Got a Firestick device and wondering how to set up Disney Plus on Firestick? If yes, then this blog is for you.
In this blog, we have shared steps to stream your favorite Disney Plus content on your Firestick device from anywhere. Wondering how? All you require is to get a VPN for Disney Plus. So, without any further delay, let’s dive in:
If you reside in a country where Disney Plus is officially available, jump quickly to the steps to install Disney Plus on Firestick.
However, if you are residing in an unsupported country and trying to access Disney+, the following geo-restriction error will appear on your screen:
“Sorry, Disney+ is not available in your country.”
However, with the help of a VPN, you can access Disney+ on your Firestick from anywhere globally. Here is how you can do it:
If you see a message that prevents you from getting the app due to geo-restrictions, install a VPN on your device through the following instructions:
Note: Disney Plus subscription does not come with a VPN. This means without a Disney+ subscription, using a VPN service is of no use as it won’t allow you to access the service since it’s not free.
How a VPN Allows You to Access Disney Plus on Your Firestick Device From Anywhere?
The internet you are using has your location’s local IP address. And to follow the rules and regulations of content distributions, streaming services like Disney+ use an IP tracker to block all the users who try to access their content from an unsupported country.
So when you try to access Disney+ on your Firestick device in a country where Disney Plus is not available, it triggers the IP trackers that immediately block you from accessing the content.
This is where a VPN service comes to the rescue. With the use of a VPN, you can hide your local IP with the one where Disney+ is available such as the USA. So when you connect to the US server and try to access Disney+, it tricks the IP tracker that you are somewhere in the USA and thus allows you to access the content.
