Cable TV

Each resident room on campus receives cable TV service. It is free to students. 

Cable TV can be enabled upon request in conference rooms for a recurring monthly charge. To make a request, administrators should contact IT Service Desk.

The campus cable service requires a digital-ready television with a compatible NTSC/QAM tuner. If your television does not have this capability, use it with an external converter box with a NTSC/QAM tuner.

Stream cable TV live!

Campus residents can connect to the Fordham WiFi network to stream their favorite shows from a browser on smart TVs, tablets, laptops, and smartphones. To connect, your web browser must support HLS (http live streaming). If your browser does not support HLS, please download an HLS plugin for your device. 

Please note: IPTV services are only available to resident students while they are on their respective campus and connected to the Fordham Wi-Fi. This service will not be available while connected to the Fordham network via VPN connection.
