Using a new Wi-Fi temporarily

My home Wi-Fi will be out for a week. I have another Wi-Fi available via a hotspot. If I switch my Roku over to the hotspot Wi-Fi will I lose all of the subscription settings related to accounts like Amazon prime, Apple TV, Netflix, and others? This would mean I would have to sign into everything now and then again in one week, which seems like a big hassle.

Re: Using a new Wi-Fi temporarily


The subscriptions are tied to the Roku account (the account email), not your network connection.  You can change your network connection (and swap between them) without losing access or going through additional logins.

When you connect it to your temporary network (hotspot), just go to Settings/Network/Setup Connection and point it to the new network.  Roku devices are designed with portability/travel in mind so can easily switch between networks and locations.

Only real time you should have to login again to a subscription is if you remove a channel/app or you factory reset your device.  Neither of these procedures are required or needed to simply switch between networks.
