If you have an Amazon Fire TV Stick you will for sure want to bring it with you as you go traveling. Maybe you are heading overseas for a short holiday, or maybe the destination is somewhere else, but the question is still whether or not you can use the Amazon Fire TV Stick abroad or not.
We originally wrote this article back in 2015, but we have just renewed it completely due to a lot of changes that have taken place in the world and especially, with the newer versions of the Amazon Fire TV stick that has been released on the market.
And you should also be happy, because things have gotten much easier now compared to what life was like if you wanted to use your Amazon Fire TV stick abroad a couple of years ago. Read on to find out more about how you can use your Amazon Fire TV Stick abroad.
Using Amazon Fire TV Stick abroad
You probably guessed it right, there is no trouble using the Amazon Fire TV stick abroad. You can connect it to a TV just like you would at home, and it will work. But, the problems show up if you try to stream your favorite services or in your favorite apps when abroad. If you try to watch content in the NBC application, if you try to stream Hulu abroad on your Fire TV, or maybe as you try to watch CBS All Access abroad, you will start getting error messages about how the content cannot be streamed at your current location. What can you do about such error messages?
The easiest way to use your Fire Stick abroad
The easiest way to use your Fire TV Stick abroad is by using the VPN services of ExpressVPN. This is a brilliant VPN service and they have a ready application in the App Store on your Amazon Fire TV (Stick). You will first need to sign up for their VPN services, which can be done clicking the button beneath.
Click the button above, and if you sign up for ExpressVPN for 12 months, you will even get three months of usage for free. Once you have signed up, download the ExpressVPN application to your computer, to your mobile device, and of course, to your Amazon Fire TV Stick. There you will have to log in with the credentials you created during the signup process. When you have signed in, connect to a server in the USA, and you will be able to enjoy the content in all your favorite applications like Hulu, FuboTV, NBC, CBS, Fox, Netflix, and more.
Did you know that you can use ExpressVPN on 3 devices at the same time? As a consequence, you can keep the VPN connection running constantly on the Fire TV, while you also use the same subscription on your computer and on your mobile device. This is quite brilliant, and it makes life much easier.
With the ExpressVPN
One more thing worth knowing about ExpressVPN is that they have a 30-day full refund policy, making you safe and thus you do not really have to worry before paying for the subscription.
Another VPN provider you could consider
If you do not want to use ExpressVPN, there is another VPN provider you might want to consider, and that is NordVPN. They have a very nice looking application available for your Fire TV Stick, and it all works in the same way as with ExpressVPN. There are a few differences, and one of the biggest differences is the price, as NordVPN is a bit cheaper if you decide to subscribe for the long run (a year or more). Another difference is how you can use NordVPN on 6 devices at the same time.
NordVPN also runs with a 30-day money back guarantee. And, just like with ExpressVPN, you can
A few years ago it was much harder to use the Amazon Fire TV abroad
As I mentioned in the start of the article, things were much more complicated a few years ago. If you have the first generation of the Amazon Fire TV Stick, it will not work with the VPN applications as mentioned above. The result was that you had to setup the VPN connection directly on your router, something quite hard to do, and it was impossible to those who didn’t actually have access to the router sharing the WiFi signal. Today, it is much easier as you can just install the VPN application on the Fire TV Stick, and you are ready to go.
What about the SmartDNS services of Unlocator?
