First University to Offer Free Streaming of Multiple Movies
Minnesota State Mankato will be the first university in the country offering free streaming of multiple movies to students, faculty and staff through a pilot program initiated by the Student Events Team.
“We are the first university in the entire country, world, to offer this service the way we are doing it,” said Bill Tourville, Student Activities assistant director of campus programming and advisor to the Student Events Team. “This is the first time that students, faculty and staff can watch content from their home with more than one movie available throughout the week.”
Beginning Jan. 10, the free MavFLIX service to the campus community will offer three to four movies each week. Viewers using their Star ID login will access the movies through the www.stomperscinema website. The pilot program will run at least four to five weeks and early movie offerings including “Dune,” “Externals,” and “Matrix 4.” Family viewing hopefuls available through the streaming service include “Clifford,” and “Encanto.”
