Traveling with Your Amazon Fire TV Stick

Amazon Fire TV Sticks are fantastic for allowing you to enjoy yourself after a long day of hard work. But even when you’re traveling (whether it’s for work or pleasure) it’s a perfect way to conclude a solid, exciting day. However, a lot of people get nervous or uncertain as to how they can use their Amazon Fire TV Stick effectively when on the go.

Thankfully, you can both effectively use your Stick while on the go, and sometimes you can even access brand-new content while doing so. And you’ll enjoy your vacation even more because of it. To help you on this journey, here is an all-you-need-to-know guide on traveling with your Amazon Fire TV Stick:

Step 1: Make Sure You Bring Everything With You

While it may seem like commonsense, nothing can ruin your plans like forgetting that small piece of the Fire Stick package you need to entertain yourself abroad. Make sure you’re bringing your Amazon Fire TV remote, the charger and accessories you’ve bought for the remote, your actual Amazon Fire TV Stick, and any TV accessories you’ll need if you’re bringing your TV with you on the trip.

Before you head out on your journey, be sure to triple-check your luggage to ensure you have all the pieces with you. If even one is missing, you’ll be completely out of luck, and you’ll be playing much more to enjoy entertainment while you’re on the go. Depending on where you’re traveling to, you might also find yourself highly limited by the number of entertainment options you’ll have at your fingertips. For those who want to have access to the largest amount of options possible (both at home and abroad), jailbreaking your Amazon Fire TV stick can unlock thousands upon thousands of new shows and movies to watch.

Step 2: Connect Your Amazon Fire TV Stick

After you’ve arrived at your destination, and you’ve settled down, the first thing you’ll likely want to do is explore the new area. Once you’ve enjoyed all the sights and sounds you’re able to handle for one day, you’ll be ready to sit back, relax and enjoy some quality entertainment on your Amazon Fire TV Stick. To get the process started, simply take your Amazon Fire TV Stick and plug the power adapter in. Depending on where you’re at, you may need to buy a converter to plug in your Stick, so be sure to plan ahead and research whether this will be a necessity or not (otherwise you’ll find yourself out of luck during the first night of your otherwise-amazing trip).

Next, you need to connect the Amazon Fire TV Stick to the TV, using the HDMI port. If you’ve brought your TV, you can be sure you’ll be prepared (just make sure you also pack everything else you need for the trip)! But if not, be sure you research any adapter needs that might arise if there’s not an HDMI port available, or if the HDMI equivalent is different in the location that you’re traveling in.

Step 3: Switch the TV Over to Your Amazon Firestick TV

Once you’re able to get your Amazon Fire TV Stick connected, simply switch the television over to your HDMI channel to get started. Once again, this will require a remote – so if you’re bringing your TV, go through the same triple-checking of your TV accessories before going on your trip. Thankfully, this is the simplest of the steps on this list.

Step 4: Prepare Your Optimal Settings

Once you’ve got the TV under your control, you need to set up the optimal network and playback settings on your Amazon Fire TV Stick. Getting connected to a proper, well-working, and fast internet connection is key to enjoying your night. Looking through options that might be affected by the region you’re in, or the TV you’re using, will be essential as well. Thankfully, these switches should feel natural, so you’ll simply need to discover which makes you feel most comfortable for your viewing experience.

Now You Can Enjoy Yourself

Now comes the hard part – picking something to watch. With the insane amount of content available to you via your Amazon Fire TV Stick, it might prove difficult to choose just one option. However, you’ll find the right hidden gem or comfort watch much easier after a day of enjoying yourself abroad. If you look into jailbreak methods for your Stick, you’ll have even more exclusive and region-locked content to enjoy. Kick back, relax and enjoy the amazing night you’ll have while watching excellent content on your Amazon Fire TV Stick.
