Please notice that the FireTV player app will work on most modern FireTV sticks in the market available today
This user manual will guide you how to install the NoviSign digital signage player app for Amazon FireStick.
The Amazon Fire Stick player app is actually our Android APK player app.

Amazon FireTV

Installing the app

On the FireTV stick there is only one way to install the app: from the Amazon appstore. At the moment there is no way to install from a USB stick or from our website.
Please notice: Due to the Amazon appstore mechanism, it seems that the app cannot be upgraded from the app store (like you can do with the Google Play store market of Android devices). Hence, the only way to upgrade the app is to uninstall and then re-install it. Well, at least until we find a better, more convenient solution for this issue.
Another limitation is that FireTV sticks cannot play content in portrait mode, only in landscape, so please take that into consideration.

Here is a video that takes you step-by-step, showing you all actions need to be performed during the configuration & installation process until broadcasting your content over the FireTV stick:

Configuring & setting up the FireTV stick

So, let’s go step-by-step:

  1. Connect your FireTV stick to power from one side and to the HDMI port of your TV (using an HDMI cable) from the other side. Insert the batteries to your remote control (no way to use a mouse here).
  2. The Fire stick will boot. Please follow the on-screen instructions to move forward with the installation. The first thing will be choosing your language, so please do.
  3. If you get a question of how to setup the device (with an app or with the remote control), then choose the remote option to make it more simple.
  4. Now, you’ll need to choose your WiFi network, since Fire sticks do not have an Ethernet cable port. Type the network password and then press “Connect”. After the connection has been established, the Fire stick will check for new software updates and if there are, it will start downloading them.
  5. Afterwards, it might take you again to step 3 and it might download more updates, so do not be surprised by that.
  6. Once all updates are over, it will ask you to login with your Amazon user or create a new one (in case you don’t have one). When choosing to login with your existing Amazon account, you’ll be offered to choose either to sign in online or sign in with QR code. Assuming you do not have your smartphone with you, just choose the sign in online. Now just press the 3 lines button in your remote control and then you’ll be able to type your Amazon user and password in order to login. Once completed, you’ll get the “Successfully registered” and a welcome message.
  7. No need to save your WiFi password to Amazon. Skip the restore option coming next.
  8. Choose your TV brand. You can choose the “Amazon basics” as a default. This option might provide extra functionality for the Fire stick depends on the connected TV display.
  9. Next you’ll be facing questions about the sound and some buttons calibration thing. You’ll finnaly get a message that your Fire stick is all setup and then you might see an “Optimizing” message.
  10. Then the Fire stick will really start. It might offer you some 30 days offer which you can skip by choosing “Not now”.
  11. Next few more questions (we’re getting close to the end!).
  12. It may ask you who is using the FireTV, so you can choose your own Amazon user.
  13. Finally you’ll get to the Amazon FireTV menu!
