Cable & Streaming

The provider for UMN-TV changed from Comcast Xfinity to Apogee on June 14, 2023. This page has instructions for accessing the new service. Submit a Connect It request if you require support.

All residents have access to UMN-TV from the day they move in (Twin Cities campus only). With it, you can watch 80 high definition channels via internet streaming as well as cable (Coaxial) TV outlets,* and mobile applications from major broadcast networks.

Please note: Coaxial TV cables are not provided, so you will need to bring your own if you are not using a streaming device/computer.

* Cable TV outlets are not provided in Pioneer Hall. Review the information below for more details.

Live at Radius Apartments?

Radius Exterior

Radius has separate services for internet and TV that are not a part of the University network, preventing access to UMN-TV. You may access UMN-TV streaming services while in other areas of campus. The Radius channel lineup differs from the UMN-TV lineup.

Please note: A TV is provided in each apartment, but you will need to bring your own coaxial cable to connect to the TV services.

How do I watch?

B1G+ On-Campus Access
