Not at the moment. I have seen also that prime day is happening later than usual this year around September but the 4k version might pop up from some sellers for a reduced price before then,(fingers crossed)

Netflix (VPN allows you to change region and access more content)
Prime Video
MUBI (free for college/film/art students, or 1 month free)
Disney+

Also Epix Now, Sling TV, Directv, Vudu(free movies & TV with Ads) Britbox, Cbs All Access, Shudder.. I've probably forgotten a few more. Accounts are cheap if ya know where to look �� All work with Smartdnsproxy ðŸ‘
Thanks for the extra sources. I may look in to a few of them as I hadnt considered Sling etc. Honestly the Firestick is the first device Ive owned that sometimes I feel overwhelmed by content choice. Plus Spotify/Apple Music integration and Alexa smart home control make it a great piece of kit.

Side ''bargain''. I cant stop singing the praises of HBO. HBO Max is due to launch next week which is the full back catalog of HBO with Warner's backing - a huge amount of content including Friends (and the reboot) etc. I got an email about a 1 year deal for anyone looking to sign up at 11.99 dollars a month for the first year. Must have US CC.

Last Chance to Save
Last call for this offer! Preorder HBO Max and get access instantly on May 27. Even better? You can start streaming HBO NOW while you wait.
$14.99 (normally) $11.99* / month for 12 months. Cancel anytime

I sub via HULU so cant avail. You need a VPN or Smart DNS to access HBO from Ireland. Ive no issues connecting with ExpressVPN

If you use a browser to access Amazon US, you can look up the apps by searching as you would a product, you should have the option to download or ''deliver'' the content on the right hand side, choose your device, very simple.

I have downloaded Pluto TV. But it keeps giving error that this app is not available in your region.

Any idea what could be wrong? I have tried using US VPN.

Get an app called "Apps2Fire" for your phone (assuming your android). Apps that you have on your phone can then be installed on your Fire stick once they're both on your home network.

heres a demo https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zuDCwzO2CGw

look into "filelinked" for Firestick also...

You could probably install an app like file commander on on the fire TV stick and link it to Google drive. Then you could upload the APK files from either your iPhone or any other device with Google drive access.

Once you have them in there you should be able to access them in the file commander app and install them.

Easy Fire Tools is also brilliant. Install on phone and connect wireless to your fire stick, no need to install an app on the fire stick, it will just auto install whatever app you send from your phone to it automatically.

Some filelinked stores are great but not all the apps are accessible even from different stores. I personally find my fone quicker,typing etc... but downloader is a great tool too.

Tanya's store is huge and probably 1 of the best, Average Ed 47713348 & Electrical MD 85810914 are nice back ups. Kevin Porteous on YouTube has great videos up all the time, no filelinked store but you can save his website in downloader for 1 click downloads to tonnes of apks.
