  13. After you sign in to Plex.TV on your smartphone / computer, enter the “code” displayed on your Firestick into the “Link” box in your smartphone / computer’s web browser.  In my case, the code was 4-digits long (and all letters, ex: “KGXL” – but don’t enter “KGXL”! Enter the code showing on the screen attached to your Firestick).

    Enter the 4-digit code that appears on the screen attached to your Firestick (into the “Link Account” field at https://plex.tv/link/

  14. Plex will link the Firestick plex app with your Plex account!

  15. Your Firestick should now display the content of any and all Plex media servers that you have set up in your Plex account.  If you don’t have any Plex media servers, you need to set one up so the Plex Firestick app has media to play!  This is how Plex works: You set up a Plex server (or servers), then watch the content you’ve added to the server(s) using the Plex app on any device.  Once you have one or more Plex servers set up and linked to your Plex account, continue to the next step.
  16. Use the Firestick remote to navigate through the content of your Plex server.  Press the center button of the Fire TV remote on a movie or TV show (or even music) to instantly play any content in your Plex media server(s).
  17. If you see the message “No content available on this server”, then see Step 15 above to set up a Plex Media server.
