  • Now Sign in to your Disney Plus App, or Smart TVs like Apple TV or Android TV and stream away!

How a VPN Service Will Help You Watch Disney+ in a Geo-Restricted Country?

The internet with which you browse has your local IP address. So what it means is that if you are in Malaysia, your internet connection will reflect your location as Malaysia.

Hence a VPN service is essential to conceal and change your local IP address with Disney+’s officially launched locations like Disney+ in UK, Disney+ in Hong Kong and so on. Therefore connecting to a US server with your VPN, the Disney+ tracker gets tricked by your camouflage IP address and thinks you reside in the USA. Thus, it allows you to access Disney Plus and stream the content.

You can also use a reliable VPN to unblock Hotstar in USA, Hotstar in Brazil, Hotstar in Portugal, or Disney+ Hotstar in France!

    Got sounds but no visual or pictures on TV android…please advise

    • Christina William says:

      Hi Jamilah,

      Usually, this happens when your Disney+ app is outdated. Check for app updates and install them. Alternatively, delete the app first, clear your cache, then reinstall Disney+ on your Android TV.

      I hope it helps.
