Amazon Fire TV Stick have been told there's a nifty trick to unlock a treasure trove of 100,000 movies without spending a penny - and it's completely legal. The spectre of copyright theft has been risen in recent days after a man was arrested for illegally streaming Sky TV.

The 42 year old man, from Nottingham, was arrested after being found to have illegally distributing Sky content such as films, and sports - and had equipment seized by police.

However, there are means of watching free movies which are allowed - and don't require any sign-up or subscription. One such example is relatively unknown app Fawesome, which can be downloaded on Fire devices, iPhones, Android smartphones, and Roku sticks.
