The Amazon Fire Stick is an amazing device when you come to realize what it can do.

Down to its very essence, it is a stick you plug into your TV, and it will turn it from a traditional TV into a Smart TV.

This means that you can now access various streaming services, such as Netflix, Hulu or HBO GO. More so, you can also install apps on your TV now.

However, it does have slightly less power than the TV Box, probably because of the reduced size. Of course, all of these facilities can only be achieved if you have an Amazon account.

If you’ve accessed this guide, then you are probably wondering how to set up an Amazon Fire Stick from scratch.

As such, this step-by-step guide will show you how to completely install your Amazon Fire Stick from A to Z.

How do I register my Amazon Fire Stick?

Before registering per se, you need to set up the device. As such, you must check that you have all the necessary tools:

  • A compatible TV that has HD or UHD plus an HDMI port
