NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Tennessee State University and cable television giant Comcast have partnered to launch a service unique to Tennessee.

They recently announced Xfinity on Campus, which lets students watch live TV and On Demand content on their IP-enabled devices, including laptops, tablets and smartphones.

According to a news release from the university, it's Comcast's first launch of the service in Tennessee. Several colleges and universities elsewhere have already taken advantage of the service.

Xfinity On Campus offers about 80 live cable channels, including every major broadcast network.

The service is included with room and board for students living in on-campus housing.

Students off campus can use their university credentials to authenticate and access online programming that's part of their subscription via TV Everywhere websites and apps, such as WatchESPN and FXNOW.
