How to Connect an Amazon Fire TV Stick to a Hisense Smart Television

Connecting an Amazon Fire TV Stick to a Hisense Smart TV is easy with just a few simple steps. As someone who has set up Fire TV Sticks on Hisense TVs many times, I’ll walk you through everything you need to know.

What You Need

  • Hisense Smart TV with HDMI port
  • Amazon Fire TV Stick
  • Fire TV Stick power adapter
  • Fire TV Stick remote
  • HDMI cable

Step-by-Step Guide

1. Plug In the Fire TV Stick

The first step is to plug the Fire TV Stick into the wall outlet using the included power adapter. Be sure to plug the adapter directly into the wall rather than a power strip to ensure consistent power.

2. Connect the Fire TV Stick to Your Hisense TV’s HDMI Port

On the back of your Hisense TV you’ll see multiple HDMI ports. Pick an open HDMI port and connect the Fire TV Stick using the included HDMI extender cable. This connects the Fire TV Stick to your TV to transfer video and audio signals.

3. Turn On Your Hisense TV and Select the Correct HDMI Input

Grab your Hisense TV remote and turn on your TV. Then press the input or source button to change to the HDMI input that corresponds to the port you plugged the Fire Stick into. For example, if you used HDMI 2, change to HDMI 2 input. You should now see the Fire TV Stick home screen.

4. Connect the Fire TV Stick to Your WiFi

Follow the on-screen prompts to connect your Fire TV Stick to your WiFi network. Just select your network and enter your WiFi password when prompted.

5. Register Your Fire TV Stick with Your Amazon Account

Link your existing Amazon account to your new Fire TV Stick. If you don’t have an account, you can create one during setup. Linking allows you to access your Amazon content like Prime Video.

Once connected to WiFi and linked to your Amazon account, your Fire TV Stick will install any updates. After it restarts, you’re all set up!
