anyone using roku?

Guys and gals, thinking about getting a roku stick for the kids tv in the bunk room. Ill be using my phones wifi hotspot (unlimited data) to feed it internet. Has anyone done this? Also, for tvs mounted on a swivel, how do you gain access to the rear ports?

My swivel tv is on a bracket that pulls out from the cabinet. Never heard of Roku so have not tried it. We just do the standard campground cable, use the antenna or watch dvd's.

So the tvs just pull straight out? If so, I feel really dumb.

Tokugawa?????????? Isn't that a Japanese Steak House????

As for access to the rear of the tv ... on some models I seem to remember the mirror behind it comes off. Try a search I know there were threads about this before. JM2, Hank (this is for tv that revolves between two rooms, not just a swivel arm.)

Where did you get unlimited data for your hot spot?

I tried using my ROKU stick at a RV park (with WIFI) and it was a slow internet connection. Took a long time to load and finally I just unplugged it and went back to watching DVDs. I don't have the unlimited data on my phone.
