Public WiFi connection at RV park

Using a public WiFi connection at an RV park and it is one that asks for extra info and to check a box to accept their terms. Cannot get to that screen to put in info and check the box, similar to connecting to wifi like at a Target store or Walmart.

Contacted provider and they were able to allow MAC address of device to not require the extra info and all was good and watched The Wolverines demolish Ohio State and take the conference!

Generally, public services like that require a web browser to handle the "log in", and not all streaming devices provide a browser.  For some reason, Google specifically did not include a browser in Android TV, which is what the DTV branded streamer uses.  You can download a browser from the Google Play store - I have no idea, however, whether any of those will work for this requirement.

You could always connect to it via a laptop ---go to the stream.directv.com website and cast it to your tv or run an hdmi cable from a laptop to the tv. Other than that--not sure how to set it up with that kind of public wifi login requirement. Or use a phone to connect to the public wifi---use the Dtv Stream app to cast to the tv.
