Lynn University Lights Up Xfinity on Campus

Lynn University of Florida has joined a growing list of schools to launch Xfinity On Campus, an IP-based video service from Comcast that is powered by the operator’s X1 platform.

The service, available to on-campus students at the Boca Raton-based university, supports apps for Web browsers and iOS and Android tablets and smartphones, and certain Amazon Kindle devices.

As of the fall of 2016, Lynn University had 2,842 students, including 2,095 undergrads.

Per the announcement, Xfinity On Campus offers nearly 80 live cable channels and is available to students living on campus at no added cost. Those students also have access to a range of authenticated TV Everywhere apps, such as WatchESPN and FXNow, that can be viewed when they are on the go.

Last fall, Comcast said it signed up 36 more schools for Xfinity On Campus, including the University of Notre Dame, Temple University, and Villanova, while also extending features such as a Cloud DVR. Comcast said more than 60 schools are now on board with Xfinity On Campus.

Following a trial period, Comcast launched Xfinity On Campus commercially in August 2014
