Using Netflix on your Amazon Fire TV/Stick
Welcome to Netflix on your Amazon Fire TV and Fire TV Stick! Use this article to learn about Netflix features and how to set up and sign out of your account. If you’re unsure if your device supports Netflix, follow the steps on the “Set up Netflix” tab to attempt to locate the Netflix app.
Netflix is available on the Amazon Fire TV and Fire TV Stick in the US, the UK, Germany, Austria, and Japan.
On most devices, Netflix lets you browse through rows of TV shows and movies, including a row dedicated to your My List selections. Each row represents a category (Comedies, Dramas, TV shows, etc) that we present to you based on what you’ve watched.
Older devices may not have rows of movie categories, but do allow you to scroll through My List, which you can create using the Netflix website.
Voice Search for the Amazon Fire TV and Fire stick is not currently supported with the Netflix app.
Most devices are capable of streaming Netflix in high definition on fast Internet connections and will play Netflix in their maximum supported resolution (see our Internet Connection Speed Recommendations for more information).
Subtitles & Alternate Audio:
Learn how to enable subtitles, closed captions, and alternate audio (including 5.1 surround sound), which are available on many TV shows and movies. To check if your device supports 5.1 audio, go to any Netflix original series to see if there is a 5.1 audio option. If not, your device may not support this feature, or it may need to be turned on. Many devices will let you customize the appearance of subtitles and captions. Older devices will display subtitles and captions in their default appearance or are not configured to display subtitles.
