Are you trying to access Disney Plus but seeing ‘Error 73’ repeatedly on your screen? Well, you might be aware of this error code, still let me explain what Disney Plus Error 73 is for others.
What is Disney Plus Error 73 and how does it occur?
Error 73 indicates location and availability issues and this adversely affects the streaming experience for the viewers. The problem arises in the countries where Disney Plus is already available.
Typically, this error pops up when you try to get access to Disney Plus from a location where it is not available. When you access Disney Plus from such a location then you get the following error:
“Disney+ is only available in certain regions. Depending on where you are located, you may not be able to access Disney+. If you think you may be seeing this message in error, visit the Disney+ Help Center (error code 73).”
When you go to Disneyplus.com login/begin, the first and foremost thing it checks is your location. If it finds that a VPN is being used to mock the location, it will flash the above message on your screen. The VPN is detected by Disney Plus when the server in use is weak or the service of the VPN is pathetic.
Error 73 can also occur if your local server or your ISP is creating troubles. The error also shows up when Disney Plus is stuck either in deciding your location or believes that the person is hiding their identity.
