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.
