Disney recently launched its Disney+ subscription service that we were all waiting for. However, the initial release is only for the United States, Canada, and the Netherlands. So other countries are left out for now.
If you don’t want to wait so long to be able to have your Disney+ subscription, you’re in luck. We are going to tell you how to do it through a VPN connection, “cheating” the web and subscribing as if you were doing it from one of those countries of the initial launch.
What steps to follow to see Disney+ through a virtual private network (VPN)
You will only need to perform four simple steps to connect to Disney+ from any country that is not among those of the initial launch:
- Download a virtual private network (VPN) application on your device.
- Create a new Apple ID in the United States, Canada or the Netherlands.
- Buy an online gift card for the App Store of the country you have chosen.
- Create a Disney+ account for your subscription.
Below we explain how to perform each of the steps just described:
1. Download a virtual private network (VPN) application on your device
The VPN apart from offering us internet security by camouflaging our IP, also allow us to connect to the network as if we were in another country. We will take advantage of this feature to access Disney+. In the App Store/Play Store, there are many applications to connect to VPN networks, both free and paid. Check our next article to know what you have to consider when choosing a VPN .
Once you have decided on one of the options you will have to connect to a server located in the United States, Canada or the Netherlands to continue with the rest of the steps.
2. Create a new Apple ID in the United States, Canada or the Netherlands
Once connected to the server of the chosen country we must create an Apple ID account in that country in order to continue with our purpose. For them, we must open the “App Store” or “Music” and log out. Once closed we look for the flag icon or the “Change country” button. Now you can create your new Apple ID but do not add bank information to the account.
3. Buy an online gift card for the App Store of the country you have chosen
Once this is done, the account will have to be recharged to pay for the Disney+ subscription In the case of the United States, it will be enough to enter Best Buy to buy a recharge card. You will find them from $15. Once you receive the code, exchange it in the Apple ID we have created and you will have the balance available.
4. Create a Disney+ account for your subscription
The last step to follow will be to download the Disney+ app from the App Store connected to the VPN. Once downloaded we will create an account and activate the subscription using the balance we have in our Apple ID. With this, we can already enjoy the content of Disney+ on our device although in our country it is not available.
As you can see, just follow a few simple steps to have the Disney+ subscription available before anyone else. Totally recommended for all fans that we cannot wait for the launch in our country.
