How do I activate a spare roku stick for travel purposes only?

Jump to solution

I have a spare Roku stick that I no longer use for my Tv at home. I removed it from my account device list. I would like to use it when I travel. How do I reactivate it for travel purposes only?

Factory reset it and go through the setup again.

@Kcdad 

Thanks for the inquiry.

As @renojim mentioned, you will need to perform a factory reset on your device to activate and relink the device to your Roku account. For more information about how to perform a factory reset on your device, visit our Support page here: How do I factory reset my Roku® streaming device?

Once your device is activated, you can bring the device with you when you travel and then use the Hotel & Dorm feature. Please note that your device needs to be already activated in order to use this feature. For more information about the Hotel & Dorm feature on Roku devices, visit our Support page here: How do I use Hotel & Dorm Connect to connect to the internet?


Thanks,
