Xfinity on Campus
Xfinity on Campus is only available to students who reside on-campus. Xfinity on Campus is an IPTV streaming service which allows students to stream live TV, and thousands of Xfinity On Demand™ shows and movies directly to their laptops, desktops, and mobile devices (Apple, Android, Kindle). Students can also use a Roku Streaming Player device to access this service on their TV.
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.
