    Default Amazon Fire Stick blacklisted

    My daughters TV has only limited smart TV functions and she is wanting to watch Netflix. Looking online, the fire stick seems to be a good option
    Heading over to Ebay, i see some are going cheap due to being blacklisted ! This has now perked my curiosity... how and why is that possible and is there a way round it ?

    Default Re: Amazon Fire Stick blacklisted

    I read something on them removing the registration of firestick with multiple firesticks on the same account obviously targeting traders/dealers, not sure on the blacklist but if factory restore does not remove it I can't see them being of much value. Someone else might know more on it.
