About using Kindle Fire with MediaHint:

  • The Amazon AppStore requires a US credit card even to get FREE apps. A credit card with US billing address should be added to your Amazon account and should be set as default “1-click” payment method.
  • Using the browser “Amazon Silk” will not work with MediaHint because Silk sends all traffic directly to Amazon servers. Please use any other browser on your device.
