Setting up your Fire Stick | 2021
Firestick initial setup
You have to plug the power cable into the wall socket and the other side of the cable is connected to the Amazon Fire TV stick.
You cannot connect the Fire Stick power cable to the TV’s USB port. You should be getting the power from the wall outlet, not the TV. The Amazon Fire TV Stick itself plugs directly into your TV’s HDMI port.
There is an HDMI extender that comes with the Amazon Fire Stick and is optional to use.
Now you should have the amazon fire stick connected to the hdmi port of your TV, the power cable should be connected to the fire stick while it is plugged into the wall socket for power.
Go to the correct hdmi channel on your tv, and you will see the amazon fire tv screen.
Next, you will need to connect to your wifi network and enter your password.
Once you connect your amazon Fire Stick to your wifi, the screen will ask for your Amazon login information.

You can register an Amazon account. Create a free account here, if you don’t already have an Amazon account.
You can use a free account or an Amazon Prime account. Both let you get to the homepage, after which you can use Kodi.
If you decide to create an Amazon account on your computer or phone, it will not ask you for credit card information.
Once you sign in with your Amazon account, you’ll be on the Amazon home page.
Once you launch Kodi (for the first time), let Kodi go through the process of installing its apps for at least 3-5 minutes.
After loading the first time, it should only take 2 minutes to load when you watch again.
Note: Always give Kodi 2 to 3 minutes to load its hardware before clicking any button on the Fire Stick remote. Failure to do so may result in Kodi not working properly for apps that are not fully installed. After the initial setup, you should be ready to stream whatever you want.
