Camping is a fun experience for all – being in nature, the long hours of lounging, doing things on your own and at your pace while surviving in the wild, and the short break you get from your daily busy life. 

With times changing, camping has evolved in all its aspects. So, now it’s possible to have the most comfortable camping experience – even having your television! Moreover, you can use your Fire Stick to watch anything you want while out on your camping trip. Continue to learn about using Fire Sticks. 

What is An Amazon Fire Stick?

An Amazon Fire Stick is a system that allows you to connect your television to the internet. Then, turn it into a device that can browse, stream and even support games. 

It runs on FireOS, a variant of Android. It means that most apps available on the Play Store are compatible with the Fire Stick and can be accessed on your television, enhancing your experience. 

All that you need to convert your television into an Internet TV using an Amazon Fire Stick is the following:

  • A TV set with an HDMI port
  • A good internet connection

How To Use The Fire Stick While Camping?

Since Fire Sticks require a television with proper HDMI ports, you might want to opt for RV camping.

While it is possible to set up your TV to be compatible with a Fire Stick, there are some things to be taken into consideration:

    • The RV television needs to be relatively large and requires an HDMI port.
    • Make sure you have a Wifi connection – whether through a modem, a portable hotspot, or the one on your phone. 
    • Remember to get all the necessary chargers and battery packs – for your phone, the television, and the Fire Stick remote. When camping or on trips, battery issues are the most common problems with devices. 
  • Cover all the technicalities for the content you want to watch. Get external hard drives containing files you want to watch (if you do not have a network connection), or make sure you have valid membership for streaming sites. 

How To Connect The Fire Stick To Your Television?

  1. Using an HDMI extender that may come shipped with the device, plug your Fire Stick into the HDMI port of your TV. 
  2. Turn your television ON and after clicking on ‘Source’, select the HDMI port you plugged in your Fire Stick. 
  3. Make sure that your Wi-Fi connection is within reach of the Fire Stick. 
  4. Plugin your Fire Stick to the power source and wait for it to power up.
  5. Follow the instructions to set up your account and enjoy endless content. 

I recommend getting an Amazon Prime membership as it gives you free access to streaming movies, games, TV shows, and Amazon Originals. You can also view any media uploaded on your Amazon Cloud service using a Firestick. 

However, it is not essential to have an Amazon Prime Membership to use Firestick. You can also opt for IPTV subscriptions. If you have several of those, consider installing Smart IPTV on your Firestick. You can also check out the instructions to install this app.

Can You Watch Normal TV Using The Fire Stick?

You can use your Amazon Fire Stick to stream regular TV with multiple free apps if you prefer standard television. This is a great way to stream traditional TV channels because it is not very often that you can access live TV without the need for a subscription or a satellite. 

Free streaming apps available on Fire TV to watch live television are Live Net TV and MobDro. 

Final Thoughts

Amazon Fire Sticks are a great way to make your TV watching experience fruitful. After all, there are hardly any days when you can relax and watch your favorite show during a rough week. Camping is supposed to be a vacation, so you have all the right to take time off and relax with your Fire TV. 

Many may say that introducing technology to a traditionally natural experience can ruin the experience of camping. However, there is nothing wrong with wanting to sit back and enjoy television after a long, hard day outdoors!
