Looking to use your Amazon Fire Stick (or Fire TV) in Mexico? Then this is the guide for you. I’m going to show you how in just a few simple steps.
If you’re travelling or living in Mexico and you’ve taken your Amazon Fire Stick with you then you’ve probably been disappointed to find it doesn’t work as you would expect.
If you try to use most of the apps you’ll notice they don’t work. The reason for this is because you’re outside your home country.
It doesn’t matter if you have an American, British, Indian or any other kind of Fire Stick.
The way to get around this is to use a VPN app from a provider like ExpressVPN which I’ll explain below.
You need a VPN for your Fire Stick in Mexico!
If you’re in Mexico then you need to get a VPN service.
A VPN is an app that lets you disguise your real location and make it look like you’re somewhere totally different.
With a VPN app you can be in Mexico but make your Fire Stick (or Fire TV) think you’re in the United States, or UK, or India or anywhere else in the world for that matter!
They’re really easy to use too and you can install one from the Amazon app store directly just like any other app.
I recommend using ExpressVPN because they’re a provider that supports the Amazon Fire Stick with an app and this is important because not all do. If you’ve got some time to do your own research then you’ll want to check out these three.
My Top 3 VPNs for using your Fire Stick in Mexico:
If you don’t have time to be shopping about (and who does these days!) then sign up for ExpressVPN. They’re easy to use and work with more services than the others.

Now use the VPN with your Fire Stick
Now you’ve got a VPN you’ll need to install it on your Fire Stick to use it in Mexico.
Follow the simple steps below and you’ll be up and running in minutes. I’m using ExpressVPN but the steps are much the same with the other providers too.
How to use an Amazon Fire Stick in Mexico:
- Visit the ExpressVPN website by clicking here, choose a subscription package and sign up for their service.
- Once you’ve signed up download their app on your Fire Stick by searching ‘ExpressVPN’.
- Click on the ExpressVPN app and then select Install, Download or Get.
- Press the ‘Home’ button and then select the ExpressVPN app.
- When the app opens login and activate it.
- Press Selected Location.
- Then select your home country, for example, United States.
- The app should start to connect for you but if it doesn’t press the large Connect power button.
Now you’re connected to the VPN app any apps you use or services you access on your Fire Stick think you’re in the United States (or whatever country you selected).
Now you can open up any of the apps on your Fire Stick such as Netflix, NBC Sports, BBC iPlayer and others.
You’ll be able to use them as if you were in your home country.
You can even use it to access different regions of Netflix from around the world. So if for example you’ve got a US Netflix account you can connect to Canada or the UK and access their movies and TV show catalogue which differs from the American one.
30-day money back guarantee
Are there any additional costs?
No, not at all. Once you’ve got a VPN service from one of the providers recommended above there are no further costs.
You can use your Fire Stick as much as you want in Mexico. You can watch as many shows, stream as many movies and use as many apps for as long as you want in Mexico.
There are no added charges once you’ve got the VPN service.
Get 3-months VPN absolutely free!
If you’re planning on being in Mexico for a while then consider ExpressVPN’s offer.
If you take a 12-month package with them then they will give you 3-months entirely free on top. This will allow you to save 49% on the price compared to paying monthly.
Paying on a month-by-month basis is the most expensive way to pay so if you’ll be in Mexico or outside your home country for a couple of months the 12-month + 3-months deal is most cost effective.
Recap: How to use an Amazon Fire Stick in Mexico
If you want to use your Amazon Fire Stick in Mexico then you’ll need to get yourself a VPN service.
This comes as an app you download onto your Fire Stick. There are only a few reliable VPN services that work with the Amazon Fire Stick and the one I recommend is ExpressVPN.
Not only do they have a 30-day money back guarantee but they’re super simple to use. Even if you can’t get it working then you can just get your money back.
So, as a reminder, here’s what you need to do:
- Sign up for ExpressVPN.
- Download their app onto your Fire Stick.
- Connect to your home country, eg; United States.
