It all depends what you want to do with it really

You'll need a VPN if you plan on doing anything questionable with these.

Send a message via Skype™ to Kintarō Hattori
So got talking to an agent last night and he said my marketplace was set to .com instead of .co.uk which is where the issue was.

You certainly don't want anyone knowing you'll be doing anything like this.

Just on this. Can you get US Netflix working on your fire stick? No matter what i do for it it's picking up I'm using a VPN. Works perfect on all other android and pcs. Just not the fire stick.

Getflix is useless for that.

Express VPN works for me on my firestick.
