Setting up an Amazon Fire TV Stick

Amazon’s Fire TV Stick is a great choice for watching VNET Fiber TV. The user-friendly remote and HDMI stick system allows VNET Fiber subscribers to effortlessly access and watch their favorite TV entertainment.

Here’s how to use your Amazon Fire TV Stick:


VNET Fiber works with Amazon Fire TV 2nd Generation and newer, including Fire TV Stick and Cube. To get started you’ll need:

  • VNET Fiber Internet
  • an Amazon account (Don’t have one? Sign up here.)
  • a TV or other display with an HDMI port
  • an HDMI cable (on 4K capable devices you need an HDMI 2.0 or later)

To install:

  1. Plug the power adapter into an electrical outlet, and the Fire TV device into your TV’s HDMI port.
  2. Use the USB cable to connect the power adapter and Fire TV device.
  3. Install the batteries in the remote. If the remote doesn’t automatically pair with your Fire TV, press and hold the Home button for 10 seconds.
  4. Use the Source/Input button on your TV remote to locate the HDMI signal for your Fire TV device.
  5. Follow the prompts on the Fire TV startup screen to finish set-up. To install All, select the Search icon (left of Home at top of screen) and search for All Highlight and select Download. Once finished, select Open to launch All
