Can I hook up to Internet through my DVR or TV in my 2012 FC.

I'm not up on what my blue ray and Samsung TV will do in my 2012 FC. Can I, for example, hook up to the Internet when I have WIFI coverage and watch HBO GO or Max Go for example. The TV menu shows hookup possibility for movies through Netflex, etc. I don't even understand how I would do that. Not asking for step by step instructions, but would appreciate directions on how to learn what I do have available and what is needed to hook up and use Netflex and, even better, Internet streaming movies/video.
Thanks Howard

Your TV and Blue-Ray player, if equipped with WiFi, can connect to a WiFi network such as the one in your home or the one in a campground. However, the capacity of such networks is limited and will not likely support streaming by very many residents, if at all. When I visited Top of Georgia last year, I could use the network for general internet surfing, e-mail, etc. but streaming would not work. I suspect that the IP port used for streaming is not open.

If, however, your cable service provider or your internet provider has WiFi hotspots you can log onto, they may support streaming. AT&T, for example, has WiFi hotspots distributed throughout many areas which might support streaming, but I'm guessing they are not typically in places where campgrounds are located.

Another option might be to enable your mobile phone to act as a hotspot. I have done that, but I don't stream on that connection because it uses too much data.

If I remember correctly when I connected my BR player to my home network, there is a menu option to select your WiFi connection. Just go there and set up for whatever network you have available.

In the old days they used to explain electric wiring and water pipes, don't expect a fast fill of a swimming pool from a small diameter hose or run a lot of heaters with an extension cord. You would be doing the same with trying to do too much for any CG wifi, they will pull your plug when you shut down the entire parks system to run a movie.
