Re: How does Roku work with Hotspot?


Thanks for the inquiry.

For more information about Roku, we would recommend taking a look at the following Support pages:
What is a Roku® streaming player?
What channels can I watch on my Roku® streaming device?

We don't typically recommend using mobile hotspot connections for streaming, but rather recommend the use of a home wireless network if available.
