More than 1700 UW residence hall students are watching TV news, sports, and more from their laptops anywhere on campus in a trial run that started in April and runs through spring quarter. The Tivli online TV service provides 32 channels and will likely expand to 72 if implemented in the fall, reports The Daily. Access to HBO and HBO GO was just added this month. Authorized students can point their laptop Web browser to uw.tivli.com. Access to non-local cable channels is only available to HuskyTV subscribers, including UW students living in residence halls.
