Initial setup before cutting the cord

I am presently connected to the internet with Spectrum.  I am changing my internet service to ATT.  My question is, "Can I activate my Roku device on a separate HDMI port while still connected to Spetrum and then transfer my Roku to the ATT internet"?  I would like to be able to checkout my Roku hookup before I am connected to the ATT Internet, and then cancel my Spectrum bundle.

Re: Initial setup before cutting the cord

The HDMI port is only for the connection to your TV; it has nothing to do with your Internet connection.  Now if you have a Roku with an Ethernet jack, then the answer is yes - you can connect the Ethernet cable to your current router and then just connect it to your new router and everything will be fine.  If you have a Wi-Fi only device, the the answer is still yes, but it's a little more complicated.  You have to select your current Wi-Fi network and enter the password to connect to your Spectrum router and then once you get the AT&T router you'll have to go through the Network setup again which should be fairly painless.
