Amazon Fire TV Stick Box

Inside the fire tv box, you'll find a USB cord, a power adapter, the fire tv stick and an HDMI extender. The extender will allow you to hook your fire tv stick up to an HDMI port that is difficult to access.

Amazon Fire TV Stick Whats in the Box

The fire tv stick plugs into one of the available HDMI port in your TV. There is no need to have a Smart TV. You just need an availble HDMI port and a nearby USB port. The USB cable plugs into the side of the fire tv stick and then into the USB port on your TV. This provides the power to the fire tv stick. If your TV doesn't have a USB port, then the cable can be plugged into a standard power outlet. Plugging into a power outlet will also insure that your fire tv stick (and Directable app) are always running.
