Disney+ UK watch now guide: Step 2 - how to watch
First up, we definitely can't guarantee this will keep working – Disney is quite aggressive about blocking access via VPN, not surprisingly. At present however, while it sometimes takes a little finessing, VPN access does definitely work for us. If it stops working, you'll be able to watch Disney+ in the UK from March 24 anyway.
Anyway, on with the guide: get your VPN up and running, then simply connect to a US-based server (this is stupidly simple, and requires just a few button pushes). Then simply open Disney Plus on your device and, BOOM, welcome to the entire Disney+ library of content, ready for you to watch immediately.
Finding it tricky? Our resident VPN wrangler suggests the following: 'Keep jumping around USA destinations in ExpressVPN, punch Disneyplus.com into your browser, sign in, and you’re in. The reason you may have to 'jump' is that sometimes it takes a bit of coaxing to not redirect you to Disneyplus.com/uk. If you are having no luck in your browser, try an incognito window.' Now you know.
If you want to stream from your mobile or laptop to a TV, your easiest options are a Google Chromecast or Apple TV streamer – just plug them into your TV via HDMI and you should be sorted. Check out our list of the best media streamers.
