How to set up Philo Edu on a Roku

Registering your Roku with Philo Edu requires four easy steps:

1. Ensure that your Roku is fully configured.

Roku setup instructions can be found here.

If you access a campus wifi using login credentials, there is a special procedure for connecting your Roku to the network. Your campus IT Help Center can guide you through this process.

2. Add the Philo Edu channel to your Roku account.

On your computer, visit

Click the Add Channel button.

3. Download the Philo Edu channel to your Roku device.

Turn on your Roku and navigate back to the Home screen.

Go to Settings > System > System Update > Check Now.

After the update, navigate back to Home. Philo Edu will appear in your list of installed channels.

4. Register your Roku with your Philo Edu account.

On your computer, log in to

Click the Roku Registration link at the bottom of the page.

Enter your device code.

Select Add.

After a few minutes, your Roku will automatically update and you will have access to Philo Edu.
