My stepson has offered to buy me a fire stick so I can watch some films and Serials that I really want to see.
However ! I wonder if I subscribe will I be able to set it up on my own ? Is it difficult ? I can follow basic instructions.

No as I remember its quite easy. I set it up without help so must have been simple. I had to cancel though as it wouldn't work for me. All I got was a message saying insufficient band width.

sodapop were you with Virgin?

I am with BT. I know it’s not a big outlay I just can’t keep it going if I have to wait until I can see him again. Poor.

As I remember, you just plug it in and off you go. If you have issues, which I think is unlikely, you could ring Amazon Customer Services and they will talk you through setting it up.

Oh, thank you Doodledog if I need someone to talk me through if I get stuck I can talk to them. I think I might be ok. Will give it a go.

The Amazon Firestick is really easy to set up.

I found it easy to set up and it is very useful. I don't speak to it, just use the remote.

Amazon are usually really helpful with any issues in my experience.
