If you are a traveler who loves to watch TV shows and movies on your Apple TV, you may have faced a common problem when staying in a hotel or RV park where Wi-Fi requires credentials. In such cases, it seems impossible to connect your Apple TV to the captive Wi-Fi. However, Apple has recently updated its software, and now it is possible to connect Apple TV to captive Wi-Fi.
Here is a step-by-step guide on how you can connect your Apple TV to a hotel or RV park Wi-Fi network.
Step 1: Go to Settings
First, you need to go to the main menu and select “Settings.”
Step 2: Select Network
In the “Settings” menu, scroll down and select “Network.”
Step 3: Scan for Wi-Fi
Select “Wi-Fi” and let your device scan for available networks.
Step 4: Choose Wi-Fi Network
Select the network you want to connect to and follow the instructions given by the Apple TV. Since we are connecting to a captive Wi-Fi network, it will prompt you to continue on iPhone or iPad.
Step 5: Continue on Your iPhone or iPad
Once you select “Continue on iPhone or iPad,” it will prompt you to enter your login credentials.
Step 6: Enter Credentials
Enter your login credentials, which are usually provided by the hotel or RV park.
