Disney Plus? It's going to be available in some locations outside of the US. That is not the case when it comes to platforms like Hulu, though. If you want to watch the Disney Plus and Hulu bundle outside of the US, you need to trick these platforms, and unfortunately, it's not as easy as telling a platform that you changed your location.
You might be thinking that since Disney Plus owns its content, it shouldn’t are about whether you access it from other countries. And that’s true, except Disney also has thousands of contracts signed over the rights to its content in countries outside of the US. And that’s a big factor behind why Disney Plus needs to have these types of measures in place.
In this guide, we go over the 3 steps that you need to take if you want to get Disney Plus and Hulu bundle outside of the US.
If you want the Disney Plus and Hulu bundle to work for you outside of the US, these platforms must think that you are in the US.
As far as changing your location virtually, this is where a VPN comes in.
VPN services? Some use them for staying safer on the internet, but for many, the biggest benefit is the fact they are capable of virtually changing your location so that you can bypass geo-blocks.
So what? Do you just get a VPN and connect to an American server?
We mentioned at the start of this guide that Disney and Hulu take measures to prevent people from accessing in unsupported countries, and yes, they also take measures against VPN services.
That’s why most servers do not work with streaming services.
If you want to have a Disney Plus and Hulu bundle, you need a VPN that supports both.
PrivateVPN supports both.
Just connect to the server that supports Disney, and you are good to go, whether that’s on your computer or smartphone.
We also give a 7-day risk-free trial that doesn’t even require you to provide a card. Just sign up by providing your email and password, and you are good to go!
Disney offers a $12.99 bundle that will also give you ESPN+ too. Sign up for it.
Depending on your location, this is the most difficult part of this guide.
That’s because you can’t just use any card to get the Disney Plus and Hulu bundle outside of the US. Hulu and Disney have extra measures in place to ensure that the users are from supported locations.
Overall, creating a Disney Plus and Hulu account is incredibly simple. It’s just like on any other platform. You just need to provide an American zip code.
...And use an American card.
The card you need to use needs to be issued in the US.
What can you do to get one?
Well, firstly try using your own card.
It might work.
If it doesn’t, see if you have any friends that live or lived in the US and missed have a US-issued card.
Otherwise? Research for prepaid and virtual cards on the internet.
If you are connected to an app store outside of the US, Disney Plus and Hulu won’t be available for download for you.
That’s why you will also need to trick your app store.
Ideally, the change will happen right away but might take up to 48-hours.
If you don’t want to go through the troubles of changing the location of your store, you can always just search for “DisneyPlus.apk” and “Hulu.apk” on Google. Of course, download it from a trusted source.
...Or use the “Desktop site” when using Chrome, and then you can watch Disney+ and Hulu bundle directly from the web browser.
On Apple devices, instead of changing your region, you need to create a new account. If you don’t, you’ll lose everything.
If you wish, you can switch between your account whenever you wish.
Not every smart TV supports VPN services.
The same applies to platforms like Apple TV, Chromecast, or Roku.
So what can you do?
Connect your laptop to a TV, get an Android TV device, or get an Amazon Fire TV Stick.
Here’s how to set up Disney+ and Hulu on the Fire TV Stick:
At just $6.99 or $12.99 for the Disney Plus and Hulu bundle that also comes with ESPN+, Disney Plus just makes a lot of sense!
And the best thing? That Disney+ offers a 7-day trial just like PrivateVPN.
