I use Amazon Prime, Crave, Netflix, and Kodi on them. On Kodi I have the NHL.tv app so I can watch/listen to hockey in bed to fall asleep.
You are pretty much using the same streaming services that I'd like to. Is your Fire TV Stick running the Crave or CraveTV app? I picked up a the Fire TV 4k Stick today, and it appears to have the old Crave TV app on it, and appears to be missing content on it.

I'm trying to side load the Crave app, but Apps2Fire and Downloader don't seem to be working for me.

What's the issue or error? Where are you getting the official APK from? It might be corrupt or incompatible.

I don't have the 4k one yet. Just ordered.

My current firetv stick has the old Crave. My understanding was that the new Crave app will be ported to all the systems over time, not all at once.


Per Crave FAQ:
Q: I am trying to access Crave via Xbox One/Samsung Smart TV/Amazon Fire TV, and it isn’t available. How do I get this content?
A:In the coming weeks, the all-new Crave will be available on all partner platforms.


No idea what coming weeks means :)

I managed to get Apps2Fire to work and transferred the app from my phone to the stick, but the screen looks like it's stretching portrait mode to landscape.

Yeah, it seems like I've been waiting a couple of years for them to release an Android TV app. All searches lead to a canned response something to the effect of them working on brining Crave to more devices.

I saw Crave TV being advertised on the page for the 4K stick, and thought that I had finally found a device supported most of what I stream. Perhaps I should have given Apple TV a try, I believe the new Crave, Netflix, Amazon Prime and NHL Live work on it.

Crave TV works on Firestick fine. The new version just came out last month, so it makes sense they will take awhile to get it out there. They still don't have one for PS4 yet. Some day they will get it together.

I'm sure they will get it updated in decent time on the firestick. Im not even sure if Crave streams in 4k though.

The NHL Gamecenter is the one that bugs me the most, but the Kodi workaround is ok.

I got my fire stick today. Only ordered it yesterday morning, so not bad considering what's going on with Canada Post.

Since my country is set to USA on my amazon account, it defaulted to the US version. Giving me all US apps. This will be fun to play with. Just need to set up my smart DNS tonight.

I got mine from the early posted ad by contacting them.

They only gave me a $20 refund instead of $20+tax

Not a big deal but it's pathetic for a company this big to be greedy over $2 in tax.

I installed stbemu but it doesn't want to run:( it says this app is not associated with your amazon account. anyone can help me.
I ordered three of them, I tried on two of them and both of them you can't run stbemu. I didn't have any problem with older firestick basic.
anyone got stbemu installed?

Yes. Use your Fire TV's voice activated remote to get Alexa to buy you a Dreamlink box from Amazon.
