RHA discusses providing Netflix-like movie streaming service to residence halls

Signing onto the $30,000 service would allow on-campus students to stream more 200 movies from the residence halls at any time. The distributor, Swank Motion Picture, provides Netflix-like movie streaming to about 200 universities through its Residence Life Cinema page. It currently represents major studios like Walt Disney Pictures, Warner Bros., Sony Pictures, NBC Universal Pictures, New Line Cinema and Lionsgate. It provides online streaming through tablets, mobile phones, and gaming consoles. On the movie page, students can upload “bumpers,” which work like ads, for promoting philanthropies and other events and addressing issues like campus safety. – The Daily Nebraskan
