What happens if I try to watch Disney Overseas?
When attempting to watch Disney channel abroad, you’ll either be redirected to the local Disney website, or the app will show an error saying that you seem to be accessing the content overseas.
A VPN makes it appear that you’re in the US, which allows full access to all programs.
You simply need to:
- Sign-up with a VPN provider (ExpressVPN is our preferred choice),
- Download the Express VPN app
- Login to the VPN, selecting a US server
- Open the Disney app and watch your favorite episodes
How Can I download the Disney Channel apps abroad?
The short answer is yes, but it isn’t easy and I’d recommend other options. (Follow our guide for changing your Google Play address).
My preferred approach is using your smartphone web browser
