I think kindle and Fire products are not eligible for export to countries without Amazon official releases like UK, Germany and Japan.

Have you solved your problem? it depends on the app or source. Mine runs very smooth.

Netflix said they were going to block some VPN service. Not sure if this is the case or something else. Try the other free TV apps to see if it works under viewqwest vpn. If they work, means netflix is blocked. I dont use the service so can't help with configuration. Find out if you can change the IP address of the VPN and try netflix again.

If you have a Prime account with US address then u should be fine. Amazon pre-input Fire TV before sending out to you. I have Prime account with US address, no issue at all.

apps on front page

I noticed that apps that were previously side-loaded now are visible and accessible on the Home under Apps. Instead of last time had to be accessed through the long steps of 'Manage Applications... Launch App'.

Love this.

Does anyone run Kodi on the Fire TV Stick though? My Phoenix channel not displaying well anymore, whereas still fine on my Windows laptop.

What are your favourite side-loaded apps to run on Fire TV/ Stick?
