Hello - I've recently bought an o2 dongle with the intention of using it for my Roku smart tv. I've plugged it into the usb port but what do I do next? And will it even work in the tv??

 

Thanks!

It wont work as the Roku can not handle any dongles for Internet, as it only has a WiFi Connection, you should have purchased a MiFi which gives you WiFi access

Current Phone: Sony XPeria Pro-I and Motorola Razr 5G
I also have a Planet Computers Gemini

I work in IT as an Enterprise Messaging and Collaboration Tools Administrator (Office 365, Slack and much much more) and manage hardware both Mobile and Desktop / laptop, my desk is a bit like PC World

That would depend if the USB port on the TV was a data port or just an input for connecting other devices.

I have no affiliation whatsoever with O2 or any subsidiary companies. Comments posted are entirely of my own opinion. This is not Customer Service so we are unable to help with account specific issues.

I'd start by checking the manual for your TV @Ludders8
