Is it possible to use Optimum Hotspot with my Roku?

I'm currently away from home and I'm trying to connect my Roku to my Optimum's account wireless hotspot. I haven't been able to connect it despite adding the MAC address on Optimum's Account site. Any advice?

I have no idea what an Optimum hotspot is, but I have used many of my Roku players successfully with a hotspot on my phone. So yes, it should work on your hotspot.

Yes, connect it to “optimum”, then it will ask you what kind of WiFi you’re using. Select “Hotel/Dorm” option. Then it will prompt you to open the WiFi settings on your smartphone/tablet, after you will sync device with your Roku & log into optimum though your phone. After your roku will connect.
