Amazon Fire TV Stick is one of the best streaming sticks out there for TVs. In addition to the default Amazon Prime Video, you can also access Netflix, Hulu and other streaming movie and music services by installing their respective apps available in the store.
After using a streaming service for a while, you might want to unsubscribe from it and remove its app from Fire TV Stick. Luckily, uninstalling an app from Fire TV Stick is as simple as installing it.
