Looks like you have to buy it from the UK and have it shipped out to Spain. Amazon fee seems to be about 7€. Have it shipped to Mailpoint. I presume you know you won't be able to get UK TV on it.

You can for sure get U.K. tV on it, just BBC iPlayer that you need to use VPN for

I brought my firestick over from the UK but it won't play on my TV. Have a VPN but don't know how to use this through my TV. Was just going to give my firestick to a relative in the U.K. To use and get sky installed over here.

'My Name is MiGusta, Not Me gusta'
Hi
Has anyone tried to use a Firestick that has been 'Jailbreaked' the term is or unblocked to us non savvy to obtain UK TV in Spain
I have 'Freed' mine and it works great to get access to Aps like FilmOn that show British TV in Spain (I am in UK)
If it works in Spain and you have good internet access it is a great way to get UK TV abroad. No need for 10 foot dishes on the roof.
I will be corrected if I am wrong but in spite of the name it is not illegal to'Jailbreak' a firestick as it does not give you access to pay per view without paying. Unless you know some sites i don't.You also have access to a mountain of Films.
In the past I have got UK TV by connecting my laptop to my TV but this is much smarter

Hi
Just been out to Algorfa and tried my Firestick. works great with filmon for TV or Exudos for movies etc.
Downside is it uses a lot of Gigs streaming so you need unlimited internet
