  3. Open the app and look for a link towards the bottom of the screen that reads “Connect with your institution” Click on this.
  4. The app will identify that you are on the Yale network and prompt you to create an account. Go ahead and create this. This account is separate to your Yale login.
  5. Once you have created this account, you can then use this to log into the app and can access the streaming service anywhere (i.e you don’t have to be on the Yale network anymore)
