One of the most anticipated streaming platforms is finally released. People are comparing Netflix vs Disney+, while the two platforms compete head to head, Disney+ hasn’t been launched globally yet.
You can, however, use a VPN service and access Disney Plus from anywhere but recently the service has imposed strict detection on the use of VPN services. All the services that were working until yesterday are not working today.
Some technical people in communities are of the idea that once Disney+ detects that you are using a VPN from a country where it is not available, it will ban your account.
If you try accessing Disney+ in a region where it is not available, you will receive the following error:
Disney Plus also faced app-related issues on various devices during the launch week. The executives stated that the sign-ups were higher than their highest expectations, 10 Million subscribers on day one! Here are the download links for all the compatible devices.
Another problem that Disney Plus faced was that thousands of accounts got hacked and were on sale on the dark web, for $5 per year.
Disney made it pretty clear in the beginning only that it had a strong stance against VPN services when it launched in the Netherlands, people were trying to get their hands on it from abroad but to no avail.

As for Disney+ VPN, at the moment the majority of the top tier providers are not working. As of today (11/28/2019), three providers are found to be working and that are NordVPN, PureVPN, and Surfshark. Besides the claims, big VPN providers’ including ExpressVPN are still struggling to unblock the service. ExpressVPNs Washington server is only working, therefore, it is not recommended at the moment. If you’re facing problems with NordVPN, PureVPN or Surfshark as well, follow the below steps:
- Clear app data of Disney+
- Deactivate GPS
- Turn on NordVPN or PureVPN and select US server
- Now you are good to stream!
Updated on 28/11/19 – Only Two VPNs are now working with Disney Plus
We also tested ExpressVPN today and use its most recommended Washington’s server as per Reddit and surprisingly it is working but only on iOS and Android devices.
Following are the testing results we conducted today:
PureVPN (currently working with Disney+)
Surfshark (currently working with Disney+)
ExpressVPN (Only Washington Server is working with Disney+)
