How To Register Your Roku Device on the Campus Network

A Roku device allows you to watch various apps, including SpectrumU, on your TV (this also applies to TVs that have Roku functionality built-in). Be sure the device is already plugged into an HDMI port on your TV.

The registration process requires that you know the MAC address of your device. Here are a few ideas to help you get the MAC address:

A) If your device is fresh out of the box and has not yet been setup, follow the on-screen steps to set up a new wireless connection. When it shows a list of available wireless networks, scroll to "Private network". The MAC address is on that screen.

B) If your device has already been setup (i.e. at home), select "Network > Setup > About". The MAC address is on that screen.

C) Some Roku devices have slightly different screens. Just know that you need to find the wireless MAC address and it's usually found in the network settings area.

Once you have the MAC address, complete the Device Registration form. The form will guide you through the rest of the process.

After the device is registered, you just need to connect it to the "snc" WiFi network. Some devices also require that you have an account at Roku.com. Just follow the prompts on the screen.

Once your device is on the "snc" network, you can install apps, like "Spectrum".

If you see an error regarding HDCP, this means that your TV does not support HDCP (High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection). Our best suggestion is to follow the information that Roku provides on the following page: http://go.roku.com/HDCPhelp
