Can I take my Roku® streaming player with me when I travel?

Yes. Connect your Roku streaming player to the internet at your next destination and watch your favorite movies and TV shows just like you do at home.

  • Note: Some travel destinations limit the speed of the internet connection. To avoid video playback issues, check that your destination has a good internet connection.

How do I connect my Roku player to the internet when traveling?

In some locations, you can connect your Roku player to the internet by entering the network name and password, much like you would your computer or smartphone. However, other locations, such as hotels, dorms or businesses, may only allow access to the internet after you first provide additional information (such as your hotel room number) via a webpage on your computer. These types of networks are known as captive portal networks.

Most Roku streaming players include a feature known as Hotel & Dorm Connect that allows you to connect your Roku streaming player to a captive portal network. Learn how to get your player on the internet using Hotel & Dorm Connect, and review the items to take along when traveling with your Roku streaming player.

You can use the Roku device comparison chart to determine which products support Hotel & Dorm Connect

  • Note: Roku streaming players may be prohibited from use on airplanes during flight as many airlines prohibit any kind of streaming content due to limited bandwidth. We suggest you contact your airline for internet availability and restrictions specific to your flight plans.
