Connecting to The Roku App when I only have hotspot on my phone

Jump to solution

So I use my tv with my hotspot on my phone, and it works pretty well but it won't let me connect my phone to the tv with the app cause technically they arnt on the same network, and I tried putting in the iP code and it didn't work

Thanks for the inquiry.

Please be aware that both the mobile device and the Roku device/TV need to be on the same wireless network for the Roku device to function properly.
