My hotspot won’t populate on the network page.

I have a hotspot on my phone and I’m trying to connect it to my Roku express and my hotspot isn’t coming up on my network search. 
Can I not use my phone as an hotspot ? 
How do I fix this !?!

Re: My hotspot won’t populate on the network page.

Your Roku Express has single band wifi capability, operating in the 2.4 GHz band only, on channels 1 through 11.   If your hotspot does not user the 2.4 GHz band, or if it is using a 2.4 GHz channel above 11, your Express won't see it.
