So you’ve got your screen and are ready to connect to a CMS and publish your content!

In this guide we’ll walk you through how to Install Fugo on your device, pair your screen, and start displaying your content.

Let’s get started!

1. Install the Fugo player app onto your device

1.1 Make sure your device is connected to your screen and to the internet via WiFi or ethernet network.

1.2 Next you'll need to install the Fugo player app on your device. Installation instructions vary depending on which device and player platform you have. You can find your device instructions below 👇

1.3 Once the app is installed, launch it on your screen.

1.4 Launching the app will automatically generate a PIN on your screen. We’ll cover where to enter this PIN in the next section.

💡 Note: Fugo runs on most consumer hardware, giving you an easy and flexible platform to manage your digital signage. You can go here to find out more about the hardware we support.

If you haven’t selected any hardware, you can try out Fugo on your laptop, PC, or tablet with our Chrome extension player.

2. Pair your screen to Fugo CMS

2.1 If you have not registered a Fugo account yet, you can head over to to start your 14-day free trial.

2.2 After successfully logging in, you can click Add Screens on the Welcome page. Alternatively, you can navigate to the Screens page in the top navigation bar and click Create Screen.

2.3 Enter the PIN from the Fugo player window into the space provided.

2.4 To finish the pairing process, give your screen a name and add a location.

💡 We recommend you name your player something relevant such as 68 Lombard Street or Clapham Coffee Shop. For my example, I’ve named my screen “Fugo HQ.” The address should be your screen’s location.

2.5 Your screen will now be listed on your Screens page.

Congratulations, you’ve added your screen! Here, have this cake 🍰 to celebrate!

Now you’re ready to start publishing content. We’ll cover that in the next section.

3. Publish content with Fugo CMS

With your player ready to go, you’re ready to give it something to play!

Fugo allows you to display several types of content:

You can use our Design Studio to create screen-ready content like digital posters & menu boards without having to leave Fugo for a 3rd party tool - learn how here.

When your content is ready to go on screen, you can use our friendly playlist builder to publish your content - learn how here.

There you go! It really is that easy to set up your player and publish your content with Fugo!
