It is not a smart TV, however that doesn't prevent you from using a Fire Stick. A Fire Stick is used to turn a non-smart TV into a smart TV. Plug it into an HDMI port on your computer, you have three to choose from (2 on the back, one on the side). Use the INPUT button on your TV remote to change the input to the HDMI connection you used (HDMI 4, 5 or 6). Your Fire stick should come right up, and you can start using it immediately.

Please rate 3-5 stars for my service. If you still need help, please reply.
