Connecting XFINITY on Campus to your TV using a Roku Player
To stream to your television set, connect a Roku player (you supply) to your TV's HDMI input and download the "Xfinity Stream Beta" Channel From the Roku Channel Store to unleash all of the Xfinity On Campus features on your TV. There is no charge to download or watch the Xfinity Stream channel.
When selecting a ROKU model for campus housing, please select a "dual-band" Roku Model that supports "WiFi-802.11ac". Other models will not take advantage of Drexel's high performance WiFi network and may result in less than superior watching experiences.
Supported ROKU Models
The Following Roku products are preferred because they support dual-band WiFi 802.11ac (operating in the superior 5Ghz radio spectrum). These are recommended for use in campus housing locations due to the large number of WiFi devices deployed by student residents.
Streamnig Stick 3800R
Streaming Stick 3810R
Roku players below support "XFINITY Stream"; however, their performance will suffer in high density campus housing locations because they do not support dual-band WiFi (they only operate in the very old 2.4Ghz radio spectrum):
Streaming Stick (3800, 3600)
Streaming Stick+ (3810)
Express (3900, 3700)

Connect your Roku player to Dragonfly-Play in the Residence Halls

DragonFly-Play is an open network that does not require you to configure a Wi-Fi password nor should it require any network registration or web portal sign-in. If your Roku player supports an Ethernet connection, you can connect it to the wired network, be sure to connect to an active jack.
