new streaming service
Watch live TV anywhere on Campus!
Housing & Residential Education is excited to offer SpectrumU as a replacement for Cable TV. This service will allow students to watch live TV and an array on-demand content anywhere on campus using your phone, tablet, laptop, or desktop. It is also available on Apple TV, Chromecast, and Roku devices.
SpectrumU is a video streaming service that uses @uwgb.edu account to access over 200 channels, along with a wide selection of on-demand shows and movies. SpectrumU will be the replacement for cable TV starting late December on campus.
When connected to the University wired or wireless internet, SpectrumU allows on-campus residents have access to expanded channel lineup and stream On-Demand content. This service will not be available for any devices connected to the "wireless guest" network. When not connected to the campus network you are still able to use the service, but some content will be unavailable and you will be limited to a single stream.

Laptops and smart phones should connect to the "eduroam" wireless network. When signing into SpectrumU, if prompted for the domain, enter "uwgb.edu".
