Comcast (NASDAQ:CMCSA) is deploying its Xfinity on Campus service in Georgia and Texas, at Clark Atlanta University and Texas Southern University, respectively.

The service supports live TV, Xfinity On Demand and recorded content on IP-enabled devices, including laptops, tablets, smartphones and Roku players. The TV Everywhere service is included with room and board for students living in on-campus housing.

"Students who reside on campus at Clark Atlanta University can now turn any mobile device into a television, enabling them to easily view their favorite live content on the go," said Doug Guthrie, Comcast's regional senior vice president. "They can also enjoy Xfinity on Demand's extensive library of movies and television shows any time."

CAU is the sixth institute of higher learning in Atlanta to launch Xfinity on Campus, joining Emory University, Clayton State University, Savannah College of Art and Design, and Morehouse and Spelman colleges.

In Texas, Dr. Raphael X. Moffett, vice president of student services at Texas Southern University, said: "Texas Southern is proud to offer Comcast's cutting-edge technology to our students and enhance their on-campus experience. Students in residential housing can utilize the service both for research and relaxation."
