Good morning @Pittsburgh50!


You should be able to stream to your Amazon Fire Stick no problem!


Check out this link for setup information.


Also, you shouldn't be charged for using the Fire Stick Smiley Happy


Happy streaming!

Re: Roku

no the apple tv 4 is free for three month signup. the firestick is free for a one month signup. funny thing, they said i would get my firestick in two to three weeks but i just got it today and i only signed up on the 30th.

You can use your Roku to watch DirectvNow......the only thing that is not supported on your Roku is the Dolby 5.1 sound. Only Apple TV (4thGen) and Amazon Fire TV is supported for that.
