Amazon devices have become quite popular in the United States but what about other countries? Other countries have the availability to use these devices and have even changed the VPN for them to use the streaming services. But what about the Fire TV Cube?
Amazon has recently released that all Amazon devices are supported in Australia which includes the Fire TV Cube. You will not find an issue using the device, but there may be limitations on the content that is on the device.
Although the Fire TV Cube and other technological devices from Amazon have made it easier for streaming, there are still limitations and things that may change when you change your location from the U.S. to Australia. This is everything you need to know to prepare you for the move.
Can I Use A Fire TV Cube In Australia?
Yes, you will be able to use the Fire TV Cube in Australia. Only a few years ago, not all Amazon products worked in other countries. If you wanted to watch your streaming services, you would have to change your VPN to a new location.
Some users still practice this so that they can have access to what they want. It isn’t too difficult and you can always change it back to your current location. But you don’t have to worry too much because your Fire TV Cube does work in Australia. It won’t be a hassle.
Countries Fire TV Devices Work In
- United Kingdom
- United States
You may find that the content varies. In European countries, you should have access to most content that is available in the United States. Sadly, Australia is not one of those European countries and so you may have limitations you weren’t aware of.
If I Bring One To Australia, Will It Work?
Your Fire TV Cube will still work if you are traveling and you decide to bring it with you. You may find that the country setting will change or you will need to change the setting yourself. You will then get to see a section on your Amazon Prime of shows you can watch while abroad.
There are a few things you will need to keep in mind when traveling with your Fire TV Cube. Here are those considerations:
- The content may change.
- You will not have access to some of the previous titles you own on Amazon Prime until you return home.
- You may lose any rentals when you change country settings, even if you return to the original country settings.
- Some applications may not work in the new country.
- Some games may not work in the new country.
If there are certain games and applications you are worried about not working, don’t contact Amazon. They do not have the power of those apps working in a new country. You will have to check with the game or apps developer. There should be information on their website of which countries are compatible and which ones aren’t.
Do I Need An Adapter?
No, you do not need an adapter when you go to Australia for your Amazon device. You should be able to access your Amazon Prime and set everything up with ease. So an adapter is not necessary.
If you are worried about losing your content or not being able to use specific apps, you can decide to keep your original country setting. You will have to change your VPN to the United States or whatever your country’s origin is.
To do this, you will have to follow a few steps, but it should only take you a few minutes. Here are those steps:
- Search for a VPN application on your device.
- Download the app.
- Follow the instructions within the app.
- Alter your location to your country of origin.
- Connect to the country and begin watching your shows and movies.
You will find that there are many different types of apps to choose from. Some will be free and some you will have to pay for. You may consider paying for one as it will be protected and it has benefits that the free ones may not have. The choice is ultimately up to you.
Understand though that most features and apps will now work in Australia. You may find like smaller apps and games are the ones that will have restrictions or limitations. Always check with those companies’ settings before deciding to purchase a VPN application.
Even with all the limitations when going to another country with a device, you will find that Amazon is constantly updating their devices so that you don’t have to worry about taking all these extra steps. Now, you don’t have to do any workarounds to stream your favorites when you go to Australia for vacation or permanent reasons.
