Philo

The future of television is now available at Pitt-Johnstown!

Philo Edu lets you watch TV on your TV, computer, or mobile devices from anywhere in your residence hall.  With access to 60 channels, you have the option of watching live TV or recording shows for later with Philo Edu’s DVR capability. Atlantic Broadband access is no longer available in the residence halls.

 Here’s what you need…

Television 

Connect Philo Edu to your TV via Roku.

Once Roku is connected, it needs to be registered in the University's gaming network at technology.pitt.edu/gaming. (Select "smart TV" when asked for device type.)

For detailed information on how to configure your Roku box, click here for support.

A Roku TV, a smart TV with built-in Roku, or Roku device, running software version 4.7 or higher, is required to view Philo Edu on your TV.  A smart TV that does not contain the Roku app will not work on the system.
