Using a roku without internet

I would like to use my roku at home normally with internet, but on occasion I would like to take it when I travel.

When travelling, I would like to play videos stored on my mobile phone.

Is it possible to get the roku express to connect to my mobile phone hotspot, without my mobile phone having any internet access, to play videos from a server on my phone?

Thanks for the inquiry.

You may be able to screen mirror your device depending on the Roku model device and phone you have.
