Wesleyan is done with its contract with ComCast to provide Cable TV to students and isn’t renewing it, mostly because most of you now watch computers instead of TV. There will still be cable in lounges, but if you want it in your room next year you get it yourself. From campus-wide email:
Before proceeding with another 5 year commitment, we wanted to gather information regarding the number of TVs that students bring to campus as well as informally poll them on their TV viewing habits. We determined that less than 25% of the students bring a TV and that many prefer to watch their TV shows on computer… based on this data, we have decided to no longer offer Comcast Cable TV to Wesleyan students after May 31. After this date, any student who wishes to have Cable TV service will directly contract with a Cable TV provider to customize the channel lineup and pay for it directly.
