Please check compatibility if you have an older Fire stick (AbleSign requires FireOS 6 or later).

Head to the App Store on your Firestick and search for AbleSign (all one word).

Create your playlist

This is where the fun starts. We are now ready to create a playlist and have the digital signage screen display it. Your AbleSign account includes some demo videos and images to help you get started, so let’s use those.

Drag the waterfall video from the right to your playlist on the left.
