How do I register my smart TV?

Because Amazon Fire Stick devices don't have a traditional web browser, you will likely need to manually register the device in order to access the internet. To do this, you will need to  Log Into Your Account. Once logged in, click the link to "Manage My Devices" and then the link to "Add a Device." You will need to enter your MAC address here and select "Media Streamer" as the device type. Below are instructions for locating a MAC address for some popular Smart TV brands. If your brand is not listed, or the instructions do not work, you may need to contact your TV's manufacturer for assistance with locating the MAC address.

    Please help. I've followed every step it shows it's connected and my device is added, but I still can't stream anything. When I open an app it says I'm not connected
