Think about your privacy
This step is optional. But we highly recommend you to use an affordable, cheap and fast VPN service to hide your footprints and access geo-blocked content. We have tested a lot of VPN services but only a few of them are worth it. Especially IPVanish VPN is the one, which worked best for us with FireTV´s and FireTV Sticks.
