Re: Set up roku premiere with smart phone as internet connection

I have an S7 myself.  Does your service provider permit your phone to act as a wifi hotspot?  If so, you can turn this on and have your Roku connect to the network name (SSID) and password used by your hotspot.

I do have home internet, but I've swithched my Roku over to my Verizon-connected phone hotspot a couple of times when my normal internet was down.
