Do you have an old TV collecting dust around the house, or maybe in your garage or backyard, your child’s dorm room, or the home of an elderly family member? Give your TV new life by turning your old TV into smart TV with Fire TV in just a few steps.
You don’t even need an HDMI port on your TV; as long as it works, all you need is a compatible HDMI adapter and a wireless connection in your home.
Here’s how to turn your Old TV into Smart TV with Fire TV
- Determine which HDMI adapter is compatible with your old TV. Common HDMI adapters include HDMI to AV (RGB) adapter (basically an RCA to HDMI Converter), HDMI to component adapter, or HDMI to VGA adapter (all of these adapters are available for as little as $8 — $26).
- Connect the HDMI adapter to the port on your TV and connect your Fire TV Stick Lite, Fire TV Stick, Fire TV Stick 4K, Fire TV Stick 4K Max or Fire TV Cube (all these devices are available between $30 — $140.
- If you already have an Amazon device that is connected to your home network, a Wi-Fi simple setup can have you up and running in seconds.
- Sign into your Amazon account to register your Fire TV device or create a new account if you don’t already have one.
