Have you purchased for Fire TV device recently? Then you probably want to know how many Amazon Firesticks you can use at the same time. If that’s the case then you came to the right place in this article I am going to share with you a whole guide on using this device on multiple devices.
To understand how this works and get the answer to most questions don’t forget to read this article until the end. It is because just like you, I was also wondering about it. That’s why I try to search on the internet and found there are many people who are already asking about it.
This is the reason why I am writing this post so I can help my visitors with this problem and help others too. However, this article will be helpful for different devices including Fire TV Stick 4K, Fire TV 2nd, 3rd Generation, Lite and even on Fire TV Cube. If you have any of these devices then make sure to keep reading this article.
How Many Amazon FireSticks You Can Use At The Same Time
Now talking about the most asked question how many Firesticks can you use at the same time? There are two answers for this depending on the situation. So, if you are wondering about using a single account for multiple devices then the answer is, You can use unlimited devices with the same Amazon account.
But talking about watching the same movie or TV Show using Prime Video on multiple devices this answer will be. You can only use two devices at the same time to watch the same Movie or Series on different devices. This is not because of the device but because it is the policy of prime video.
For more information read this: Amazon Prime Video Usage Rules
As if you are a premium member then you will be able to get 3 screens at the same time but when it comes to watching the same content then the limit is just two. Although this limit could be different on other services for example Netflix allows users to watch on Up to 4 devices at the same time.
This is why if you are willing to use multiple devices on a single Amazon Account then feel free to register them. But in case you want to watch the same content on more than two devices then it is not possible. You just need to close a Movie or TV Show from another TV so you can watch it on your TV.
Can I Multiple FireSticks in One House
So, we have another question that probably most people are willing to ask if I can use multiple Firesticks in one house. Now the answer is simple Yes, anyone can use as many Firesticks as they want in one house. Even though it doesn’t require the user to have a different account as if you are willing to use a single account then can do it.
However I personally now own 3 different Fire Stick devices in my house it is because one is used to watching movies or TV Shows. While the other two I used to make tutorials, and install 3rd-party applications to check if they are working or not. And do a lot of stuff and until now I haven’t faced any sort of problem.
Even though you can reach out to Amazon and you will get an answer that there is no limit over how many devices in a single house can be used. Just in case you are willing to buy a new device for yourself then go ahead and get Firestick from Amazon. However, before purchasing it make sure to check our review on this device by following this guide: Fire TV Stick Review
Can You Use 2 Amazon FireTV Sticks at Once
After reading the above section we learnt that we can use multiple Fire Sticks on a single Amazon account. But the problem came is watching the same content on multiple devices. Then you may face the limit issue because this device is only capable of playing two same movies or TV Show at a time.
Despite this, if you are watching different titles then it can be used on three devices and this limit could be different depending on the service you are using. But the problem is when you are switching between devices you may face several problems so here we are going to talk about this.
Error 1: An Additional Video Cannot be Watched on Your account
This error only occurs while you are watching either the same content on a 3rd device or trying to watch it on three or more devices. So, the solution is quite simple for this as you just need to close the Movie on one device and then wait for 10 minutes. After this, you will be able to watch it on other Fire TV devices.
Error 2: Video is Not Playing After turning off 1st device
This is another issue that most people face as even if they turn off one device and wait for 10 minutes they are not able to watch it on another Fire Stick. To solve this problem all you need to do is just De-Register Fire TV Stick from the first device and then after 10 minutes, you will be able to watch again.
To De-Register follow these steps:
- Go to Settings from the above menu.
- Move across and select My Account.
- Click on Amazon Account.
- From the next screen select Deregister.
- When asked for confirmation select Deregister again.
Now the Fire TV is Deregistered successfully and once you are able to watch it again just Register your device again.
How Many Devices Can Use Amazon Prime Video At The Same Time
Until now there are various famous streaming services are available on the internet like Netflix, Hulu, Disney+ and so on. Similarly, Amazon also launched its service which is named Amazon Prime Video which is now working globally. This amazing service provides users with a 7-day of free trial and after this, they charged around $5.99 for the first month.
After this, a user will be charged $8.99 per month or $108 per year (a yearly subscription is available in a few countries). Unlike Netflix, you won’t be provided with different choices like how many screens you want or quality. As with Prime Video, a user will be able to watch Movies or TV Show on up to 3 devices at a time. Other than this if a user tries to play the same title then it only allows 2 devices at the same time.
This is why always keep this in mind in case you are willing to buy a Prime Video subscription and want to watch some content on multiple devices. In this way either you should use Netflix or other streaming services to increase your watch limit or if you want to stick with this service then you only get two devices.
After reading this whole article we learnt how many Amazon Firesticks you can use at the same time. Instead of this, there are several other questions that are asked by the users which I have answered above. In case you have missed any sort of information then make sure to go above and check it again.
