Tip-off !!

Streaming without a VPN exposes your IP address, making you vulnerable to privacy breaches and hacker attacks. Without encryption, your online activities are more susceptible to monitoring by ISPs, snoopers, and the government. Lastly, accessing geo-restricted content may be impossible without a VPN, limiting your entertainment options. Hence, it is recommended to use a VPN.

Of all the available VPNs, I recommend NordVPN if you ever want to watch the desired movies, TV shows, or sports events on your Firestick without risking your privacy. NordVPN is the fastest and best VPN service provider with global coverage. You can now avail yourself of the New Year's deal of 67% off + 3 Months Extra of NordVPN to stay anonymous.

With NordVPN on Firestick, your internet traffic gets encrypted, so your IP and identity stay anonymous. You can stream the desired content while staying away from the government and other online intruders.

Funimation and Crunchyroll

After the merger between Crunchyroll and Funimation, a lot of anime content from Funimation was moved to Crunchyroll. It is also specified that the new episodes will be available only on the Crunchyroll app. Citing to this, the Funimation Now app is removed from the Amazon App Store for Fire TVs and Fire TV Sticks. So, we advise you to get the Crunchyroll app on Firestick to stream all the anime content.
