Free Internet TV debuts with 28 channels
After months of anticipation, Yalies on Friday could finally stream live high-definition TV to their laptops through IPTV provider Tivli. Yale, say hello to the new service and goodbye to your productivity.
While Tivli currently features 28 channels ranging from the History Channel to Comedy Central, it is notably missing HBO GO, the on-demand archive of HBO which ITS said in the fall would be included in the offering. When asked, Director of ITS Network Services David Galassi said in an email that HBO GO will arrive as soon as Tivli, Yale and HBO finalize technical details.
Tivli is accessible via computers and Roku boxes. In addition, support for iPhone, iPads and Android devices is coming in the near future, according to the Tivli website.
Signing onto Tivli requires both Facebook and CAS login. Currently, only undergraduates living on campus may access the service.
Tivli offerings are listed below:
- Animal Planet
- Comedy Central
- Food Network
- History Channel
- Discovery Channel
