ON lan there is no access to Internet.. does roku require any sort of internet connection

Our plan is to setup 1gb switch and from there distribute fiber cabel to each house with cat 5 and the connect roku

Re: Ruko in LAN

Could you elaborate on what the (outside) Internet access is needed for?

We are also working with a Telco, who will [potentially] be running on a private, managed network.

For one thing, you need internet access for any firmware patches that become available for your roku box, as well as for initial setup and registration...

If you are doing demos, it will work without internet access once it has already been configured and you're only accessing your local channel. There is no way to deploy to end users without internet access though.

Re: Ruko in LAN

Could you do the roku setup over dial-up Internet connection or cellphone tethering? Won't work with iPhone as it doesn't do infrastructure mode, but maybe android phone?

So basically every customer need internet.. in order to use roku device ? We didnt want put internet access because then we would need to get ISP license and iSp license is pain in our country
