If you’re away from your Fire TV Stick, you can download the app from the Amazon website so that it’s ready for when you get back. Sign in to your Amazon account and select your device from the menu titled “Deliver to.” The download will begin remotely, and you should receive a notification once it’s finished.

Aside from the Fire TV Stick, you can also watch Apple TV on any Fire tablets you may own. You’ll find the app on-screen the next time you fire up your Fire TV or tablet.

How to cancel Apple TV on the Fire Stick

To remove Apple TV from your Fire Stick, navigate the Settings from the home page and select Applications—> Manage Installed Applications. Scroll down to find Apple TV and click Uninstall.

If you never plan to use the app again, make sure you first cancel your subscription within the app to avoid being charged the monthly fee. To do so, open Settings–> Users & Accounts–> Subscriptions. Select Apple TV from the subscriptions you want to manage and select Cancel Subscription.

You could also opt for an Apple One subscription if you regularly use other Apple services such as Apple Music, iCloud storage, and Apple Arcade. The bundle will save you money compared to paying for all these services individually.
