Comcast (NASDAQ:CMCSA) is bringing its Xfinity On Campus service to University of Maryland, Baltimore County (UMBC), allowing students to watch live TV, on-demand and recorded content on IP-enabled devices, including laptops, tablets, and smartphones. The multiscreen video service is included with room and board for students living in on-campus housing.

Xfinity On Campus offers more than 100 live channels through Comcast's Xfinity Stream app and portal. The service also includes access to current season TV shows and movies via Xfinity On Demand. While off campus, students can use the Xfinity Stream app to login and access TV Everywhere programming that's part of their subscription.

"UMBC joins a distinguished list of area colleges and universities offering this unique service to its on-campus students," said Jeff Seidenfaden, vice president of sales and marketing for Comcast's Beltway Region. "Students can now turn their mobile devices into a television, enabling them to easily view their favorite live content on the go, anytime. We hope UMBC students enjoy it on campus and beyond."

Students can also upgrade their Xfinity On Campus accounts to include premium channels, including HBO, Showtime and the Sports Entertainment Package.

UMBC joins 16 schools in the Beltway Region whose students have access to Xfinity On Campus.

Xfinity On Campus is intended to introduce a younger audience to Comcast's Xfinity X1 cloud-based residential service.
