Are you a frequent traveler? Do you sometimes feel frustrated that you cannot watch your favorite streaming shows or hear your preferred music channel until you return home? Most hotels offer free internet access to their guests via Wi-Fi or through cable connections. However, when it comes to streaming your favorite shows frorm your devices to the hotel’s TV, you’ll find that most gadgets that don’t have a built-in display usually can’t bypass the password-protection used by hotels. So then how can you watch streaming shows while traveling? There is a way around this! Just use a streaming media player like the Amazon Fire TV stick!

The Amazon Fire TV Stick is an extremely hotel friendly device that allows you to view online streaming networks without any restrictions. Simply connect it to the HDMI port of the TV. The stick receives power via a USB cable that you can connect to the USB port of the TV or power it via the included adapter. Switch on the TV, use the onscreen keyboard to select your streaming network and input its password. The hotel’s captive portal appears after this. Click on the `accept’ button using the remote, and log on to the net to view your streaming videos.
