CAS provides the campus with cable television with our partner Apogee and programming being determined by the University. Geneseo’s cable TV system is an all-digital TV delivery system and live streaming.
With OnStream, you are provided a custom lineup of live streaming tv accessible through your SUNY Geneseo authorized campus network. OnStream allows you to stream the live TV you love, wherever you want on campus, on your own devices – no TV required. Just access via www.watchdishtv.com. Windows, Android, and iOS devices with web browsers (Chrome, Safari, Edge with the current version, or 1 prior) are supported. There is also a separate OnStream app for FireTV.
Bringing a Television to Campus
If you plan on bringing a television to campus, you will need to make sure that your TV has a digital Clear QAM tuner. These tuners are built into many but not all televisions. You can verify that your television has a Clear QAM tuner by checking the manufacturer's specifications either the time of purchase or by looking up the make and model of the television on the manufacturer's website. If you already have a television that does not have an internal Clear QAM tuner, you can purchase a converter box. (We recommend the iView 3500STB II due to its compatibility with the new service).
If you need any help using OnStream, connecting your devices, or have a general cable tv question, a support representative is available 24 hours a day to assist you.
