Get Your Cable from AT&T

AT&T is the new on-campus cable provider. In the spring Wesleyan ended its deal with Comcast, so if you were worried about not having a minimum of 109 television channels available in your room for $44 a month, have no fear. AT&T cable will also be available to watch in 44 common areas and throughout Usdan.

If this is really exciting news to you, get the full announcement at the ITS blog.

    The Comcast connection still worked in freshman Fauver, too. Given that all the digging sites were marked "NO ATT/U," my guess is that AT&T just has to lay some master line going into the campus; until that happens, every location will continue to get the old Comcast service. I'm probably completely off base, but I can't think of any other reason AT&T wouldn't lay lines to every building when the steam and chilled-water lines and transformers are all being dug up already.

    For some reason the rest of my house only gets 11 channels, but my room gets 62. I am moved in and the comcast service is currently still up. I’m crossing my fingers…

    Yeah, but the university-provided basic cable was basically TBS, QVC, and a handful of local stations.At least we’re not Brown, with its eight-channel DirecTV service (and no ability to upgrade).
