Telstra TV away from home

Answered

Can our Telstra TV box be used in a hotel by simply using their wifi? Will our apps and accounts still be visible? 

Will this affect how our Tesltra TV works when we connect it again at home? Is there an easier way to watch our netflix account in a hotel with no smart tv?

We will be stuck in the hotel room for a whole day and are hoping to pass the time.

Thanks in advance!

As long as the Hotel WiFi does not require you to sign in the Telstra TV and all its apps should work. You will be able to use your Netflix account. When you get home you just need to reconnect to your home WiFi network.

 

The only other way to watch netflix on the big screen is to take a laptop with a HDMI port.

I am also finding it more common for Hotels to have TVs with casting functionality such as chomecast built in, which would also allow to cast it from a phone, tablet or laptop.
