Watch on your laptop
Go to https://watch.spectrum.net/domainsearch/
Enter our school domain, csun.edu, as shown, and click Submit. Keep in mind do not enter my.csun.edu as a domain
You will be prompted to enter you CSUN credentials. Enjoy
Watch on your device
The Spectrum app is available for download on the following platforms:
On three of the above platforms, install the SpectrumU app (with the blue "U" icon). On Roku, the app is called "Spectrum TV", not SpectrumU. When you launch the app, it will detect that you're on our network and automatically switch you to the SpectrumU service.
Note also that while SpectrumU is supported on Chromecast, this device will not work on our network due to the method it uses to communicate with your smartphone.
Watch on your traditional TV
To watch SpectrumU on a traditional TV, you'll need to get the app on a supported device (i.e. laptop, Apple TV, Roku) and connect via HDMI. This will also work great on a smart TV with Roku built-in.
- SpectrumU will only work while your device is connected to the college network ("eduroam" or "csun_prt_devices" wifi and wired in park apartments).
- If the network is connected properly, the app prompts you to CSUN authentication. Students must login with CSUN credentials.
Spectrum provides Spectrum U in University Park Apartments and Village Apartments. https://enterprise.spectrum.com/services/television/spectrumu.html.
