Have you ever wanted to watch your favorite New York sports teams on your Roku device? With MSG GO, you can stream live games and programming from the MSG Networks right on your TV.
The catch? MSG GO doesn’t have its own channel in the Roku store. But not to worry – you can still access it using a handy workaround called screen mirroring.
Let me walk you through how to set this up step-by-step. By the end, you’ll be cheering on the Rangers, Knicks, or Sabres in no time!
What You’ll Need Beforehand
Before we dive in, make sure you have the following:
- A subscription to a cable TV provider that offers MSG GO, like:
- Charter Spectrum
- A Roku device that’s connected to your TV
- An iPhone, Android phone, tablet, or computer to mirror the screen
Once you’ve got those covered, you’re ready to roll!
Enabling Screen Mirroring on Your Roku
The first thing to do is turn on screen mirroring so your Roku can receive the video feed from your other device. Here’s how:
- Press the Home button on your Roku remote to get to the main menu.
- Select Settings > System > Screen Mirroring.
- Choose either Prompt or Always Allow.
And that’s it! Your Roku is now ready to mirror a screen.
Downloading the MSG GO App
Next, you’ll want to download the MSG GO app on your phone, tablet, or computer – whichever device you plan to mirror from.
If you’re using an Android, like I do, just head to the Play Store and search for “MSG GO”. Tap install, enter your TV provider login when prompted, and you’re good to go!
Starting the Screen Mirroring
This last part is simple. Make sure your devices are on the same Wi-Fi network.
On your mirroring device:
- Open the MSG GO app and start playing a video.
- Swipe down from the top to open your notifications shade.
- Tap the Cast icon.
- Select your Roku from the device list.
The MSG GO video should pop up on your TV screen in just a moment! Pretty cool right?
Now you can sit back and enjoy live sports, highlights, and analysis from New York’s favorite sports network. No need to miss a game just because it’s not on a major channel.
