OPPORTUNITIES. COLLABORATIONS. RESULTS. 19 It's totally today – Xfinity on Campus. Now, Bridgewater State University resident students can watch live television at any time of day or night, from anywhere on campus, on any Apple, Android or Windows device – your television, smartphone, tablet, Chromebook, laptop or desktop. "But that's not all," said Mary O'Neill, ResNet coordinator. "Xfinity on Campus also gives students the ability to access Xfinity on demand, HBO movies, current or past. It's part of the ResNet package. All students need to do is sign in with their BSU credentials and log in to the URL which we provide." And that's still not all, she said. "Students also have the option of recording 20 hours of movies and shows. And if they want more access – say they want an expanded sports entertainment package, they can contract directly with Xfinity to add the service." Students pay Xfinity directly for any upgrade. Although he commented that he, personally, doesn't have time to watch television, communications major Christopher Sonnie, '20, said, "I think being able to watch programming from anywhere on campus would be great for students who want to catch up on shows before class and such." Sociology major Dajuan Rahim Frasier, '19, was practical, and said, "I think streaming has been very useful. It saves students money from having to purchase subscriptions to other streaming options." Steve Zuromski, associate vice president of Information Technology, worked with Comcast to bring the service to campus. "We believe Xfinity on Campus provides extra value to our resident students." To help make it all happen, Travis Rebello, ResNet technician, coordinated IT's systems and networking teams, assisting when needed. Entertainment on the Go Xfinity on Campus Increased Efficiencies
