A lot of folks will find this stuff daunting and will more than likely
give up after reading a few lines of a tutorial

It's easy when you know though

got two of these on black friday

outside of an nividea shield these are unbelievable value for money and miles
better than most android boxes (some at near double the price)


I use it for netflix, prime and youtube mainly...havent used a vpn yet as I'm not overly interested in the itv/bbc player though I do have the rte player

Brilliant for iptv also

Do you guys need a VPN to watch Amazon Prime content on the 4K fire stick? I have one That I got last year and it won’t play any Prime content due to location issues. When I contacted Amazon about it they said I would need a basic Firestick in order to be able to watch Prime in Ireland.

No

Add a parcel motel address to your amazon account and change your region on the website to U.K. then message them via chat and tell them you’re in Belfast Northern Ireland and can they put you in the U.K. library
This should work and if it doesn’t close the chat and keep trying until you get a nice agent that will switch it over for you

I've had it 2 years or so. I could only use it on mobile devices until recently. Smart TV & Virgin router wouldn't let me set DNS. Virgin router started acting up recently on WIFI so bought Google Wi-Fi. This let me set the DNS. I now have all my US stuff like HULU & HBO running alongside UK iplayer hub etc without having to switch a VPN on & off. The 2 year plan is a bargain

Virgin are a pain in the hoop alright, I find getflix smart dns better than a vpn as it’s harder for iplayer etc to detect
Setting the dns on the router is handy but some people think it’s risky running all your traffic through getflix but I’ve never had an issue

Do I need to change my billing address to UK in order to use VPN On BBC iPlayer, ITV Hub etc.

I have a VPN already, but have no interest in Amazon Prime.

For RTE player the last 3 posts here explain how to install. It works a treat and the best part is there's no ads

For Amazon Prime I just got into Amazon chat and they fixed it instantly. I wasn’t asked where I was or anything. They just flicked a switch.

It’s pot luck with them on chat tbh some people have had to make numerous attempts and others get lucky like yourself
