How To Pair/ Unpair Fire TV Remote Easily

The other day, I was at a friend’s place for Diwali. She said she got a fire tv set gifted recently but did not know how to pair it, and as someone who is not very technologically well versed, all the tutorials on the internet seemed too complex for her understanding. Me being the technological guru that I am (not really), I helped her set it up and thought it would be a great idea to write an easy-to-understand article on how to pair/ unpair Fire TV remote easily without much hassle!

Now for those of you who don’t know what a fire tv stick remote is, it is a device by Amazon that looks like a pen-drive, connects to your television’s HDMI port, and turns it into a smart tv! It also comes with a small remote. All the streaming apps like Netflix, Amazon Prime, Disney + Hotstar, Hulu, and several others are automatically installed, and you can watch everything on the bigger screen. It’s like a more affordable and accessible way to have an intelligent television. The remote has a microphone that enables it to use Alexa, Amazon’s virtual assistant. It does things like playing a song you like, telling you the weather, setting the alarm, and it can even change lights (if they’re the ones compatible with Alexa like Philips) or adjust the thermostat all on your command!

Before looking at unpair Fire TV remote, here are the different versions of the device:

1. FIRE TV STICK: It’s the first model with all the necessary basic features and lets you stream all your applications but only in 1080p and not 4k, and has Dolby Atmos audio.


2. FIRE TV STICK LITE: This one is similar to a fire tv stick, except it has no Dolby Atmos audio and does not have volume control or power on/off buttons, which means you’ll be required to use your actual tv remote for those functions.

3. FIRE TV STICK 4K: This version lets you stream your favorite shows in 4K, which is the highest available resolution, but you’ll need a 4K television to use it. It also has the best audio, along with the Alexa voice remote.

Using a fire TV stick is also super easy and convenient; I also believe it is a great way to make your TV into a smart one in a cheaper way. An essential thing that one should know is that buying a fire stick does not give you subscriptions to its applications, and you have to accept them separately. 

I think this device is a significant investment in a generation where streaming channels like Netflix and Hulu have so much content and relevance.
