Question

Can you use this hot spot to stream to your TV using a Roku?

I know you need to have an internet connection to stream with Roku, but does the "hot spot" take the place of a modem so you can stream?

Just scan available networks on your Roku and connect it wordlessly to the Hotspot and boom. So to answer your question, YES.
answered 1 year, 3 months ago

answer 2
Yes it is a cellular modem and a wireless router in one. You will use alot of bandwidth streaming tv so be aware it may not be cost effective to use for that purpose. If you don't have a cheaper option you will probably want to keep video streams on a lower quality

What is the range? How close do you have to be to get a signal?

Can I use it for devices in other parts of the house or do you have to be in the same room?

This is a piece of junk. You can use the net provided the Sprint signal is strong enough to support what you are doing. Three or four people in my neighborhood also have this device. We are only 3G. When one or two of the children are on playing games or watching movies I cannot get on. Also they tend to kick me off. It's ok if you want to use it at 2/3 AM when no one else is.

It can be used in another room. 150ft or closer is the range.

As long as you are in the network, you should be good. Go to VirginMobileusa.com and look at the broadband coverage area. It might not be an idea to purchase a stick for certain travel situations, but I always check. Yes, there are places that Sprint does not cover, but you know what? THAT is where I use the McDonald's WiFi ;)
