All the options listed work on Fire TV 1st Gen, Fire TV Stick 1st Gen, Fire TV 2nd Gen, 2nd Gen Fire TV Stick, Fire TV 3 and Fire TV Cube. Let’s start by talking more about Fire TV, Firestick and Fire TV Cube. Fire TV is a streaming media box made by Amazon. It gives you the chance to watch movies, TV shows and more. The main difference between the Fire TV stick and the box is that the Fire TV stick is smaller and it is also cheaper. The Fire TV Stick is less powerful and its performance tends to be slower than what you get with the Fire TV or Fire TV Cube.

We will go through the steps that you need to follow for each method, but before we start, it is worth mentioning that a VPN should be used to enjoy a high level of protection. You can keep your identity hidden and protect the security of your internet traffic. There are several providers in the VPN industry but we recommend you to choose a well-established solution.
