The guide below will show you How To Set Up Firestick on the Fire TV Stick Lite.









However, these steps will be similar to the Fire TV Cube, Firestick 4k, or any other Fire TV device.









Your Firestick or Fire TV upon purchase includes the following items:









  • Fire TV Stick or Fire TV
  • Alexa Voice Remote with 2 AAA Batteries
  • Power Cord
  • HDMI Extender (not included with Fire TV)









You will also need to prepare the following:









  • A compatible HDTV with an HDMI port
  • Stable internet connection
  • Active Amazon account to be used for the setup









Step 1
Remove contents from the package and insert the two AAA batteries into the remote.









Step 2
Plug the power cord into an outlet and into your Firestick.

















Step 3
Choose an HDMI port and plug the Firestick into your TV. If you have an HDMI port that is difficult to get to, use the provided HDMI extender.

















IMPORTANT: It is NOT recommended to use a USB port on your television as the power source for the Firestick.  You should use the provided power adapter and plug it into an actual power outlet to avoid problems with the device.









Step 4
Select the HDMI Input with your television remote that you plugged the Firestick into.
