Hiya, to jail break & fully load it
If you need a VPN, NordVPN is good. There are alternatives. A quick search shows ExpressVPN, IPVanish and others.
I used digibit for a while (£2 a month). It's ok and even got me iPlayer when I was travelling in France. plus it's only a month by month contract

That's an unusual expectation of a VPN, but hey: it's a Direstick.

You don't need a VPN lol, if you've got an android phone and have a few movie apps on there or a tablet send them to the stick via an app called apps2fire

You don’t need a vpn, you just need to sideload the App Store and install Kodi, IPTV etc

Go to your Fire TV Stick’s settings page located at the top of the home menu.
Scroll right and choose Device
Move down to Developer Options
Set Apps from Unknown Sources to ON.
Accept the warning message about installing external apps.


Open the Amazon appstore on your Fire TV.
Search for Downloader and install the program.
While that installs, go to another device and locate the direct URL for the apk you want to install. Make sure it ends with .apk, otherwise it won’t work.
Open Downloader and type in the URL. You can also use the built-in browser to navigate the web, but it’s much easier to use a PC.
Download the file through Downloader. Once complete, you can install it by selecting “Files” within the interface.
Sideloaded apps will appear on your Fire Stick’s main page along with the rest of your software.
