In response to a student initiative, the college switched to Comcast’s Xfinity on Campus for its cable TV service starting July 1, 2018. This means that every TV on campus which receives its programming via a coax cable from the wall will no longer receive any programming.
Offices wishing to continue access to cable programming should contact AskIT@amherst.edu to discuss available options. Students are able to access cable programming in their residences via internet over the device(s) of their choice and may subscribe to premium channels as they wish. Common spaces in residence halls will receive programming via Roku or similar devices.
Students may log into Xfinity on Campus with their Amherst credentials to access streaming live and recorded programming.
Please contact AskIT@amherst.edu if you have any questions.
