HOUSTON (March 12, 2018) – Comcast has partnered with Texas Southern University (TSU) to offer its Xfinity On Campus service to TSU students. Students can now watch live TV, On Demand and recorded content on their IP-enabled devices, including laptops, tablets, smartphones and Roku players. The service is included with room and board and available to more than 800 students living in on-campus housing.

Xfinity On Campus offers 80 live channels, including every major broadcast network, as well as Bravo, Comedy Central, ESPN, FX and MTV channels through Comcast’s Xfinity Stream app and portal. The service also includes access to thousands of current TV shows and hit movies via Xfinity On Demand. Students can use the Xfinity Stream app away from campus to access TV Everywhere programming as part of their subscription.

“Texas Southern is proud to offer this cutting-edge technology to our students and enhance their on-campus experience,” said Dr. Raphael X. Moffett, vice president of Student Services. “Students in residential housing can utilize the system both for research and relaxation.”

“Bringing Xfinity on Campus to TSU is a true game-changer for students,” said Ralph Martinez, senior vice president for Comcast in Houston. “We know that this young generation of viewers consumes content while on the move, at their convenience, and across multiple devices. Xfinity on Campus meets this need and serves as a nice value add for students residing on campus.”

TSU has opted to add premium channels to its campus lineup, including HBO, Cinemax and the Sports Entertainment Package, with popular shows such as ESPN Goal Line. Students can upgrade their individual accounts to include Showtime and STARZ.

“Our IT staff has been working diligently to increase the campus network to improve the technology experience for TSU students. We are proud of the result in providing optimum service to a tech-savvy generation,” said Luis Villarreal, chief information officer, TSU Office of Information Technology.
