Unpack the Firestick. With the package, you will get the HDMI and micro-USB port. You should put all the pieces together. The micro-USB cable goes into the power adapter. The other end of the cable goes into the Firestick. Insert the Firestick into the HDMI port on your Smart TV. Remember in which HDMI port you’ve inserted the Firestick. You will need that later. The power adapter goes in a power outlet.
Now, it is time for the easy part. Turn on your TV and go to the home screen. Select the HDMI input channel, the one you inserted the Firestick in. The TV will start loading the screen. This may take a while. But, that’s completely normal. Loading the Firestick for the first time takes a while.
Once the TV registers the Firestick go ahead and prepare the Firestick remote. You need to put batteries. Two AAA’s are what you need. You get them with the package. Now that you are all done, this is the screen you are going to see. Press on the Pause/Play button.
Choose the language you like. Confirm when you are done.
Connect the Firestick to Wi-Fi. It will automatically scan for nearby networks. Select your WiFi network and enter the password as required.
Now, the Firestick will ask for an account. You can sign in with your current Amazon account.
Wait for a couple of seconds for the Firestick to register. This won’t take long.
When the Firestick is done registering, choose “Save passwords” if you don’t want to type the password every time you log in. This is a nice feature.
You can select Parental controls if you want, or you can skip that part. Now, all the settings are done. You will finally get to use the Firestick.
