Does PureVPN Work with Disney Plus?
Yes, PureVPN unblocks Disney+ effectively through its Canada and Australia servers. See the steps below to setup PureVPN for accessing Disney Plus anywhere in the world.
It’s been than a year since Disney Plus was launched and the service has already grown outstandingly in popularity in many parts of the world. Unfortunately, Disney Plus is geo-restricted in most countries other than a few such as US, Canada, UK, Australia etc.
This means that people located outside these countries will need a VPN to access Disney Plus, but most VPNs end up getting detected and blocked by Disney.
Thankfully, this is not a problem you’re likely to face with PureVPN because it works with Disney Plus in several servers locations including Canada and Australia.
I tested PureVPN’s ability to access Disney Plus and made short videos to record whether the VPN is indeed good for Disney Plus streaming in regions where it is geo-restricted, but first let’s see the exact steps you need to perform to unblock Disney Plus with PureVPN anywhere.
Steps for Unblocking Disney Plus with PureVPN
Step 1: Subscribe to PureVPN.
Step 2: Download and install PureVPN App on your device.
Step 3: Launch PureVPN and enter your login details.
Step 4: Connect to the Canadian server location.
Step 5: Once connected, visit Disney Plus and enjoy streaming your favorite shows and movies.
Testing PureVPN with Disney Plus
Before testing PureVPN with Disney Plus, I reached customer support of PureVPN and inquired if their VPN service supports Disney Plus. The support representative answered in the affirmative and told me the following server locations will enable Disney Plus unblocking:
With this information, I set out to test PureVPN on these exact servers to confirm what I learned about the VPN’s unblocking capability when it comes to Disney Plus. Here are my results in the form of videos:
Accessing Disney Plus through Canadian Server
Using Canada server, I was able to instantly access Disney Plus with PureVPN. In the video above, you can see me streaming the movie “The Fault In Our Stars“. The video quality is excellent (HD) and I hardly had to wait 5 seconds for the buffering to finish.
Accessing Disney Plus through Australia Server
Australia is geographically located quite far from my physical location, so it is natural to expect higher pings leading to longer buffering times and possibly lower video quality of the stream. As you can see in the video above, I’m streaming the show “Once Upon A Time“. This time, it took me a little longer to buffer the video and the picture quality is obviously not that great (SD).
However, users that are physically located close to Australia probably won’t experience this problem due to better pings and connectivity.
Accessing Disney Plus through US
As I mentioned earlier, the PureVPN customer support representative pointed out three server locations that should work well for Disney Plus: US, Canada, and Australia.
Although I was able to unblock Disney Plus through the Canada and Australia server locations, the US server unfortunately didn’t work in my case and I only got a blank screen upon visiting Disney Plus through PureVPN US server.
This could be an issue on my side only or a temporary problem with PureVPN on a broader scale. But to the best of my knowledge, it is the Canada and Australia servers that will definitely work for you if you wan to unblock Disney Plus outside US or anywhere else.
Does PureVPN Ensure High Quality Disney Plus Streaming?
PureVPN certainly ensures high quality streaming as you can see in the videos above. I received HD quality picture when connected to the Canada server, which proves that PureVPN is perfectly capable of delivering high quality streams on Disney Plus.
However, the quality decidedly dropped when I was streaming through the Australia server but this is probably not the VPN’s fault, but that of the distances involved between my real location and the Australian server I was connected to.
For best results, you should always connect to the server closest to you while making sure that Disney Plus is available in said server location. This will ensure that the quality of your streams is HD and even higher if your Internet connection can support it.
Is PureVPN Fast Enough for Disney Plus?
PureVPN generally offers decent speeds, but it is not the fastest. Nonetheless, if you have a good enough Internet connection, PureVPN is more than capable of ensuring high quality streaming on Disney Plus with minimal buffering.
For instance, when connected to the Canada server, this is the speed test result of PureVPN.
These are good enough not only for streaming, but also for downloading torrents quickly through PureVPN. So, overall, PureVPN is a pretty good package for fans of Disney Plus streaming or if you simply prefer downloading movies through torrents (for legal, strictly non-commercial use).
PureVPN’s Free Trial
Unfortunately, there’s no legitimately free trial on offer from PureVPN that you can use to see for yourself if it works with Disney Pus. What you can get though is a paid trial version of PureVPN that costs $0.99.
This trial version will work for 7 days, after which you will have to pay the price of the full monthly or year subscription unless you cancel PureVPN before this time period ends. For more information, see this guide pm PureVPN free trial.
PureVPN works like a charm with Disney Plus on certain servers (Canada and Australia as per my testing). Indeed, PureVPN is generally quite powerful for unblocking streaming services. You can easily access different Netflix libraries with PureVPN, for instance.
