Service Overview

The University has partnered with Philo to provide IPTV streaming services for all of our cable TV channels. This service allows you to stream the same TV programming available on the cable television system, to your computer or mobile device. The system also includes DVR service, with up to 20 hours of recording for each user. The Philo service is available to all students who are currently housed on campus, as well as to faculty for classroom use. The Philo service is only accessible when attached to the university network (wired or wireless).
