We are planning to upgrade our dorm TV service on campus. We currently have Dish, but are looking at switching to Charter Cable and DirecTV.

Any suggestions from anyone that has a system in place they are pleased with?

Mark,

 

We have been using Campus Televideo at Dean College for the last three years and they have been a good vendor to partner with.

Mark--

You might want to check out your local cable TV provider.... we were able to create five year contract with built in escalation at substantial savings over Campus Televideo cost.  Must smaller footprint for tech equipment as well.  CTv did provide good customer service, but no better than our local provider.  Plus, with the local provider, we have over a dozen HD channels on base plan, and the opportunity for students to contract directly with company for premium channels, PPV and upgraded service.  The possibility of the student business for 'extras' helped keep the base price low. 

Good luck.

Lee, they can do that with no set top converters and proprietary remotes at each drop? That is where we don’t want to go. Management of that is a nightmare.

Mike--
That's correct... as long as set is cable ready.  Boxes only come into play if student wants upgraded services... cable company treats them like apartment dwellers re deposits, cc on file, set top box and remote.

That’s good. Our local cable provider requires a set top box for everyone, even those just getting the basic channels.

Just an FYI on this, too - last fall there was discussion that the cable companies were asking the FCC for permission to encrypt local channels on their cable systems, which will then require a cable box for all local channels.

Here is the FCC NPR:

http://apps.fcc.gov/ecfs/document/view.action?id=7021738292

Specifically this is for all-digital cable systems.

When it was published in the Federal Register in October 2011, it had:

Right now, I don't see where this stands right now.

Our local cable system made this change last year. They encrypt everything. If you don’t have one of their set top boxes you get nothing but a message on the TV to connect a converter

Colleagues......  Quick question:

Who owns the contract for these services on your campus and what business model do you use to distribute the services throughout your campuses?  (i.e: Does the Housing & Residential Life organization essentially serve as your institution's cable TV contractual 'business' owner and pay the IT organization to support IPTV - or does the IT organization serve as the business owner and seek funding from the institution, Res Life, or several other sources in some sort of charge-back model)?

If this isn't a question appropriately continued on this list, feel free to drop me a note directly.

Thanks, in advance, for clarity that any of you can provide to me on this...  -B

Good Morning, Bernie,

    Res Life is the business owner at UVM, but our Telecom organization is integral in planning, RFP evaluation, etc, because of the interdependence on infrastructure.
