It is very likely that the services would be Out of Stock. In that case, there is nothing you can do but wait for it to be available again.

Be careful while selecting the plan. Area 51 is a third-party service, and there is no guarantee about its longevity. My advice is that you select the monthly plan.

Once the services are in stock again and you can finally purchase them, you will be required to login/signup. You can either signup with your email or signup with Facebook. If you ask for my advice, signup with email.

You’ll be asked to verify your email with the verification email sent to your address. Hence, make sure that you enter your email address correctly. You will receive emails related to important stuff to your Area 51 service, so make sure you enter the right email address.

Complete the registration with the help of the on-screen instructions, and buy the plan of your choice.

Note: The password you created during the signup process is your login password. You will receive your streaming username and password separately in an email.

Ans. There are many apps that offer great entertainment content all round. The answer may vary according to the preferences of different users. It solely depends on your choice of what kind of experience do you prefer on your Firestick although some facts need to be considered.

You evaluate certain things like in what quality a certain app is delivering content, the speed it is providing, the types of links it is providing you, etc. If you haven’t read our article about Best Firestick Apps thoroughly, I recommend you spare a couple of minutes to do so.


Ans. Again, there are many apps that allow different features. Some provide a decent number of satellite channels for free, and some give a large number of channels for a premium price. It will be your personal choice that which app suits your expectations best.


It depends. While it is not entirely illegal to Jailbreaking a Firestick, you may end up in Jail for illegally accessing copyrighted content. If you have Jailbroken your Firestick, the first thing I would recommend is installing ExpressVPN.

If you have Jailbroken your Firestick, it is pretty obvious that you are going to experiment on different kinds of services, which might not be entirely healthy for your network. Accessing the content for which you don’t have rights, knowingly or unknowingly, is a felony. It’s better to take precautions before you proceed any further.
