Cable TV and smart TVs can be very expensive options these days for those who only have more content options to watch on the big screen. Fortunately, devices like the Fire TV Stick can be a cheaper, more flexible, and easier-to-use solution. For those unfamiliar, it serves to stream content directly to your TV from various other devices. If you’re curious to find out exactly how it works and what else it can do, just check out our detailed explanation. See everything below!

What is Fire TV Stick?

In case you didn’t know, the Fire TV Stick is manufactured and sold by Amazon. It looks a lot like a Pen Drive at first glance. But instead of a USB connection, it has an HDMI output to connect to your TV easily.

With it, you can stream app content, video, photos and moreover a Wi-Fi connection. Basically, it’s a quick way to turn a regular TV into a Smart TV.

Of course, you can also use the device on a Smart TV. After all, the Fire TV Stick can offer even more content than such a television normally allows. You can easily download different apps like Netflix, Youtube, Cyberflix apk, Spotify, Hulu etc. and stream movies and tv shows right on your big tv screen.

How to use it?

To use Fire TV Stick, you just need to connect the device to the TV via the HDMI input. It’s just worth mentioning that the Stick also needs power, so it comes with a connector to keep it plugged in while you’re using it.

With all that in place, the initial setup instructions will be displayed on your TV screen. As the Fire TV Stick comes with its own control, you just need to use it to make these settings and start using the device to watch whatever you want.

Available content

As soon as you turn on your device, you’ll have access to many popular streaming apps. This includes Netflix, HBO Go, Amazon Prime Video, Cyberflix TV, YouTube, Crunchyroll, Twitch and more.

Other than that, you can download and install some very different games and apps, including an internet browser. You’ve got no less than 8GB of internal memory to pack whatever you want, so you don’t even have to restrict yourself too much.


The good thing about Stick from Amazon is that it works on any television or monitor that has an HDMI input. It can be a normal TV or a smart TV as it works independently of that.

Of course, you’ll need a router with a Wi-Fi signal so that content can be streamed to the Fire TV Stick. Other than that, you won’t have any compatibility issues.
