Attention, FireStick Users!
Governments and ISPs constantly monitor your online activity, and accessing copyrighted content on your Fire TV Stick could lead to serious trouble. Currently, your IP is visible to everyone. I strongly recommend getting the best FireStick VPN to mask your IP address and securely stream your favorites.
I personally use ExpressVPN, the fastest and most secure VPN available. Not only is it easy to install on any device, it comes with a risk-free 30-day money-back guarantee. Plus, if you're not 100% satisfied, you can always get a refund. ExpressVPN is currently also offering a whopping 3 extra months free on their annual plan!

The recently installed apps are placed at the end. So, navigate this row to the right with your remote. If you have less than 20 apps, you will find Fawesome TV right here. Click the app and open it.
If you have more than 20 apps, you will need to expand the Your Apps & Channels section. You can do that by clicking See All either on the far left or far right (check the image below).

There are a bunch of icons on the left menu (we will explore them in a bit). The home option in the left menu is selected by default when you open the app.
Video content is available in several rows of categories. Recently Watched is the first row. Scroll down to explore other categories including Top Picks, Browse By Genre, New TV Arrivals, Classic TV, Weekly Watchlist, Foreign Language TV, and more

While Fawesome TV is a great way to stream some quality movies and shows, it does lack on some fronts. For example, it does not let you mark videos as favorites. The only playlist you have is the Recently Watched category. So, if you want to watch a video later, you must play it at least once so that it is added to your Recently Watched category.
While Fawesome TV is officially available for FireStick/Fire TV via Amazon Store, it is not supported on any other devices; not even Google Play Store. The service does not also have a Kodi addon.
