The best way to pair your Firestick is to pair the remote with your Firestick. Whether you need to pair a new one or replace a lost or broken remote, the process is simple and can be done in just a couple of steps. With the right pairing, you'll be able to use all the functions and features of your Fire stick without any hassle.

Nowadays, the most popular way to set up a Smart TV or non-smart TV is to use an Amazon Firestick multimedia device that turns your ordinary TV into a Smart TV that allows you to watch Netflix and Amazon Prime. However, you might find it difficult to find the right balance between the two devices' remotes. With one remote, you can turn the TV on and off, and switch between local channels on TV. With the other remote, you can control your smart device settings. For example, you can browse Netflix on an Amazon FireTV stick.

Steps to Pair 

Pairing your Fire TV Stick remote to your new TV is a breeze because you’ll be connecting it to the Fire TV Stick that came with it, or any other Amazon device. You won’t need to pair it directly to your new TV because the remote will be controlling the TV’s features through the Amazon device that’s connected to your TV via HDMI. This means you’ll never have to search for product codes again or go through the hassle of connecting a remote control to your TV like you did before.
