Looks like we are out of luck until they make it official......they are employing Amazon's approach to detecting VPN's as it's showing the "LocationNotAllowedException", message: "User is not allowed to use the app in their current location." message in web browsers.

Well Disney.....i'd be happy to pay to watch The Mandalorian, but if you're gonna be like this then i'll stream for free!

You could try the Netherlands with your VPN? We have access and a free 2 month trial to boot.

It'd be a pretty stupid move for Disney+ not to be available here at the same time as the rest of the world. That said, if they do screw us I'm with you, Rob. :twisted:

I don't see why they can't launch the same time over here, just without the films etc that are tied up with Sky contracts etc. They could just add those in at a later date. Everyone is simply going to stream the Mandalorian from somewhere- they're gonna lose out big time!

The latest news I have heard is that due to Sky's current licensing deal to show Disney content, Disney+ cannot launch in the UK till the 1st quarter of 2020 when that license runs out. If this is true, and I haven't heard anything to the contrary, it would seem we are being shafted. Whilst the majority of the rest of the world get to watch The Mandalorian from mid Nov we will have to try and avoid spoilers for 2-4 months. Fuck that!

It feels even more bitter given that fact that I feel this could be the show that starts to bring back those fans who have little to no interest in the goings on of Poe, Rey, Finn etc. I shall find another to watch Mando. Nice one Disney! :roll:

Thanks for the update Chris. If that is the case then that really does suck i would have signed up to Disney+ for this and still will when it finally launches here. If they don't drop the whole season in one go at least we might get the option to binge watch the whole thing but still i would rather see it at the same time as everyone else.

And a massive fuck you to you, Disney! :evil: This is a fucking joke. Do they really expect god knows how many fans to try and remain spoiler free for nearly 5 months! Congratulations, Disney, you've just created the perfect storm for piracy. :roll:

If VPNs are being spotted, can you use the account of someone who lives in the US? My cousin lives in Vegas, when he signs up could I just ask him to send me his login details and go via a VPN?

They’ve dropped a bollock here, I was well up for subscribing, doubt anyone will wait til March to watch the Mandalorean. Pretty shoddy really.
