This is not your parent's cable provider.

BGSU is now streaming BGTV to your residence hall, your mobile devices and streaming devices so you can watch your favorite shows ANYTIME, ANYWHERE on campus.


There are two ways to access your favorite shows when you live on campus!

OPTION 1: Watch Live TV in Your Room
COST: Free

Every room has access to over 100 HD channels. Just make sure your TV has a QAM tuner and you can plug-and-play as soon as you move-in.

Option 1

OPTION 2: Enhance the BGTV Experience
COST: Free

Download the free STREAM2 app and watch in your room or on the go, enjoy 20 hours of personal DVR, custom channel lineup and more!

Option 2


Option 1: Live TV In Your Room

If you just want to be able to turn on your television and watch what is on ... and you don't need any other features ... this option is for you.

SETUP | Your room is ready for you to setup BGTV when you move-in. In order to receive the full lineup of channels, your TV must be equipped with a QAM Tuner. For most TVs, after you hook it up, simply open the TV menu and run a channel search to access your channels. University Apartment Residents must use the Stream2 App in order to access your channel lineup. 

If you have any questions about accessing live tv in your room or other personal device setup, contact BGSU Student Connect. They have also put together a TV setup guide.

Option 2: Enhance the BGTV Experience

If you are always on the go and want to watch your shows on your schedule, download the Stream2 app and start enjoying the following features:

  • Watch your shows on-the-go AND with your streaming device in your room.
  • Over 100 HD channels streamed directly to your smart TV, tablet and phone.
  • 20 hours of personal DVR storage.
  • Forget to record something? Rewind to the show you missed with 24-hours of auto record.
  • Customize your mobile channels. Watch only what you want, when you want.
