  1. Thank you for all the great advice. I just got my new Firestick the other day. Hooking up was a breeze, thank God. However, I learned real quick that my Firestick had no how to booklet (thus is why the box was so small, lol), to get me rolling. So, here I am on the internet trying to figure out the basics that still has me scratching my head. Thankfully I finally came across your sight with exactly what I need to do. Nothing I read on line prior to finding your sight said anything about Downloading the Downloader App. Whatttt!!! I don’t get it. That makes so much since. Just hope it all comes together tomorrow when I try it.
    Again thank you, I actually think I’ll be able to get further now.
    Sincerely, Sheila
