* Amazon Fire TV does not have built-in VPN or MediaStreamer DNS functionality. In order to use ExpressVPN on your Amazon Fire TV, you need to connect your Amazon Fire TV to a VPN-enabled virtual router or router. This tutorial will teach you how to do that.

Note: If you want your Amazon Fire TV streaming media player to stream content from a specific country, then use the same country for your VPN server address and your Amazon Country Settings
