How to Watch Netflix and Disney+ with PureVPN.
Netflix and Disney + are some of the most popular streaming services that offer a huge catalog, ease of access, multi-device support and, unfortunately, also geographic restrictions. It has been an ongoing battle between consumers and streaming services, and if you ever want to access geo-restricted content from the comfort of your home, then a good VPN is your best bet. In this article, I’ll show you how to access Netflix and Disney + using PureVPN. Let’s start.
Streaming companies have licensing agreements with film studios that restrict their streaming outside of the permitted countries. As a consumer, you get access to all content if you are in that country, but if you try to access it from anywhere else it becomes annoying.
Log into PureVPN. PureVPN claims to offer a hassle-free experience, high speed, anonymity, and security when connecting to their VPN. They also offer some cool features like Split Tunneling, Internet Kill Switch, Multiple Sign-in, but I’ll focus on using PureVPN to stream geo-restricted content on Netflix and Disney +.
Watch Netflix and Disney + with PureVPN
The first step is to get a subscription plan for PureVPN from their website. PureVPN supports a wide variety of devices, you can get it for Android, Windows, macOS, iOS, Linux, Chrome, Firefox, etc.
Once you’ve installed the app on your device, simply sign in with your PureVPN credentials and select a mode. There are many modes that offer different services such as Stream, Internet Freedom, Security / Privacy, P2P File Transfer and Dedicated IP. The best mode for watching Netflix is Stream.
After selecting a mode, you will be prompted to select a server, you can start by selecting a server located in that country and clicking the connect button. For example, I live outside the US and wanted to browse the US directory, so I chose a server in the US.
Once the VPN connection is active, start browsing the directory and looking for titles exclusive to that country. It should display as usual. Office (US version) is not available in my country, but browsing with PureVPN immediately opens it.
However, if you encounter an error, just choose another server that is less popular like Columbus, Atlanta, etc. From my experience I have noticed that not every server works for everyone, so keep trying what works for you and I like it to be easier to connect next time.
Watch Disney + with PureVPN
If you’re reading this section, Disney + is likely not yet available in your country. Disney plans to periodically roll out this service in other countries, but you can still get the service even if you live outside the United States.
All you need is an international credit card, an Android smartphone, and a VPN to access Disney +. I’ll link the article here so you can do it yourself. Keep in mind that in order to receive a Disney + subscription, you will need to keep the VPN active and select a US server throughout the entire process.
Once you start a subscription, you can simply connect to a US server on the PureVPN app and start browsing. As with Netflix, it presented me with some problems at first, but once you find the best settings, everything else is an easy walk. In my case, I tried to use the streaming mode, which didn’t work on my Mac, but switching to the security and privacy profile resolved all problems.
How is the speed?
Streaming HD content to Netflix and Disney + requires a minimum speed of 5 Mbps. I tested this on my ISP at 8Mbps and got 6.86Mbps which still exceeds the minimum requirements for streaming. The numbers aren’t an exact representation, so I plugged in the PureVPN app and played several episodes in a row with zero buffering.
How much does PureVPN cost?
PureVPN is a subscription-based VPN with three main plans; monthly, annual and five-year subscription plans. The most cost-effective 5-year plan costs $ 1.32 per month, the annual plan costs $ 5.81 per month (billed annually), and the monthly plan costs $ 10.95 per month. As of this writing, PureVPN is running a Christmas sale and is giving you 88% off, dropping the effective price of the five-year plan from $ 657 to $ 79.
Overall, I’ve been using PureVPN on Netflix and Disney Plus for quite some time now and haven’t run into any issues yet. However, there are times when some servers are slow, try different servers to fix this problem. Are you using PureVPN? Share your thoughts in the comments below. This post is sponsored by Pure VPN
