Anyone know if Amazon Fire TV will work in Canada?

I could care less for the prime stuff, I just want it mainly for XBMC.
I know there is other solutions but this is a pretty straight plug and play once configured considering it comes with a remote etc kind of like the Apple TVs ($$$$$)

Are you on WiFi or Ethernet? How's the WiFi is you're using that?sjgill wrote: ↑Aug 19th, 2014 6:26 amI have this working with XBMC, unblock US and stream both Hulu and netflix (launch the apps inside XBMC and from the main menu). Was about 20 minutes total from unboxing to being fully working with XBMC. Just look for the pre build GUi tools such as adbfire and you can load XBMC easily. It's replaced both my Boxee and Apple TV. Just make sure you load Gotham 13.2 beta 3 or higher as it addresses some playback issues.

Just got one on eBay for $120 shipped which is fine by me. I only use Netflix (with unblockus) and XBMC and both work great. Easy setup, solid remote, and its nice and fast. I have used XBMC on ATV2's, OUYA and cheap china android sticks and the Fire is my box of choice due to its clean interface, speed and remote. Only thing stopping me getting another to replace the slow ATV2 is lack of AirPlay but that's not exactly the Fire's fault.

Any resolutions? I've been going nutty here trying to get the Roku to play the US channels, but I can't use my VPN on it (Hotspot shield). Was really hoping that fire tv might do it. Anyone else using HSS successfully?guppy98 wrote: ↑Sep 26th, 2014 10:17 pmHow are you guys getting prime to work on the FireTV? I just picked one up and..
I'm using smartDNSProxy
I have my prime account set to a US address, etc.
Prime works fine on my PC in a browser (using DNS proxy of course)
However...it doesn't work on the FireTV. Just doesn't play the content. Can't seem to figure out why though given it works on the PC on the same network as the fireTV.
I did get XBMC loaded no problem though and WOW, what a great experience...The GUI is so fast. But I'd really like to get the prime content going too.
