Why does Roku want to know where I am

My Roku would not connect to my wireless internet until I answered if I was at home or in a hotel. I have never had to answer that before. Why does it need to know my location

Re: Why does Roku want to know where I am

I think it's to choose how to connect. Hotel mode is a little different because they often require going through a browser to enter information, which a Roku can't normally do. Details about hotel mode are here:
