Yes. You can get OTA tv by attaching a digital antenna, switching source to arial, and reprogramming your tuner by scanning for channels.

Thanks to everyone for the suggestions/information. I plan on giving it a try when we get to the campground.

I’ve used my Roku device using both campground WiFi and phone (hotspot). As wanderingaimlessly said, change Roku resolution to 720p in settings for smoother streaming.

Late to the thread, but we have had good luck running Roku off our home hotspot. Good tip on the 720p setting... that should help reduce bandwidth used.

We use Youtube TV on our Roku. The web site is: tv.youtube.com

Some other people have mentioned Google TV, but I think they mean Youtube TV as it's owned by Google.

Youtube TV offers a free trial, and there are no long-term contracts. You pay month-by-month for the service.

Mine works fine when my RV is connected to my home wifi, but won't show local channels when connected to wifi just 3 blocks away.

Whose WiFi, your mobile? Starbucks ? A neighbor using a proxy or VPN so the location data is different ?
