I have an Amazon Fire TV (Amazon Fire TV Stick) and want to watch Disney Plus on my device abroad. But, when I start the application I get a Service Unavailable message. Is there a way to fix this, making me able to stream Disney Plus on my Fire TV abroad?
It is quite easy to watch Disney Plus on a Fire TV abroad, and what is better, the same method can be used to watch HBO Now, NBC, CBS All Access, Fox, American Netflix, Amazon Prime content, and much more on your Fire TV outside the United States. How is it done?
If you click the button above, you will be taken directly to the ExpressVPN website where you can sign up for their services. As you can see, you will get the most value for your money if you purchase a 12-months subscription, but the decision is entirely yours.
Do not forget, you will be protected by their 30-day refund policy (no matter which package you buy), and you can use ExpressVPN on as many as five devices at the same time. So, while you run ExpressVPN on your Fire TV to watch Disney+ outside the United States, you can also use ExpressVPN on your computer to watch content on Italian Netflix, and at the same time let your neighbor use the subscription to watch the most recent episodes of Cuckoo or maybe Line of Duty at the BBC website in the UK. And when all this happens, you can still use your subscription at two more devices at the same time.

Have you followed the instructions? Do you still get some service unavailable error, or maybe you need some help of other sorts? Write your question and I will do my best to help you out.
I would also love to hear from those who have followed the instructions and who now feel too busy streaming Disney+ to actually write a comment. But still, write a comment and let me know what you are streaming on Disney+, and to tell the rest of the world about how much you enjoy it!
There are lots of Amazon fans and Amazon users worldwide who want to stream Disney Plus on their Amazon Fire TV or on their Amazon Fire TV Stick. But, which VPN service can be used to stream Disney+ without error messages or VPN error messages?
There are many VPN providers on the market, but there are not many out there giving you access to Disney+. So, in order to watch Disney+ on your Fire TV, you will need to find a VPN provider with a nice application available for Amazon Fire TV, and at the same time with VPN servers working with Disney+. Which provider should you pick?
VPN providers blocked by Disney+
When you try to watch Disney+ abroad, you will most likely get all sorts of error messages if you just pick any random VPN provider. Not only does Disney+ block many VPN providers, but they also work on their VPN defense constantly, making sure to block more and more IP addresses every single day. That makes it harder to recommend certain services, but based on my very own experience, there are a few VPN providers that should get the job done for you. Not only will they help you watch Disney+ on your Amazon Fire TV abroad, but it will also help you watch Disney+ on your cell phone (iOS/Android), on your computer, on your tablet, and also on gaming devices, and all sorts of operating systems.
To make it even better, the recommended VPN providers all come with full refund policies, meaning that you can just ask for a full refund if you don’t like the service or if you don’t get it to work.

First of all, I cannot guarantee you that everything will work at all times, but based on my personal experience and continuous testing, the VPN providers here should work. If not, simply ask for your money back. But once again, they should work, so there is no need to worry either way.
Watch Disney Plus on Fire TV with Surfshark VPN
Surfshark VPN is one of the leading VPN providers on the market currently, and they are a brilliant tool for those who want to stream Netflix content, Amazon Prime abroad… and for those who want to watch Disney+ on a Fire TV Stick. They have a beautiful VPN application available for download, and once you have the application ready, connect to any of their servers. You will then be able to stream Disney+, and since you can connect to any server, you don’t have to lose speeds as you connect to a server in the United States (if that is far away from your current location).
Surfshark is the cheapest VPN provider that I will mention here, and I recommend that you purchase a 2-year subscription, as it will give you a totally awesome price and much value for your money. You will not get a VPN cheaper than this, so give it a try and get ready to stream Disney+ on your Amazon Fire device.
Stream Disney+ on Fire TV Stick with ExpressVPN
The Virgin Islands-based VPN provider ExpressVPN is way more expensive than Surfshark VPN. But, they have proved themselves to be awesome throughout the years, and they are also known for the awesome speeds on their VPN servers. They have several servers working with Disney+, and the fact that they also have nice applications for all the important platforms (including Fire TVs), makes it a nice VPN provider to use.
ExpressVPN can be used on five devices at the same time. As a consequence, you can use ExpressVPN to stream The Mandalorian on Disney+ on your Fire TV, and at the same time watch Suits season 9 on UK Netflix, while you use the same tool to secure your computer while you unblock other websites.
They have a 30-day full refund policy, so once again, there is no need to worry!
Watch Disney Plus with NordVPN on your Fire TV
A third VPN provider that seems to work fine with Disney Plus on Fire TV (and other devices) is NordVPN. This Panama-based VPN provider has servers all across the world, and they are good at unblocking all sorts of websites. They have a 30-day money-back guarantee, and one subscription can be used at six different devices simultaneously. NordVPN is a cheaper VPN provider than ExpressVPN, but their long-term packages are more expensive than those of Surfshark VPN.
NordVPN is a proud sponsor of Liverpool FC in the United Kingdom, so if you are a football fan and like Mohamad Salah, Virgil van Dijk, and all the other players of Liverpool, maybe you can show your support to them by purchasing a NordVPN subscription? Or if you hate football and consider it to be a waste of time and money, go for one of the other VPN providers instead.
Once you have your Fire TV set up and ready with a VPN subscription, what to stream then? Well, Disney+ is still a new streaming service, but they got a flying start with lots of content coming with the platform from the first second. As a result, this is a perfect place to stream all the Star Wars movies out there, it is awesome for those in love with the Marvel universe, including all the Avengers movies, the Thor movies, the Iron Man movies, and all the others.
But, why did we all fall in love with Disney in the first place? It is the dream-universe of those who love animated movies. Here you can stream all your dear and beloved animated movies, including Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, Aladdin, The Lion King, and lots of others.
If you want to learn something, you might want to check out the Disney+ original series named The World According to Jeff Goldblum. And if that isn’t enough, why not check all the National Geographic content available on the platform. You will not get bored for a long time if you look around Disney+ in order to find something to stream. The platform is packed!
Besides this, you have the awesome Disney+ original series named The Mandalorian. That is the most popular of all the content on the platform, and they also have other original productions coming every month. It might not be a Netflix-killer yet, but it has for sure turned into a big competitor from the very first day of its existence.
The Mandalorian has been the highlight of Disney+ after its release on November 12th. The platform got 10 million subscribers on its first day, and I have a feeling that most of the people who signed up did so because of this brand new series. But, can you stream The Mandalorian only on Disney+, or can you purchase the series or the stand-alone episodes on Amazon.com? Can you stream The Mandalorian with your Amazon Prime subscription?
Disney+ can now be streamed in the United States, in Canada, in the Netherlands, in New Zealand, and in Australia. We are promised that the streaming service will come to quite some European nations in March 2020, but until then, can it be streamed elsewhere? And will it ever come to Amazon.com as an instant video option, or with Amazon Prime?
If you do a quick search for The Mandalorian on Amazon.com, you will currently see something like this.
As you can see, these effects and toys are all related to The Mandalorian, but neither of them will help you stream the actual series. Will The Mandalorian ever come to Amazon.com? I have my clear doubts! Do you know why?
Why The Mandalorian will not come to Amazon?
Can you imagine a bakery known for its awesome vanilla and chocolate cake that is impossible to find elsewhere? People run to the bakery to buy it, and once they are there, they, of course, spend money on other products as well. Other bakeries would love to sell the vanilla and chocolate cake, and thus, they would be willing to pay a lot for the rights to sell it themselves. But, if the bakery would give up their specialty, they would end up losing visitors and make less money in the end. So, by keeping their favorite to themselves, they make sure that people have to visit them to get their hands on it.
What does the vanilla and chocolate cake have to do with The Mandalorian? People come to Disney+ to watch this series. Actually, this is the number one reason why people actually signed up for the service in the first place. But, if they would give away the rights to show the series and let it be streamed on Amazon.com as an Instant Video or with Amazon Prime, people wouldn’t need the Disney+ subscription anymore, and it would end up with very few subscribers for the streaming service from Disney.
In order to attract users, they will, therefore, keep this golden egg to themselves, and that is why it will never come to HBO, Netflix Amazon Prime, or Hulu.
Time to buy a Disney+ subscription?
Well, that is entirely up to you. If you want to watch The Mandalorian legally, Disney+ is the only valid solution. You can click the link above to find out more on how to stream Disney+ online, and if you have a subscription, check this video to learn some cool tricks that will help you using Disney+.
There are still great movies and TV shows worth watching on Amazon Prime. In a few days, the movie Brittany Runs a Marathon will come to the platform, and we have also been given the second season of Jack Ryan recently. In other words, there are lots of great stuff still available on Amazon Prime.
Inside Out was one of the big hit films in 2015 and it is even nominated for an Oscar in February 2016. If you have not yet seen Inside Out then you have your chance to watch it on Amazon.com right now.
Inside Out was nominated for Best Animated Film, a category Disney has won the last two years with Frozen and Big Hero 6. I liked both Frozen and Big Hero 6, so had no problem at all with those winning. But, yesterday I watched Inside Out and it had an effect on me that neither Big Hero 6 nor Frozen had… I fell asleep! I am not sure why I actually fell asleep, but it can be said for sure that I was quite bored with the film from the very start. It might be that I have a really poor taste and that is why I feel asleep, but compared to Big Hero 6 and Frozen this film was simply super boring to me.
What is Inside Out about? It tells the story of a teenage girl that moves with her parents to San Francisco. This is a hard thing for a teenage girl and on her inside joy, sadness, anger and other feelings are fighting to get her attention and to help her out in life. But what happens when joy and sadness suddenly disappears and our main role character can no longer enjoy her relationships the way she has done so earlier? That is kind of the story of this film, but again, I fell asleep so I might have loosed out on some of the points.
