I love curling up for a good movie, and it's super easy these days to get my favorite films on the big screen. But losing my streaming stick's remote is a fast way to stop the fun. Fortunately, losing that remote doesn't mean I have to buy a whole new streaming stick. Setting up a new remote is a breeze!

A streaming stick without a remote isn't really a streaming stick. Amazon only sells one replacement remote for the Fire TV line, and it's the high-end Alexa remote. Here's how to get your replacement Fire TV Stick remote set up!

How to replace your Fire TV stick remote

  1. Turn on your Fire TV stick.
  2. Make sure the included batteries are inside the new remote.
  3. Press and hold the home button on the new remote for ten seconds.
  4. The Fire TV Stick will display a message when the remote is connected.

The Fire TV Stick can pair a new remote from the home screen, so you don't need to worry about opening the pairing menu. Just pair the remote, it'll connect and bam! You're ready to watch your favorite shows and movies.

Really the only remote you can get

This is the only replacement remote Amazon is selling right now, so it's the default choice. Not that it's a bad option: it's the exact same as your previous remote, so you'll already be familiar with how to use it. All of your Alexa commands will still work too, thanks to the built-in microphone.

Alexa Voice Remote for Amazon Fire TV and Fire TV stick

Only $10 cheaper than the Fire TV stick and remote bundle.

It's a bit silly that the replacement remote is only $10 less expensive than the Fire TV stick and remote bundle, but it is what it is. This remote is the exact same as the one that came with your Fire TV Stick, so the controls will be familiar and you'll still be able to use Alexa with the microphone on the remote.

Your streaming stick

All your favorite shows and movies, with a major exception.

If you're already an Amazon Prime customer, a Fire TV Stick is a no-brainer. It's only $40, so it's an easy purchase to get your favorite Prime Movies and TV shows on the big screen. And with the included Alexa Voice Remote, you can use Alexa to open your favorite streaming apps. One big omission from the Fire TV line is a YouTube app, so if you want to follow your favorite techies, you're going to be out of luck.
