italy, Spain, France, Austria, Puerto Rico, Denmark, Ireland, India, and Switzerland.

This means if you are living outside these countries, you can’t access the Disney Plus on your Apple TV because of content geo-restrictions.

“Sorry, Disney+ is not available in your country.”
