Are you considering buying a Fire TV device, and unsure if its right for you? Or maybe you've already got one, and want to get the most out of your device?

Well this guide should help answer any questions you may have, and put you on your way to enjoying even more content at your fingertips.



So, Firstly, what is Amazon Fire TV?

Back in 2014, Amazon unveiled the first generation Fire TV. A plug in box that could be connected to an HDMI enabled TV, giving you access to smart apps and features on your TV.

Due to increasing success of the device, later that same year, Amazon unveiled the Fire TV Stick. The stick gives you similar functionality to the box, but with a much smaller form factor, and more importantly, a smaller price tag.

Amazon have continued to revise and improve Fire TV devices, with their latest generation devices supporting 4K, Alexa Voice Control and Search and much more.

With now Over 7,000 apps, games and Alexa skills, including Prime Video, BBC iPlayer, ITV Hub, Netflix, and more. Plus, access millions of websites such as YouTube, Facebook, and Reddit with browsers like Silk and Firefox.

So, what can a Fire TV device do?

The simplest way to view it's features, is to say that it gives you access to hundreds of apps, similar to a mobile phone, with some being free, and some paid; such as video and audio subscription services like Netflix, Amazon Prime, Spotify to name just a few.

The main uses are;

  • Watching Netflix or another internet video streaming service
  • Voice search content using Alexa (more about this later on)
  • Connecting to games or watching YouTube videos on your TV
  • Sharing Photos to the connected TV


-Frequently Asked Questions-


Okay, what do I need to make it work?

Firstly, you are going to need an HDMI enabled TV. The device will need power too! So you will need a nearby plug, and lastly, you will need a wireless internet connection as this is an internet based device.


Can I stream 4K with a Fire TV?

Yes, on the latest Fire TV device, the box supports 4K video, provided you have a 4K TV, you can start right away and enjoy 4K content direct from Netflix, Amazon Prime TV and others.


Is Alexa Supported?

On the latest generation of devices, yes. You can use Alexa to not only search for content on your Fire TV device, but you can also use it to control your Fire TV, not only from the mic enabled remote, but other Alexa devices such as the Echo, Echo Dot, Echo spot etc.

Can I watch Sky programs on my Fire TV?

Not officially, no. Some users discovered that the app could be sideloaded (sideloading is a way of installing an app onto the device that is not officially on the Amazon Fire Store for download) but results were mixed, and Sky have since stopped users from gaining access via this method.

Can I Use NowTV on my Fire TV?

No, as it is a competing product, they do not allow their service on the Fire TV at this time.

Can I Jailbreak my Fire TV device?

To Jailbreak a device, is to modify it to remove restrictions imposed by the manufacturer. In this case, it would be to install, or sideload, unsupported apps such as Kodi. This can be achieved using various methods documented across the internet.

Can I install Kodi on my device?

Most, if not all of the generations of the Fire TV devices can have Kodi installed via various methods, but doing so may invalidate the warranty on your device, or cause unexpected behaviour such as crashing, or even worse the device failing to work. We suggest you research heavily on how to do this safely before attempting it.

What do i get as an existing Prime member?

Amazon Prime members get unlimited access to Prime Video, featuring thousands of movies and TV episodes, including The Grand Tour, at no additional cost. Plus, Prime members can add over 40 premium channels such as Discovery and Eurosport Player. Channels are available as individual subscriptions so you only pay for the TV channels you want.

Half correct, you can push the APK to the device, even get it to load without the not supported error, but the Amazon controller doesn't do anything and you cant even sign in or select anything unfortunately. Somebody tried to fix the remote issue but the modified APK wouldn't connect to Now TV it has a strict checksum to prevent it being exploited.

Please explain how you do this!

By Kodi - do you mean a modded Android box? If yes the the Now TV apk will install and load but will not run video

Now TV do not support it - this is taken directly from Now TV website


Installing NOW TV on your Android tablet or mobile

You can watch NOW TV on most Android devices, just as long as they were bought in the UK and are in their original state.

If you’re having a few issues running the NOW TV app on your Android tablet or mobile, it could be because:

Your device has been modified or rooted – even if this was done by the manufacturer.
You bought your device outside of the UK.
It’s a Kindle Fire HD device.

so doesn't work on the firestick as was the question.

Had me excited for a moment there.
I have installed apk but it exits when tried to open after installation. So answer is, Now tv app doesn't work on fire stick. May be in future, Sky release some version for firestick.
