This guide will show you step by step process of how to connect kindle fire to tv Via HDMI Adapter as well as Fire TV.

I personally enjoy watching Movies and videos on the Kindle Fire tablet. Although it comes with an 8.9-9 inch display which is way bigger than my current Redmi Note 5 Pro Smartphone, Still sometimes I feel it’s not that big enough to get the best experience of watching videos.

It would be much better if I can project the Kindle Fire HD’s screen to my 40-inch television so that I can enjoy the video on a much wider screen. This is not just my story, there are many peoples like me who have Kindle fire tablet and they want to connect their Kindle fire with the television so that they can enjoy the latest Amazon Prime or Netflix series on a Bigger screen.

Luckily the Kindle Fire HD edition comes with HDMI port, so it is pretty much easy to connect kindle fire HD to tv. Unfortunately, the other latest Kindle fire does not have HDMI access so they can’t be connected easily to a TV via HDMI cable.

So, does it means that you can’t connect kindle fire 5th generation to tv or can’t connect kindle fire 7th generation to tv?

No, Not at all… In this tutorial, I will be sharing how you can connect Kindle Fire HD to TV via HDMI cable and How to connect kindle fire HD 8 to tv via Fire TV.
