Campus Cable TV Being Discontinued

Effective Date: January 7, 2022

On January 7, 2022, AIT will turn off our campus cable TV system. Some of the antiquated equipment has failed and the prolific availability of streaming services renders this service obsolete. Furthermore, access to premium cable TV channels from Dish Network was discontinued in July 2020. Consequently, we will no longer offer this service to the campus.

Key Benefit

  • Eliminating cost and effort needed to support an obsolete technology

Impact on College Community

Many of you may not even notice this change.  However, if you were in the habit of using any of the cable channels, you should now look for streaming options instead.  For example, Wheaton College undergraduate chapel can be viewed live at wheaton.edu/streaming.   

If you have any questions, please contact us at ait.service.desk@wheaton.edu or call 630.752.4357 (HELP).
