Fire TV 4K
Fire TV 4K sticks are a decent affordable option to turn your TV into a sign. The Fire TV OS is somewhat restricted, so you won't get some of the remote management options that you will get with the Windows and Chome devices, but if you plan on turning your sign off in the evening and back on in the morning manually, for most cases, the Fire TV 4K stick will make a great low cost device. To install the MangoSign player for your Fire TV 4K device, you can search for Mango Signs in the Fire TV app store and click on the search term to view and install it.
Important! - If using a Fire TV device, be sure to turn the following setting off if available on the Fire TV device. Failing to disable this setting will automatically exit the app after a few hours of running
