Philo IP-TV is currently being evaluated campus-wide. The Computing Services Unified Communications, Cable TV and Networking teams will be watching this service closely as it goes through a pilot.
Philo uses an encoder that retransmits our TV stations over IP into our network. The service can be accessed on campus WiFi as well as the Cyert Hall and Dorm wired networks.
Anyone living in the dorms has full access to the service, while all other Andrew userIDs have limited access with free over-the-air channels.
