The Amazon Fire TV Stick has a wide range of channels that you can use to stream video content to your television. In many cases you will be able to watch almost everything on your Fire Stick that you can watch on your smartphone. But if you want to be able to watch something on your TV that you can’t, then you may want to enable display mirroring on the Fire Stick.
Display mirroring is a technology that lets your smartphone interact with your Fire TV Stick in a way that makes it possible for you to show your smartphone screen through the Fire TV.
