Quick Guide: How to Watch Disney Plus on Xbox from Anywhere via VPN

Sadly, Xbox does not offer a built-in VPN app to use. This is why first you need to smart DNS via VPN. Then set up on Xbox to stream Disney+ from anywhere around the world.

Follow these steps to watch Disney Plus on Xbox from anywhere via VPN:

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.
  7. Now its time to set up the DNS addresses that you get in an email on your Xbox.

Setup Smart DNS on Xbox and Watch Disney+

  2. In the “Settings” menu, select “Network” and then “Network settings.”
  3. Now select “Advanced settings” > click “DNS settings” > then select “Manual” to configure the DNS addresses.
  4. Now you will have to fill in the IP addresses of DNS servers that you can see on your profile page after activating smart DNS.
  5. Enter both primary and secondary IP addresses.
  6. Once you enter the IP addresses, you will see the entered DNS addresses active.
  7. Now set your location to the US. To do so, go to “Settings” > “Systems” > then “Language & location” and change it to the USA.

Note: VPN does not let you watch Disney Plus on Xbox free if you don’t have its subscription. VPN allows you to access Disney+ content on your Xbox in an unsupported location. However, if you don’t have Disney+ subscription, read my ultimate Disney Plus VPN guide.

How VPN’s Smart DNS Allows You to Watch Disney Plus on Xbox in Unsupported Country?

Simply put, the internet service you are using contains your local IP address. And since streaming services like Disney+ need to follow the content distribution policies, it uses an IP tracking system.

With this IP tracking system, when a user tries to access their service from a country where the service is not available, it immediately blocks the user by tracking the local IP address.

This is where a VPN comes to rescue. By using a VPN’s Smart DNS feature, you can spoof your local IP address and replace it with the US IP address. In this way, when you try to access the Disney+ on Xbox in the unsupported country via VPN, it tricks the IP tracking system that you are residing somewhere in the USA and thus allows you to access the service.
