Watch Philo (IPTV) on a Television

Authors list

Method 1: Plug Your Computer into the TV

In most cases, you can use a cable to plug your computer into your TV and display whatever's on your computer screen (for example, TV content!) You will need the appropriate cable, and possibly an adapter, depending on the inputs and outputs on your computer and TV.

Check out Best Buy's guide on what's needed to connect your laptop to a TV, which includes pictures of the different adapters.

Method 2: Use a Roku

A Roku is a device costing about $50 that you can plug into your TV to stream content from different services such as Netflix. Rokus are easy to connect to the Brown-Guest network and feature a Philo channel (Philo is the company that provides our IPTV service).

Instructions: Connect a Roku to the Brown-Guest Network and set up IPTV
