Time Warner Selected as Campus Cable TV Service Provider
Rensselaer has selected Time Warner Cable to be the supplier of television programming and service for the campus. The five-year contract, which followed a competitive and extensive RFP process, began Dec. 1, 2012.
Through this process, the Rensselaer Television Network will be able to increase to 65 the quantity of digital/high-definition channels being offered on campus. The service also adds 45 channels of digital music, as well as three channels of the Showtime Movie network.
And for sports fans, the YES network and the MSG and MSG+ networks in high definition have been added. For a complete channel lineup, visit http://mms.rpi.edu and follow the Time Warner Cable TV link on the right sidebar.
Over the coming months, additional enhancements also will be provided, including the upgrade of all local origination programming to high definition. A web portal whereby home/off-campus users can order products from Time Warner, with a portion of the proceeds coming back to the campus, is also planned.
