[Music]

all right guys get you zoomed in on the

screen rate and now so I know I have a

lot of subscribers more advanced users

that are looking for some advanced

firestick stuff this is just for

beginners new subscribers those that

have not watched any or very few of my

videos and are just a little confused

may not be able to maneuver around like

they want to this is just a beginner's

guide folks I am doing an advanced guide

to the Amazon fire stick where you can

really customize your fire stick I'll be

doing that video it's already ready to

be filmed and edited so make sure you

hit that notification bell down below so

that you're notified for that but this

is just for beginners guys this is right

out of the box plugged your fire stick

in now what do I do

all right let's get right to it so when

you plug your fire stick in it goes into

your HDMI slot in the back and then

you're gonna have a power supply that

plugs into the wall and a remote that

looks just like this a little blurry I

don't look close to the camera but this

remote here is pretty fantastic it has

everything from a power button which

will also control your TV and volume

control up and down it has a microphone

you can search for things just by

talking into it it's got the little

circle cursor that goes around you've

got the back button home button three

dashes which you use quite often and

then play fast-forward and then your

mute button all on your remote it's very

sleek it's very small as you can see

right here not much to it guys very very

simple easy to use the fire stick is a

very easy device to use and let's talk

about a few things so if you go when you

first plug it in you're gonna come to

this home screen okay if you go left of

the home screen to the search you can

search for all kinds of things for

example if you want to add your Netflix

to your Amazon fire stick you just type

into Netflix click on that and you'll be

able to pull that up right there so if

you've got your Netflix already and you

want to keep it you can add that to your

device just by doing that what else can

you add well as you can see here I added

you to

I've had Firefox and then these free

film and TV channels which are fantastic

I've got all kinds of them on here guys

I'll just show you what I have on my

fire stick so you can kind of get an

idea of the types of things that you can

have so I'm just gonna hit the home

button and that'll take you right back

to this main screen just like that if

you hold the home button down which is

right here for three seconds okay 1 2 3

it will pull this up right here and this

is kind of an important screen to have

and it is hidden ok just by holding that

home button it looks like a little home

3 seconds you're gonna come to this

alright so you've got apps sleep mode

and you definitely want to put your fire

stick to sleep it will wake up just by

pushing any button but it rests your

fire stick and keeps it optimized ok

plus the stuff isn't running in the

background constantly and you like and

using up your internet space and some

people only have so much data on their

internet that they can use and so you

definitely want to put it to sleep

mirroring which gives you the ability to

take your phone or your computer or your

laptop and project it onto the screen a

very very cool feature that will be in

my advanced video that I'll be doing

later and then settings where you can

set up your fire stick to get the best

in the most out of it but let's talk

about what apps I have on my fire stick

right now alright so just go over to

apps click on apps it'll take just a

second it will pull up all the apps I

don't keep all of my apps necessarily on

my fire stick I put them in the cloud so

it doesn't take up space my fire stick

only has 6 gigabytes of space I'll be

talking about gigabytes of space and all

that in my advanced video as well this

is just a tutorial setup so these are my

videos here I'm sorry my my apps that I

have downloaded on here right now ok

these are ad blockers live TV apps more

live TV apps like movie apps sports apps

things like that and then that's what I

like and then some really good movie

apps right here cinema and Morpheus

those are really really good

and then you've got Pluto TV and to be

so this is a good way to cut the cord

guys eventually you get one of these and

you want to play with it a little bit

and decide whether or not you want to

keep cable you don't you I don't I cut

the cord

I don't need cable anymore because I

have everything I need right here on my

fire stick what a fire stick is guys

basically is it takes a regular TV just

a normal TV and turns it into a smart TV

that's all a fire stick is it's got some

great plugins and some things that you

can do but that's all it is so these are

the apps that I use one of the TV apps I

really like I actually have a video on

ik is this one right here it's called

Pluto TV if you click on Pluto TV you'll

get your you'll see that it has tons and

tons of channels I mean and movie

channels TV channel tons of channels

that you can watch completely free if

you head over here and just scroll down

just like a regular cable provider I'm

gonna turn the volume down and it is

completely it was it is completely free

does not cost anything now I know that

Pluto TV is not available in all

countries and I am sorry for that is not

much I can do about that there's other

options and I'll be talking about those

in some of my other videos on how to get

those TV shows and movies and so forth

in other countries but I do know the

Pluto TV is strictly for the United

States and a few other select countries

okay but I'm just scrolling good to show
