Doesn't work that way from my experience. Took my roku on a recent trip. Seemed it couldn't make it past the hotels portal even though it found the wifi sig, it just wound not connect. This happened at a Hyatt and Holiday Inn. However, I was able to stream SD when I turned on my laptops hotspot ability while my laptop was connected to the hotel network. Not a choice but a work around.
I was referring specifically to Time Warner and the current Android/iOS apps and PC function. Those only work if you have TW cable AND internet connection and they only work on the home network. Since my Roku stays home, I have no idea how it works travelling, but I am positive Time Warner's apps don't work off your TW internet home network, and I'm 99% sure the Roku app will work the same way.
