Will roku stick work with the ultra?

Jump to solution

I have an out building that has hard wired internet as it is too far to get the WiFi signal. I have an HDTV TV (not smart but does have ethernet port) out there that I would like to buy a stick for. It is my drum studio so am mainly watching instructional type of stuff, no heavy viewing. Will that type of configuration work? Any advice welcome!

Why would a TV that is not "smart" have an Ethernet port? Anyways, that port would essentially be an input. As noted, Roku Sticks are WiFi only. If you can run Ethernet to the studio, you could either use an Ultra directly, or get an access point to create a WiFi hotspot. Something similar to this:

You title doesn't make any sense (Will roku stick work with the ultra?), but to answer your question, your TV's Ethernet port does you no good with a stick.  You either want a Roku Ultra with an Ethernet port or a Wi-Fi extender of some sort if you want to use a stick.
