How to Jailbreak Amazon Fire TV Stick – With the advent of better technology for streaming devices, it is no wonder that people find ways to circumvent payment walls and other restrictions. After all, free is better. It is the case for jailbreaking devices as well.

What is Jailbreaking?

Break free! That is the motto at play right here. You might have heard the term or read about it online. It sounds rather illegal.

According to the Digital Millennium Copyright Act set by the Library of Congress in 2012, it is not.

Some people will still claim that the action is contrary to the rules established. Others believe that it is fair to gain access to privileges that they may not ordinarily find through their device. Especially if they have to spend quite a buck to get said device.

So what exactly is jailbreaking?

You might have noticed that people usually use the term in connection with an Apple device. It is because Apple provides one of the most secure mobile and computing devices in the market today.

A jailbreak, in essence, unlocks a device and gives it capabilities that the manufacturer did not originally intend for it to have.

What is the Amazon Fire TV Stick?

When an idea becomes profitable, everyone wants a piece of the money cake. In this case, Amazon’s Fire TV Stick is a new home streaming device. The setup is simple; you have to plug the device directly to the HDMI port of your TV (similar to how a Chromecast or Apple TV). Once connected, it gives you access to your favorite movies, games, music, tv channels, and more.

If you are wondering why these streaming devices are suddenly gaining popularity, then one word: portability.

The fire stick, for example, holds all your content that you can carry it with you wherever you go. If you are traveling abroad, you only have to find a TV with an HDMI port and voila! Instant access to your favorite
entertainment.
