Best VPN for Disney+ 2019: How to watch Disney+ in the UK

Best VPN for Disney+ 2019: How to watch Disney+ in the UK
Disney+ is still notably absent from our screens in the UK. Unfortunately, this is because the service won’t actually launch in the UK until March 31, 2020. So despite the streaming service already being available in the US, Canada, The Netherlands, Australia, and New Zealand, it would seem UK residents are out of luck.

This is hard to accept, however, considering The Mandalorian and Baby Yoda are among the highlights for the year, we’re getting a serious case of FOMO at the moment.

So we’ve done some digging and found a workaround. Follow these steps, and we will reveal the best method for unblocking Disney+ in the UK.

TL;DR How to Watch Disney+ in the UK

  1. Download a VPN
  2. Create a US Apple ID or a US Google Play Store account
  3. Purchase a digital US gift card
  4. On an iOS or Android device, create a Disney+ account using a VPN
  5. Pay with the US gift card

Choosing your VPN

When it comes to choosing a VPN specifically for Disney+, we’ve tested the following; PureVPN, CyberGhost, NordVPN, and ExpressVPN, all of which can successfully stream US Disney+ content at the time of writing.

The trouble with Disney+ is that it’s currently exclusive to certain countries, and you will require a US address to make an account and pay for the service. This means your VPN is somewhat useless unless you know someone in the US who can set up and pay for the account on your behalf.

The workaround for this can be found on the US Apple or Google Play stores.

US Digital Gift Cards: iOS and Android

Using your new VPN, you should now be able to connect to a US server. Once on the server, proceed to create a brand-new US Apple ID or Google Play store account.

From here you will need to purchase a US gift card with enough credit to cover a Disney+ membership. Depending on where you buy this from, the minimum price ranges from $10 – $15.

On Android, these gift cards can be purchased from the US Amazon store and then loaded onto your new US Google account.

Download the Disney+ App

Continue using your VPN via a US server, and then download the Disney+ app on an iOS or Android device.

Proceed to the membership screen and then use the gift card credit as your payment option. Streaming Disney+ content should then be unlocked on this account, and you can proceed on whatever device that works.

You’ll be admiring Baby Yoda before you know it.

Exclusives can make or break a streaming service, so you can be certain that many more will be along the way very soon.

Currently, one of the most popular titles on the service is the Star Wars series, The Mandalorian, featuring Pedro Pascal in the title role. Ewan McGregor has also confirmed that an Obi-Wan Kenobi series will be featured on Disney+ in the future.

Fans can also expect a selection of Marvel shows, with The Falcon and the Winter Soldier coming in 2020, Loki, and WandaVision in spring 2021.
