So I got a cheap Disney plus account but am in Ireland,

Thought I could use my vpn and download the app straight to the box from my Google account but this isn't working,

What's the easiest way to get the app,
Ideally the actual Android TV app so it work well with the remote without the curser,

Any help or advice most welcome

    VPN should work with play store
    But you might have to wipe
    Play store app cache or something

    Thanks for the reply,I tried installing the apk via the split apk trick going about but the app won't work at all,

    Are you in the USA by any chance,I'm reading Disney have complicated things somewhat and your actual Google account has to be the USA also.Also the app is tied to your device

    I've set my vpn to USA and none of the US apps are coming up,
    Will try your apk anyway thanks.

    Another option
    Turn on VPN
    Then create a new Google account

    Yes, might try creating a new Google account with US settings just to get the app,but then I'm like,do I really need this Disney plus anyway,
    Cheers though,

    The apk you gave throws an error when installing which makes me think they're blocking by more than just ip address

    Creating a American gogle account with your VPN set to America seems to work when you sign in to your shield with that account you can get the app.

    Hello. I'm looking for a solution to get Disney plus working outside US. I created a new Google account with my VPN and it is OK but it needs a sms confirmation and I had to get my French phone number. Then I saw that my Google play was in FR.... ****
    I tried to switch my Google play in US with my PayPal account but bad try
    As it is a French postal address I think I'm still with a FR Google play account. I can download the app but I have an error message - > I'm not in the good region
    So I'm still looking for a solution please!

    To receive sms code, you could try using some temporary sms services website...
    Don't know if it works in this particularly case, but worth a try.
