Wow, this is an awesome article! I didn’t know you could jailbreak a firestick! My question is this, once you have done this, how does this benefit you? Obviously, you can get more options? Or maybe things for free that you might have to pay for? I am Amazon Prime so I am curious as to what this will do. I can see how this can save a lot of money on TV.
Thank you. These are things that go by people unless they are informed about it. Once you know how to get behind the scene which is described in this post, You can add more apps to the program like the Kodi app we installed to get free movies and TV shows in the Jailbreak process. You on the other hand, who is already a prime member, is capable of getting movies through your membership. But for someone who doesn’t, it helps relieve some financial stress if you are on a budget. But even if you are a prime member this can still help as far as adding more apps to your firestick. As I come across any more advantages I will most definitely share them.
This is an interesting thing that I’ve never heard about it before. Thanks for this thorough and informative post. It sounds very easy and cost-saving. I may consider getting one.
Keep up the good work 🙂
I think there are many others who don’t know about this. But that is my job I feel to get people aware of things that could benefit them or things that could mislead them. By all means, if you feel the need to cut back on expenses on your cable bills this is one great option.
I was unaware of Amazon Fire TV Stick, Being a new mom, It hard for me to go to theaters for movies. This could help me in watching new movies at home. Thanks for sharing!
You are very welcome. I just watched 3 movies this weekend that without it I would have had to go to the Red Box if I wanted to watch them. I like it because it is convenient and it is saving me a little money. It is a major plus if you want to watch at home and get away from the sometimes noisy theatre. Thank you for visiting.
OMG… loads to learn here. thanks for sharing as I never knew this can be done. very resourceful. will definitely visit your site often.
Thank you. There have been some updates on jailbreaking the fire stick since this post. If you will look at the other post How it will save you money, it is the most recent I have posted on using Kodi to download different apps to help you stream movies.
