In response to a student initiative, the college is switching to Comcast’s Xfinity on Campus for its cable TV service starting July 1, 2018. Students will be able to access cable programming in their residences via internet over the devices 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.
Offices, staff or faculty wishing to continue access to cable programming should contact AskIT@amherst.edu to discuss available options.
*Note: Due to licensing restrictions from Comcast, only students enrolled in classes for the current semester may log into Xfinity.
