How to Use Disney Plus from Outside the US

Just like you cannot watch Disney Plus in Malaysia without a VPN, you cannot access Disney Plus outside the USA without a Disney Plus VPN. Disney Plus is an American online streaming service that cannot be accessed outside the USA due to content licensing and distribution policies.

We can count Netflix among these services as well because the streaming giant also has restrictions on its library. You cannot access a geo-blocked service anywhere else than its host region without a VPN.

A VPN will help you spoof your virtual location and it will enable you to bypass any restriction without being identified. One thing you should know is that not every VPN is reliable for streaming and bypassing geo-restrictions. Some VPNs may leak IP and DNS, putting you into trouble. Therefore I have hand-picked three of the best VPNs that you can use on Amazon FireStick.
