Dorm TV

Improve the student experience with better dorm TV

As colleges and universities compete to win and retain students, they can impress prospective students with a commitment to state-of-the-art connectivity and educational technology, and help to enhance the student experience, by providing superior dorm TV technology.

Today’s student body is extremely savvy when it comes to video and technology; they expect dorm TV viewing experiences to meet or exceed the quality of their TV options at home. Whether on standard TVs or on smart phones and mobile devices, students want access to their favorite programs for entertainment and educational purposes. But as colleges and universities face budgetary constraints, it can be difficult to meet student expectations for quality dorm room TV.

To help higher ed institutions deliver on student demand for superior dorm TV experiences, Spectrum Enterprise offers fiber-based services for centralized, distributed and mobile video capabilities.
