Sales for the Amazon Fire TV/Stick this year have exceeded all expectations, with competitors Apple and Roku having had to seriously up their game with their own latest streaming devices.

How to access American content on Amazon from anywhere…
1. The first step in unblock American channels on Amazon Fire TV Stick is creating an American Amazon account. Go to Amazon.com and create an American account using an American address if you don’t already have one (any American address well do). Once done, got to Your Account -> Manage Your Content and Devices -> Country Settings and set country to United States.
2. Now that you have an American Amazon account, you have to change your online location but neither Amazon Fire TV or Fire TV Stick have a VPN client option. Therefore you’ll need to get yourself a USA configured VPN Router from Liberty Shield (click here) for only £12.99 with Worldwide Shipping.
Of course Amazon Fire TV isn’t the only way to get all these great American TV services on your big screen TV. Roku and Apple TV devices have many of the same apps and can be connected just as easily to our USA VPN Routers.
If you prefer to watch on tablets, computers or smartphones then that’s also done easily; and with output options through the likes of Google Chromecast they still offer a way to get video to your big screen.
