I have a Roku stick on my home tv which I rarely use. My question is, can I use this device on my MH tv to get tv reception at the campground. I have an iPhone with Verizon service and "unlimited" data. Can I use my iPhone as a mobile hotspot and connect it to the Roku device to at least get youtube etc?

Do you have Verizon? I am told I can use up to 15GB per device on 4G. Is that similar to yours? Thanks.

Yes, but to make it more steady in streaming from a cellphone hotspot go into the Roku settings and change it to 720p on the picture quality, streaming is much easier then as compared to using 1080p which you likely had it set for from an in house wifi.

Your only problem will be 15GB will last only about 10 days if you watch much TV at all.

No, not Verizon but on a similar plan

We have streamed many a program using streaming apps from various networks. 15 GB will get you about 10 hours or so.

We do using: AT&T true unlimited hotspot, Roku, and Google TV.

Google TV is $50/month, but it's used for all TV watching at home, at the cottage, and over the road. No cable.

Have routinely used 40 to 60 GB of data on this Hotspot no problem, no throttling.
