Quick start guide
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bloomin' marvellous! The Amazon Fire TV Stick 8Gb is the easiest way to bring an old TV back to daily use (provided that it has an HDMI port). However, before you start using it, you must have a valid account with Amazon - it is possible to set-up an account without credit card details but that may prevent you from installing some apps. So, a "dummy" account with no bank details may work for you It is possible to re-register later with full bank details.. Set-up is simple - just connect the provided cables as shown on the set-up leaflet, plug it in and you are away. You can use a USB socket as the power source but the device would prefer a mains connection (cable & plug provided). When installing apps I have found that it is sometimes possible to get around this problem by being persistent with the "Get" button; press it and if you get an error message press it again and with a bit of luck it will start downloading. As far as Amazon is concerned the main aim of the Fire TV Stick is to relieve you of your hard-earned cash in exchange for films, TV programs and music. The device can however do so much more - with the addition of some free apps that do not appear in the "suggested apps" section. You will, first, need to switch on the two options in Settings -> System -> Developer Options to install apps from third parties (ie. not Amazon or Google). I installed Kodi - one of the finest media players for Android; it's Free & Open Source Software. Do a search and you will find it and the installation instructions. You will need the Android ARM version. Once installed you will be able to download additional addons from the Kodi site. Addons for Kodi are also available from third parties such as TVAddons who have a very informative website and a very active Forums area - useful for tips and tricks to make life easier. This really is a wonderful device and works without a hitch on the "old" (small) TV in the bedroom. I highly recommend the Amazon Fire TV Stick 8Gb.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not that Clever! After all the great reviews I was disappointed with my purchase. For some reason the firestick kept loosing the WiFi connection and kept asking to reboot the router, very annoying! I was also surprised that you cannot power off the unit, this can only be achieved by unplugging the unit. Looking now for an android box with an ethernet connection and capable of being turned off when not in use.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from 90% of the content doesn't work outside of usa Bought this thinking it would be similar to a Comcast , can only be used if you have a vpn with a us I.p address. Otherwise pretty much useless even with an amazon prime account.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pretty decent Good value for money. Sometimes the software itself can be a little slow, but apart from this issue which could probably be fixed with a future software update, can't complain with this little feature packed stick.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Money well spent This is a great piece of kit, if you haven't got one, buy one! My only problem is why I didn't buy one sooner, compared to sky, Virgin TV & alike this is a no brainer.
