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!

There are two versions of Video & TV Cast, free and paid.
The free version of TV Cast comes with limited features. For instance, you’ll need to watch ads to cast videos, there’s no ad-blocker when playing videos from the website, etc.
On the other hand, the paid version of Video & TV Cast comes in under $5. Note that the price for Android and iOS versions of the apps vary, and often there’s a discount going on to help you save some bucks.
Paid version comes with unlimited features like a playbar / remote, unlimited personal media, ad-blocker, bookmarks, desktop mode, and more.
I recommend trying the free version of the app. And then, if it works to your expectations, purchase the paid variant to make your casting experience entirely convenient.
