Just been having a look..Bit of a minefield with so many different 'providers'.. Does your firestick have a built-in VPN?

ive been using it for a number of years, i get it thru a firestick that i can unplug and bring to Bar Hill, or even.... India... all you need is a decent internet supplier, sadly with Sky you require a VPN but virgin is great... you can get a 24 hour trial if you have a firestick


There are rather a lot of firesticks mate..Some details please?

you might not need a firestick if you have a smart TV... there are lots of guys on E-bay just message them and they will explain it all to you, i use the firestick so i can take it wherever i go, you really only need the VPN if you are on sky internet... my friend is on sky so i had to pay 35 for a VPN for her..
i get all the games all PPV boxing ect, and theres plenty golf and even the Indian cricket league is there.. about 6000 movies and thousands of tv series, as well as all the sky channels...

Is this the same as Kodi ?

I'm guessing the firestick is running Kodi which there, are lots of instructions for on the Web. I got fed up with it as the streams kept getting blocked and you had the reinstall the latest setup.


Selling firesticks and media players with Kodi preinstalled was made illegal a while ago. No idea what the 55 sub is about as I haven't come across that. As I've no interest in sports I just rely on downloads of films and series for stuff not on live TV.

Kodi became a nuisance I don't have it now.  But a friend of mine has IPTV, I think she paid about 120 to have it set up and then it's an annual fee.  She's tried to persuade me to get it, but I'm thinking it must be dodgy ! 😀
