Philo Edu TV Service

Miami University is pleased to offer Philo Edu to our on-campus residents. Philo Edu allows you to watch live television on your own terms – on laptops and other devices anywhere on campus. With a stellar channel lineup, the ability to pause and rewind live TV, and 20 hours of your own DVR space, Philo Edu gives you the flexibility and control you need to stay up-to-date on sports, current events, and the shows that matter to you most.

Philo is available online via most popular web browsers and offers Android and iOS native apps for free download to students’ mobile devices. Students can also watch Philo on traditional TV sets through a Roku device or through AppleTV via iOS 6+ mobile devices or compatible Mac computers. Complete instructions on how to access Philo can be found below.

  • Visit the Philo Website for details about how to load Philo on a Roku streaming TV device.
  • Miami University Philo Login. Access Philo Edu by signing in with your Miami credentials. The system will recognize those who live in the residence halls, allowing them to connect to the service.
  • Students must be within the Miami Network (ie. actually on campus) for the service to work.
  • Have a question?  Philo Edu Help Center is the place to go!
