Xfinity on Campus
All students who live on campus will have access to Xfinity on Campus. This is an online streaming service that allows students to stream live TV, and watch on-demand videos directly on their laptops, desktops, smartphones, and tablets anywhere on campus (some features also available off-campus). To access this service on a TV, students will need to use a Roku streaming player (or a TV with a built-in Roku).

BC Cable TV is only available to students who reside on-campus. BC Cable gives you access to a BC-specific cable channel lineup. There is a cable connection at each bed and in common areas of most residence halls. To connect, you need a coaxial cable, and TVs must be equipped with a built-in QAM tuner.

Game Consoles, Media Players, and Smart TVs
Game consoles, media players (such as Rokus), and smart TVs must be manually registered in order to connect them to the "BostonCollege" wireless network. Use a computer that is already on the BC "eduroam" network, and follow these steps to connect.
The On-Demand Movie Service, movies.bc.edu, allows members of the BC community to stream a selection of films on their computer while they are on-campus. These films are a combination of faculty-requested films for academic use as well as films for entertainment purposes only.
