We live in an amazing time of instant access to the best movies, series, documentaries, programs, and all types of productions that can be transmitted easily to our devices, although you will enjoy most even on tv screens massive. So, why would we want to waive that when we travel, and to be forced to use the small screen of our phone, or pay the high rates of the hotels for the same series and movies on demand? Fortunately, you don’t have to do it, thanks to that there is the option to enjoy the Amazon Fire TV in the tv room of a hotel.
If you have a transmitter like the Fire TV Stick of Amazon or the Fire TV Stick 4K, you already have everything you need to be able to see your productions favorite wherever you are, as long as you have access to an internet service. It is easier than you think. Below, we explain how to view the Amazon Fire TV in the tv room of a hotel.
What you’ll need:
- Amazon Fire TV Stick or Fire TV Stick 4K
- Remote Control of Fire TV
- Plug cord, extension cord, HDMI, and the adapter that is included in the box.
- Optionally: a USB cable of extended length.
STEP 1: FIND THE HDMI PORT ON THE TV IN THE HOTEL
This first step is critical. The tv in your hotel room, you must have an HDMI port open that you can access, otherwise, the game is over. It first looks in the sides of the tv, or if you can access the back, check it out. Must be clearly labeled as HDMI 1, HDMI 2, etc, While you watch, take note to see if an HDMI cable is already connected to the tv. If that is the case, you may need to disconnect it in one of the following steps. Once you’ve found a free port, plug in your Fire TV Stick. If the space is scarce, use the extender cable to the HDMI that comes with your Fire TV Stick.
STEP 2: FIND A USB PORT OR A PLUG IN THE WALL
The USB cable that comes with your device Fire TV is designed to deflect the energy of an available USB port on a tv, but as not all tvs have one of these ports, you should always carry with you the USB wall adapter. If there is a USB port on the tv, take a look around the desktop or the console on which it is mounted to the tv: a growing number of hotels installed USB ports for power near the tvs for this type of situations. If that doesn’t work, it’s time to search for a nearby outlet. If there is a plug-free to the extent of the length of your USB cable, you may need to unplug something. Or if all else fails, add to your list a cable micro USB extra long could save you from upcoming headaches.
STEP 3: CHANGE THE INPUT SOURCE ON THE TV
Now is the time to turn on the tv and see if you can change the input source and choose the HDMI for your Fire TV Stick. The tv remote control generally has a input button (input) or a source button (source), but more and more hotels they move from the manufacturer’s remote control for one’s own, which can make it impossible to change input. If so, you can use the buttons on the same tv: the majority of the models will have an input selector button beside the power and volume buttons. You can place them to the sides of the tv, or along the bottom edge. If you succeed, the loading screen should appear with the logo of the Fire TV Stick.
If you have problems to change the entries (perhaps because the tv simply does not allow it), it is time to try plan B: If you found that the tv has a cable already plugged into an HDMI port, unplug it, and swap your Fire TV Stick. Of course, this means that you will lose all the tv channels of your hotel, but you can always re-swap it once you’ve seen what you wanted in your Fire.
STEP 4: CONNECT TO WIFI
If you have arrived until here, this is (hopefully) the last step. If your hotel uses a configuration of the Wifi standard, you will be presented with a list of the available networks. With the remote control of Fire TV, pick the one that matches the instructions you were given when you registered in the hotel and enter the password provided to you.
And that is all! Congratulations, you’re ready to begin watching your programs or favorite movies in your hotel room.
