Frequently Asked Questions

Digital TV at UQ

This service allows staff & students access to live TV feeds for educational and special event purposes. It reduces the need for external antennas all over UQ sites.

Does this affect my download quota?

Using UQ’s digital television feed does not affect your download quota.

Does this slow down the network?

No. UQ has a state of the art high speed network. While watching television does require some bandwidth, the systems administrators at Information Technology Services have configured systems so that even if multiple computers in the same place are streaming this service you will notice no noticeable change in network quality.

Can I use this at home?

No. This service only works on the UQ network – i.e. you need to be on campus for this to work.

Can I use this at college?

The colleges are on a different network to the rest of the campus. This service does not work in colleges.

Does this work over wireless?

The TV streams are accessible via UQ's wireless networks, though due to the high amount of bandwidth required to reliably stream TV, the performance is very poor. It is strongly recommended that you use a wired connection.
