Does my fire tv stick need a cable box to function or can I just plug it from my tv to the electric outlets

The Fire Stick just needs a HDMI port to plug into. The ones on the tv (assuming it's a newerish tv with HDMI connections) will work fine.

Connecting fire stick to tv. i am a prime member with amazon

Setting up Amazon Fire TV Stick hardware
  1. Plug the micro-USB power cable into your Fire TV Stick and the other end into the plug adapter and into the wall.
  2. Plug your Fire TV Stick into an HDMI port on your TV (a cable is included to extend the HDMI reach if you've got a particularly tricky TV).
  3. Next, turn on your TV and switch the input to the right HDMI port
  4. You won't be able to interact with Fire TV Stick until you pair a remote. Thankfully, by just inserting the batteries into the included remote, it should pair automatically. If this fails, you can download and use the Amazon Fire TV remote app on your phone.
  5. Now it's time to set up your wireless network. Fire TV Stick should automatically detect your Wi-Fi. Select your network and enter any passwords.
  6. Your Fire TV Stick will then check for updates and download anything it doesn't have before letting you continue. Depending on how new your Stick is and the strength of your connection, this could take some time.
  7. If you bought your Fire TV Stick from Amazon, it will have arrived already logged in and set up with your account, which is handy. If not, don't worry, it's very easy to set up a new account on Fire TV, requiring nothing more than your Amazon login details.
  8. Once done, you'll be treated to an unskippable introduction to your Fire TV Stick, taking you through the basics of what the system can do and how to make the most of its features.
  9. From here, you can set up parental control settings before you start using your Fire TV Stick as intended.
Now you've set your Fire TV Stick up, here's how to install Kodi on it.

Hi, I purchased a firetvstick but it does not respond after plugged into my smart tv. help

Check list:

1) Do you have your fire stick powered?
Connected via usb cable to a power adapter
plugged into a power strip that has the power on,
power switch is on.

2) Do you have your TV input set to the correct HDMI input?
Depending on the model you may have 2 to 4 HDMI inputs.
This is the most common error.
Please make sure the input is set to the correct input
of where your fire stick is plugged in to.

3) If you have power and the input in your TV is set.
And you still have nothing.
Then your firestick might be defective.

4) If it is working, read the instructions carefully.
connect your fire stick to your wi fi and register your fire stick.
Then enjoy!!
