After December 29, 2015, ACES will no longer be providing “premium” television programming on our campus cable TV system, due to a large drop in the usage of our campus cable TV system and rising cost of acquiring content that has made our premium cable TV operations too expensive to operate.
How can you get ESPN, etc.?
Most users will be able to get content via online sources. See the list of some of the more popular online video services below. Of these, Sling TV offers a programming lineup (including ESPN) that most closely matches the current ACES premium service.
YouTube—Generally free, lots of independent content and highlights from popular shows, some live event programming
Netflix—Starting at $7.99/month, variety of movies, TV shows (previously broadcast) and some original content
Amazon Prime—$49/year for students, similar to Netflix, some Amazon original content, also includes commercial free music
Hulu—Starting at $7.99/month, many current season shows from ABC, NBC, FOX, and more, some original content
Sling TV—Starting at $20/month, many live channels such as ESPN, CNN, TNT, HGTV, Disney, and many more
How do you watch online TV/video?
All of the above services let you watch on computers, most tablets & smartphones, and many smart TVs & media players. If you want to watch on a TV that is not a “smart TV”, we highly recommend using a media player that plugs into a wired network connection since wireless media players (the “stick type”) probably will not connect gracefully to the campus wireless network. If you buy a media player, be sure that it has connections that work with your existing TV.
