Pioneer Residents

Pioneer Hall is designed to use IPTV, meaning all channels are streamed over the Internet from a device, instead of coaxial (cable) service. We recommend the following options to stream your favorite shows with UMN-TV:
  • A Roku device connected to your TV – or a TV with a built-in Roku – is compatible with Comcast XFINITY On Campus (XOC). Learn about Roku Beta for XFINITY On Campus, including details on connecting and compatible models, on the Xfinity website.
  • A laptop or computer on it’s own or connected to your TV can access the XOC or any of your own subscriptions (e.g., Amazon Prime, Netflix, Hulu, etc.).
  • HBO Max access is included in XOC. 
  • TVs on each floor lounge are an alternative to bringing your own.
