Fire TV Stick 4KThis Firestick resource page will provide you with up-to-date tutorials that will teach you how to stream free movies, TV shows, live channels, sports, pay-per-view sporting events, and much more.

The Amazon Firestick has become the most popular streaming device on the market today due to its low price point and ease of “side-loading” popular free streaming applications.

What is a Firestick? – The BasicsWhat is a Firestick

In October of 2018, Amazon released the new Fire TV Stick 4k with Alexa Voice Remote. For the price of $49.99, the Firestick is an affordable option for anyone looking to expand their streaming choices.

This is an upgrade from the previous version of the Firestick which did not have 4k streaming capabilities.

One of the main reasons the Fire TV Stick is so popular is because of its accessibility. This little device is about the size of a flash drive and can be used nearly anywhere.

The Firestick features a built-in HDMI connector that will plug into almost any television. It will access your TV’s Input and allow for multiple functions via wi-fi connection. This media player offers 1080p video streaming which means all content will be in High Definition quality.

After purchasing the Fire TV Stick, there is no additional fee or subscription price. You will simply install various applications on the device that allow you to stream, game, and everything in between. While some of these apps do charge a small fee, there are hundreds of free ones as well.

How to Jailbreak a FirestickHow To Get Started

If you would like to stream free movies, TV shows, live channels, sports, and pay-per-view events for free, you will want to side-load apps that will allow this onto your Firestick.

Many people refer to this as “jailbreaking”.

The most popular tutorial among cord-cutters is the TROYPOINT Jailbreak guide that you can access via the link below.  This tutorial is the quickest way to unlock the full potential of your Firestick and/or Fire TV.

How Does a Firestick Work?

A frequently asked question many like to know prior to purchasing a Fire TV Stick is whether or not it will work with their television. Because nearly all television sets have HDMI ports, Firesticks are fully functional with just about every TV available.

The Amazon Firestick uses wi-fi to install and use the applications and is controlled with a provided remote. Because of the device’s portability, it will work with a wireless Hot Spot or nearly every other wireless internet connection.Free Movies

This makes the Firestick one of the most versatile streaming devices available today. With a compact design and a simple setup, you can take the firestick with you almost anywhere.

One of the greatest features of the 2nd Generation Firestick is the Alexa Voice Remote. This new component of the Fire TV works great for those who don’t like to type out an entire search option. The remote is able to use your voice to control the device and can even connect to an Amazon Echo or Alexa device.

Although the Firestick does come with the Alexa remote, numerous other remotes are compatible with the device as well. TROYPOINT has come up with a list of some of the best replacement remotes for the Firestick or Fire TV.

Because apps are installed on the device itself, a firestick is portable and able to be used on nearly every TV. This is great for those who travel and want to watch their favorite content while on the go. To use at any location, simply connect the power cord to an outlet, the firestick to an HDMI port, and access a local wi-fi network.

For the small fee of only $49.99, the Amazon Firestick as a media streamer can’t be beaten. However, there are a couple of upgraded versions of this device as well. For $69.99, you can purchase the Amazon Fire TV and for $119.99, the Amazon Fire TV Cube.

Fire TV & Fire TV Cube – The Other Options

Fire TVWhile the Amazon Firestick is a tremendous option for those looking to stream Music, Movies, and TV Shows; for some, this may not be enough. If you are looking for a device that can store tons of content with the ability to play games and more, the Amazon Fire TV might be the better choice.

In June of 2018, Amazon also released a 3rd choice – the Amazon Fire TV Cube. This is a hands-free Alexa box that controls your television with only your voice. TROYPOINT has created a Fire TV Cube Review that is completely unbiased and will help you determine if it is the right choice for you.

With a heftier price, many opt for the Firestick instead of the Fire TV or Fire TV Cube. However, if you would like more bang for your buck, the Fire TV or Cube is a better device.

Overall, you cannot go wrong with either device you choose. Many have found that upon purchasing a Firestick or Fire TV, they have been able to cancel their Cable or Satellite subscriptions. With this device, the possibilities are endless.

If you lose power from the fire stick, do you lose your settings on your stick or apps? Also do you lose being signed in on real debrid?

So, I’m not sure what else to do. I’m on my 3rd firestick; this time the new 4K. The previous two firesticks both experienced the same problem which was they will connect to wifi but then toggle between loading and a ‘try again’ screen and have me re-enter the info, even though the device appears to be connected. If it did end up connecting to the wifi, it would then not let me through to the amazon server. Both firesticks were factory reset after talking with Amazon customer service. I initially thought it was the wifi stability but after testing,… Read more »

I have VPN on my computer, but also want to install on my TV with Firestick and I-phone. Problem is: I forgot my password and there is no way shown to re-acquire it. Help.

Hello troy,
My streaming is continually disrupted with the message that the Video is no longer available. However if I click on the next channel and then return to my original channel I get the picture for about 3 minutes before I have to carry out the procedure once again.
Please advise how I can solve this problem as it becomes irritating whilst watching a live sports program.
kind regards
Jesse Lyons

Hi Troy, I bought the Apple firecube and tried to make it work on my Element flat screen tv but I couldn’t get it to work even after being on the phone with 4 different techs from Apple… they just could not make it work on my tv… they said it was because I have Linux Ubuntu, not windows or mac system… Any thoughts on how to make it work?

Thanks
