Your Amazon Fire TV device uses the date and time settings from your default time zone. If you ever want to adjust the current date and time on your Firestick, simply change the time zone. Here’s how you can do that.

  1. From the home screen, open “Settings” and select “Preferences.”
  2. Choose “Time Zone” followed by “Time Zone” again.
  3. Select your region, then your preferred time zone.

Note that the Fire TV system will not let you set it to precisely any time. Your Fire TV Stick does offer, however, several time zones to choose from. You aren’t limited to the ones in your region, either. You can choose any that you prefer, making jumping ahead or backward in time a cinch.

To begin changing the time, choose “Settings” on your Fire TV Stick’s home screen.

Select "Settings" on the home screen.

In “Settings,” select “Preferences.”

Choose "Preferences" in "Settings."

On the “Preferences” screen, choose “Time Zone.”

Select "Time Zone."

Select “Time Zone” again in the next screen.

Choose "Time Zone."

Select the part of the world whose time zone you want to use. In the next step, you’ll select the actual time zone.

Select the country.

Time zones in your selected part of the world will be displayed. Choose the zone you’d like to apply to your Fire TV Stick.

Select the new time zone.

And that’s all. Your Amazon Fire TV Stick now uses the date and time of your selected time zone. Enjoy!

As a Fire TV user, ensure you’re keeping your device up to date, so you have the latest bug fixes and features.
