Signing up for a new internet account isn’t a new idea.
But, if you’ve got a mobile phone or laptop with a fast enough connection to handle it, you can now sign up to the Netflix or Amazon Fire TV app on your device.
Netflix and Amazon’s mobile apps are available on a number of Android devices.
You’ll have to download the apps from a web page or download a specific app from a specific website, but it’s possible to sign-up to these apps from your Android phone or the Fire TV itself.
Netflix is currently available for iOS and Android devices, but you can sign-in with your Google account, or with your Netflix account from the Fire Stick.
Amazon’s service is available on the Amazon Fire HD, Fire TV Stick, Fire, Fire HD Stick, and Fire TV.
The Fire TV is currently the only one that can connect to Netflix, and you can also sign-into Amazon from the Amazon App Store.
Netflix will be available in more countries in the future, so it’s worth checking the status of this service before signing up.
