XFINITY On Campus

We are excited to announce the start of XFINITY On Campus IPTV streaming service for all residents!

This new service will provide the award-winning XFINITY service with 80+ channels (including HBO), On Demand, a personal DVR, and the ability to easily order additional channels (such as premium sports packages) for a nominal monthly fee. Residents are unable to purchase Pay Per View Events. Click the following link to see our Live TV and TV GO Streaming Channel Line Up!

This service is available to resident’s smartphones and tablets (using the Comcast Streaming App), laptops, and desktop computers connected to the Campus "CSUEB" Wi-Fi Network.

University Village Residents

Since you are connected to the "UVHayward" wifi network and considered an off-campus network, the only services that will be provided are On Demand, TV Go Channels, and DVR Recordings. It does not include the live TV streaming service because it is a property that the University has leased through a private owner. The property management has contracted with Video Direct to provide DirectTV for the residents of University Village. The apartment complex was not included in the XFINITY contract.

Pioneer Height Residents that would like to use a traditional TV, additional equipment is required, such as:

  • A Roku Device (more Information and where to buy please visit www.roku.com)
  • A Roku Enabled SmartTV

You must download the XFINITY Stream App on your Roku device or Roku enabled SmartTV to access to live TV, sports, movies and more.
