  1. To change your TIME and not the time zone: Just UNPLUG the firestick. When you turn it back on, all will be resolved.

  2. I’ve done everything as above but the date is 2 days out and the time is 2 hours fast. I’ve tried a few times now but it won’t change.

    Today is June 1st but my Firestick is set to May 18th. I cannot stream anything with a release date after May 18. I have reset the Time Zone and I have unplugged the Firestick. No luck.

  4. I went through your steps the time appears to be correct. However when I go back to dish and the guide the time is on eastern time and I am in CA. With my fire stick.
