Apple TV & Chromecast


Please be advised that not all services associated with Apple TVs or Chromecast work on the BC campus. Apple TVs & Chromecast were designed to work in home network environments, and therefore do not fully function on a campus network environment.


Apple TVs & Chromecast are designed for, and work well in, simple home networks. They do not work across IP address subnets. On the BC network, devices are likely in different subnets and will not be able to communicate. Many universities are experiencing the same issue with Apple TV & Chromecast.
