After reviewing student feedback and usage data, Cabrini has followed the path of other universities nationwide in no longer providing cable television service to individual residence hall rooms. As many schools phase out legacy “wired” internet, Cabrini University is prepared to meet the streaming needs of students with a newly completed WIFI enhancement project across the entire campus.
Watching content on your computer or mobile device is typically straightforward and usually involves going to a service's website or launching a mobile app. If you have a "Smart TV", then it is likely you can connect it directly to our network (wireless where available) and watch via the menus on your TV. If your TV does not have that capability, then you will need an add-on device like a Roku, Amazon Fire Stick, Apple TV, Chromecast, Video Game Console, or Digital TV Antennae. The services and capabilities vary greatly from device to device.
Some examples of how students will access TV entertainment include:
1. Cable Network Channels Online (free)
Most major networks post recently aired episodes to their websites for a limited amount of time. CBS even offers online viewers an additional paid subscription option ($6 per month) to unlock more than 8,500 episodes of everything from The Brady Bunch to The Good Wife. And if you own a smart TV or another streaming device (like Apple TV or Roku), you can download many network apps straight to your device and watch there—and most of them are free!
2. YouTube/Vimeo (free)
YouTube is known for hosting thousands of viral videos. But it’s also a great place to learn. You can even watch many classic shows and movies there too! Are indie films and documentaries more your thing? Check out Vimeo.
3. Fee per month offerings
Students can subscribe to HBO NOW, Showtime, and Starz as stand-alone services or add them to their Hulu, Netflix, Amazon Prime, Roku, and/or Sling accounts for an extra fee. NOTE: Amazon Prime offers a much cheaper student rate vs. non-student rate.
